A Holiday Blogging Event for Animals in Need

We here at Two Little Cavaliers have been thinking long and hard about what to do for the Holidays that would be different and fun. Something that would benefit the blogging community and the animals we all care so much about. I know you have all seen the blogging events where bloggers get together and offer cash prize to the winner of a Giveaway for liking them on Facebook or following them on Twitter. Well this event is going to be very similar only the cash prize will be split between the winner and a animal charity of their choice (charity must be a 501c3 and have a track record of saving animals) be it a local shelter, canine cancer, a service dog organization, or even a wildlife preservation organization.

Bloggers can sign up to promote their Facebook Fan Pages, Twitter links, and their Google+ pages for just $10 for all 3 links. The $10 will be split in the following way $6 to the winner’s charity and $4 towards the winner’s cash prize. Instead of having you transfer the payment to my Paypal account I have set up a chip in widget this way we can all see how much money has been collected. Payment MUST be made in US dollars in the full amount of $10. We are aiming for at least 35 blogs to participate in this event all promoting and cross promoting the event and giveaway for the most exposure for everyone.

Don’t worry people will not need to follow 35 blogger 3 separate ways all at once in order to be eligible to win. During the course of the two weeks you will put up three separate posts all of which you will receive the html code for in advance. The winner will be chosen from the 3 Raffelcopter widgets via random.org. Since I am the one who will be in charge of contacting the winner all participating bloggers will be eligible to enter to win the giveaway.

We hope you will sign up to participate in this event. This is a great way to give back to animals in need and promote your blogs and other social media accounts in the process!

The not so fine print:

There is no admin fee for this event but we would like your help in promoting this event. Therefore we have decided that the person who sends us the most participating bloggers will receive a $15 gift card to Amazon, Petco, or Petsmart from us. All you need to do is write a blog post telling your readers about the event. Remember the more people that spread the word about the event the more participation there will be.

You can contribute to the chip-in even if you are not participating in the event. Only the money from Bloggers will be added to the cash prize for the winner all donations will be given to the winner’s charity of choice.

The blogger who sends the most participating blogs to the event will be emailed on December 13th when we close registration.

PLEASE fill in the


so we can put all of the information together for the event. Filling out the form is the only way we will be able to keep track of you and your links.

Once you have filled out the form and submitted your money via chip (visible in our sidebar) in please add your name to the link list below.

  1. I think I did everything right… let me know if I didn’t do the Chip In part correctly though. 🙂

    • It looks like you did everything fine. Not sure why the chip-in widget is not showing the payment yet though. Will keep an eye on that during the day though.

  2. It just showed up – I was wondering that too, but I think it just took a few minutes to register.

  3. Hi,
    New follower from the blog hop please come follow me back 🙂

  4. What a fun idea! I am still getting the hang of this social media thing. I guess I may as well start now. If it helps the animals, it’s all worthwhile, right? Thanks for putting this together!

  5. Benny & Lily says

    This is a wonderful event. We are pawticipating in one

  6. Kolchak and Jodi says

    It won’t let me chip in from my iPad, but Kol’s Notes is in! I’ll do the Chip In as soon as I get home :0)

  7. What a fun idea. Thanks for setting it up.

    One quick note–I don’t have a G+ account and don’t plan to set one up any time soon. Instead, I put a link to my Squidoo lens. If that’s unacceptable, please just delete the link.

    Can’t wait to see who else ends up participating.

  8. What a great holiday event! I think I did it all correct, just let me know if I didn’t!!

  9. Love the idea and just signed up.
    Do you know how to make the badge smaller? My side bar never seems to accomodate badges. (My blogging “greeness” is showing – even after all of these years) 🙂

    • Let me resize it for you tomorrow. I will send it along with the code via email tomorrow. Too tired to play with code tonight.

  10. If you wouldn’t mind sending me the smaller badge for the sidebar, too, I would appreciate it!

  11. okie dokie, i filled out the form and sent in my payment. hope that all goes through all right. i’ll be badging up shortly…

  12. What a great event. Thanks for thinking it up. I’m in!

  13. I entered to help raise the funds, but I only have a blog, no facebook or twitter. That’s cool, right?

  14. Hi. I just wanted to let you know that the link above does not work. It puts the photo into the blog, but it doesn’t link to your site. My tech support husband had to rewrite it to get it to work. He says its missing the referrer, if that helps.

    Also, the instructions on how to enter the contest and linky list no longer appear on your blog post, but they did earlier, so no new bloggers will be able to figure out how to enter it…

    Hope all of that helps your contest run smoother! And thanks again for running it. 🙂

    • Thank you so much for alerting me to what happened. That is so weird I went in to edit one thing and everything got messed up 🙁 I think it is all fixed now.

  15. I think I messed up my form… and forgot to enter my Facebook fan page link. Can it be added? If so, it is: http://www.facebook.com/ForLoveofaDogJewelry (Note to self: when the dogs wake you at 2 AM, it doesn’t mean you should actually try to accomplish anything important!)

  16. So glad I heard about this from Amy at GoPetFriendly.com. Thanks for hosting, Felissa!

  17. Thank you, Felissa!

  18. I just made a chip in contribution only–please use all of it for the animals in need in memory of my cat Gremlin

    Really cool event! I just submitted the $10 via ChipIn and added our blog link (Probioticsmart.com Pet Health Blog) to the list, where do I submit our FB, twitter and Google+ links?


  20. I hope I filled everything out correctly and did the chipin right too. Let me know. Thanks! If you get a duplicate form sorry, my computer froze and I wasn’t sure if it went through.

  21. I could add my name to the list, but I couldn’t donate and include my links.

    • if you want to still participate please send money directly to my Paypal account as a GIFT Felissahadas{@}gmail.com The form to fill in your links should still be active.
