|My new Remember Me Thursday T-shirt|
The campaign was started by Helen Woodward Animal Center, where I've been volunteering pretty much every Monday for the last 10+ years. While I was there this past Monday, I picked up a blogger kit to help raise awareness of the event. And Rita helped me open it. (Of course!)
She even stood in the box. Guess she wanted to let me know some of this stuff is hers! (And now there's already dog hair on my new T-shirt.)
The box included some signs I'll be using to help promote the event on social media,
a "candle" to light for homeless pets on 9/28,
and a T-shirt for me (above), and a bandana for Rita!
|She looks so cute in it!|
Here's how you can participate:
- Share info about the upcoming event with your followers
- Enter the #RememberTheRescue photo contest to win cash and prizes for your favorite shelter! The contest runs September 1 - 30. I'll share more details when the contest is up and running, but for now you can check out last year's winners here.
- Remember to light up social media on 9/28 and spread the word about pet adoption! (Use hashtags #RememberMeThursday or #RememberTheRescue)
- Also on 9/28, light a candle - real or virtual - for homeless pets.
Hope you'll take part!
