Social Media for Social Good Holiday Event!

I'm fairly new to the blogging world but when given the opportunity to raise money for a favorite animal charity, I thought I'd give it a shot! I'm not 100% sure how this works, so bear with me, please!

Below you will find links to other blogs and how readers can enter a giveaway. I encourage everyone to check them out! Most of these blogs have FaceBook pages as well so don't forget to check them out on FaceBook, too! 

Please leave a comment letting me know what your favorite charity is!

My favorite charity is...kind of complicated. 

I have two but one led me to the other. The second one is my charity of choice and the charity in need. I just couldn't leave out the first one!

My first charity is:

Each year close to 2 million dogs being killed in public shelters. Westside German Shepherd Rescue pulls so many of these dogs ~ not just pure breds and not just German Shepherds. They pull dogs who need to be pulled, thanks to the big heart of their main volunteer. This particular woman is the backbone of Westside. She loves Shepherds, but most importantly, she loves dogs. This is why she has saved so many lives. She is very modest so she wouldn't want to be mentioned, but anyone who knows this organization knowswho I am talking about!

The director and founder has been the driving force of this rescue since 2002, giving endlessly of herself for these dogs she adores. I've never met someone more knowledgeable and dedicated than Robin. She is truly a "hands on" rescuer...no job is below her! You can read all about her here. Thanks to Robin, this organization has rescued and rehabilitated more than 4,000 dogs!

My heart is with this organization for all of the above reasons but there are two even more special reasons:

My Enzo baby!

My Chloe girl!

Westside has led me to another charity. McFarland Animal Shelter. This animal shelter is just starting out. Remember that Westside volunteer with the big heart that I just told you about? Well, she found this shelter and she makes regular runs there to bring supplies and rescue dogs! They are so in need of donations in the form of money, dog food, beds or anything dog related. We need to raise awareness of this shelter so more dogs can be saved and move to their fur-ever homes. They don't have a website yet, but they can be found on FaceBook. Please check it out and if you or anyone you know lives near McFarland (near Bakersfield, California) please have them look to this shelter to help find their next pet!
This is my charity of choice!

Thanks for reading and don't forget to leave a comment!
