Two words, actually:
World’s Best Cat Litter gamely sponsored what I imagine is going to be the one post people remember a year from now. Thank you, Drew and the whole WBCL team!
An ‘Above and Beyond’ thank you goes to Jen Cleere at Fetching Tags for not only donating multiple tags to my blogathon, AND a guest post, she then ran her own blogathon while giving away oodles of tags on her own site! She was like the Ultra Blogathoner!
The ‘gifts that keep on giving’ thanks goes to these sponsors who made additional generous donations beyond their giveaway:
Calming Collars has agreed make a $5 donation to “the puppy for Bradyn” for each Calming Collar purchase this month that mentions Dr. V or Pawcurious or even Blogathon2010 (there is a “how we heard about you” box in checkout).
Dr. Amy Valentine of Dog Angel Jewelry donated an additional $350 to Bradyn’s fund which, in the last seconds of the blogathon, brought the total up to my fundraising goal of meeting or exceeding last year’s total. If that isn’t worth a like on Facebook, I don’t know what is! 😉
The Honest Kitchen has designated Bradyn’s fund the December charity of the month, and a portion of all their December sales will be donated to his fund!
All of the sponsors were so very generous with their products and willingness to help out however they could.
Biscuits by Lambchop’s Annette Frey ran 4 giveaway scavenger hunts across 5 websites, donating the time and energy to write all of the questions and keep track of all the participants as they raced to win on Twitter. There wasn’t a time I logged on during the blogathon that she wasn’t there too, Tweeting and cheering us on and being a tremendous supporter.
The team at Veterinary Wisdom contributed not one, but THREE guest posts in addition to the Clay Paws giveaway.
Smiling Frog Pets has already thrown in their name to be a part of Blogathon 2011!
When things are nasty and dastardly out there, I remember people like all of you and then it’s not so bad.
