Oh, look, it's a human typing this time. I had to wrestle the Laptop away from Glacier. I think he was enjoying this blogging thing quite a bit; especially since he got to tell everyone what a flake I am. Since he's right and I can turn into a flake when I am trying to do too many things at once, I am going to write out a to do" list for the Blogville Valentine's Day dance. This is to help me keep things straight, but also to ask help from the members of Blogville.
Just in case you missed yesterday's post here's a quick recap:
On February 14th 2012, a Valentine's Day Dance is going to be held in the Blogville banquet hall. All of the proceeds made from this fun filled event will go towards helping
Dog Foster Mom
build a privacy fence. Currently, Dog Foster Mom has seven foster dogs living in her home as well as cats. She is incredibly dedicated; keeping one foster dog for two years until his forever home could be found. The privacy fence is necessary as her fosters have managed to get out of her temporary fence and the neighbors have said they will shoot the dogs on sight. Not to mention, Dog Foster Mom is working hard to keep these animals safe: if they are out roaming in the streets, they are no longer safe. So, I have asked the wonderful members of the blogging community to come together to throw an event that will benefit Dog Foster Mom and her foster animals.
Here are the activities to be held in conjunction with the dance.
-A vote for Valentine's Day King and Queen. In order for this to be a success two things must happen.
1. If you would like your beautiful girls or handsome gentlemen to be available for voting, then please send a photo of your contestant with his/her name in the email. Please put "Valentine's Day Vote" somewhere in the subject line of the email.
Please send your photos to:
2. A page needs to be set up with our handsome fellows and gorgeous girls where people can vote for them. If you, or your mom/human/momster, feels that they are technically advanced enough to assist with this page please send me an email to:
-Kissing Booth: That's right. We're bringing it back. The same two things must happen as the vote above in order for this Kissing Booth to be a success. Please send your photos to the above email address with "Kissing Booth participant" somewhere in the subject line. Also, if there is someone who is technically inclined who would like to assist with setting up the Kissing Booth, please let me know. Again at:
*NOTE: The deadline for turning in photos for both the Kissing Booth and Vote for Valentine's King/Queen is January 31 at midnight. We want to have the Kissing Booth and vote open on February first. So, please. If your dog, cat, crab, elephant Etc. thinks they've got what it takes, send me your photos, but NOT after January 31 at midnight*!
-Raffle Prizes: A pawty just isn't a pawty without raffle prizes. I thought I would do raffle tickets a bit differently, since I am in the UK and postage is expensive and slightly unreliable. I will set up a page with the prizes, a Pay Pal account and whoever wants to have their name put in the draw can pay for tickets electronically. Every time tickets are bought, the purchaser's name will be added to a jar where the winner will be drawn from. Photographic updates on how full the jars for each prizes are getting will be displayed. What do you think? Again, if anyone wants to assist with this aspect of the Valentine's Day dance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
-Yummers For Your Sweetie: This was a great suggestion from Sarge, but I am not entirely sure how this page will be designed. Any takers?
I am also going to work on a badge for the Valentine's Day dance that willing Bloggers can display. Is there anything you would like to see in the badge? This is your bash Blogville, let me know what you think and I will work to make it happen. Along the same token, if there is an activity that you would really like added to our line up leave me a message or fire off an email.
This is going to be a great event, benefitting a wonderful human being and her foster animals. Please help out where you can, but most of all, please come out and have a great time on February 14th. :)
