As you know, we just returned from BlogPaws, and we’re proud to say that we were sponsored by Pedigree to help them promote their message of helping homeless dogs. One thing we did while there was talking with bloggers about how they can participate in the “Write a Post, Help a Dog” program. It’s a program that’s been super successful; last year’s efforts meant a donation of 2,980 pounds of food to a shelter impacted by Hurricane Irene!
At BlogPaws, we talked with many bloggers about how they can join in the “Write a Post, Help a Dog” program but the good news is that ALL bloggers can participate, whether you’re at BlogPaws or not (and whether yours is a pet blog or not!)
With each post, Pedigree will donate a 17-pound bag of dry food to a shelter. You have until midnight ET on Saturday, June 30 to write your post; the donations are limited to one bag per blog up to 450 bags total. That’s a lot of kibble!
Please, if you are a blogger, we hope you’ll consider writing a post and mentioning the “Write a Post, Help a Dog” initiative. You’re welcome to use these images in your post. Thank you…and thank you from the nearly 4 million dogs that face a homeless situation in the US every year!
**We’re also giving away a BlogPaws swag bag filled with goodies from the conference including some great Dogs Rule gear! Read more about how your post can give you 25 chances to win!**
How to Help
We’ve had some emails from readers asking about what their blog posts should be about so we wanted to supply some additional information. You can write about anything related to this initiative (you’ll find the postcard below that we handed out at BlogPaws) then just add your link to the linky at the bottom of this page…then your post will count! Here are some ideas to help you craft your post:
- Facts and figures. Pedigree has supplied some facts and figures about shelters in the postcard below. You can share these in your post (or even share this image…you’re welcome to pull it to use in your post!)
- You can post this Pedigree badge on your blog and link it to Pedigree Foundation:
- You can post a Wordless Wednesday post with a fun caption on your photo like this. Link it back to this post so your readers can know how to generate a 17-pound donation, too!
