Hi everyone! I thought I'd use the blog today to put in a little plug for Natty's alma mater, Northern Illinois Pug Rescue. NIPRA unfortunately has a temporary hold on incoming pugs due to a lack of funds and available foster homes. :( While I know that we all wish we could do more to help the pugs, the reality is that many of us just aren't able to foster, transport, donate monthly, or assist in all of the ways that we'd like to. Our pockets just aren't deep enough, we're at our "number of pets" limit, we don't have the time due to commitments to our families, jobs, or the pugs we already have... For whatever reason, sometimes it just isn't possible. And that's where fundraisers come in!
Beginning tomorrow, Sept. 15, NIPRA will be holding its annual Fall Yankee Candle Fundraiser. All proceeds benefit NIPRA and will go directly toward helping with the rescue pugs. I love the Yankee candle fundraiser because these candles really sell themselves--they make great gifts, they're so wonderfully season-appropriate, and they smell FANTASTIC. (They also go a long way towards covering up the smell of a stinky pug...hehe.) Who doesn't love a Yankee candle?
If you know of anyone who would be interested in purchasing, or if you can think of someone to whom you owe a gift, please consider participating! All of the information is provided at the link below, and sales go up until October 1.
NIPRA 2010 Yankee Candle Fundraiser
Whether you purchase one candle or ten, all profit will go toward helping sweet pugs in need--just like my Natty girl once was. You can see the current list of sweet NIPRA fosters here. Won't you help NIPRA continue to do what it does best?
