PERSONAL: Maggie's in a Pet Photo Contest

Hello to my blog readers in Canada and the United States.

I'm writing today to ask for your time to help support a pet cause.  Bissell is having a photo contest.  The prizes include a donation to the pet charity of your choice.  Our pet charity is the Aussie Rescue Placement Helpline, which is where we adopted Maggie from last November.  The winner will win a donation of $10,000 to their charity.  Second place wins $5000 to their charity and third place $1000.  A charity can do a lot with that much money.

What's in it for me?  Well, we could win a Bissell product like a pet vacuum (boy that could come in handy with the extra fur around the house these days) and a pet shopping spree (which is in the form of a VISA gift card) so we can keep Maggie stocked in toys, treats and food so she will stop eating MY snacks!! (see the introduction of my January Newsletter for more info about that!)

You remember Maggie, right?  In case you've forgotten, click here.

This contest is LONG!  There are 12 rounds, however, if you make it through in one of the rounds, you don't have to enter in subsequent ones.  The top 5 from each round go through to the finals.

You know what that means??  If you can help get Maggie into the finals in round 2, then you won't have to hear my pleas for votes after round 2 is over!  How awesome would that be?!?! :) haha

I know these things can be tedious at times.  Registering can be a pain in the arse.  But once you're registered, you only have to enter your e-mail address to vote each day.  Unfortunately, you can only vote if you're from Canada or the United States.  They validate that by the e-mail address you sign up with.

Over the past several months I've registered with Pepsi and Aviva contests to support both animal and people causes of friends and followers like you.  I haven't received e-mail SPAM from any of those to date.

So please, if you can spare a minute each day, head on over to Bissell's contest and vote for Maggie.  We need probably around 175 votes or so a day to make it through.  That's a lot of votes!  Please share with your friends and family.  The link is below her photo.


Thank you so much!! xoxo
