Your generosity in giving what you can, when you can, has been nothing short of amazing. There is power in our numbers!
I was looking back this morning at all the amazing things that have happened since I started The Daily Corgi in July of last year, and the thing that struck me most was how NONE of it would have happened without the truly special community of people I am grateful to call my readers.
* In May of this year, dozens of artists and artistans donated over $1,000 worth of fantastic prizes in The Daily Corgi’s Great Corgilicious Giveaway. There were so many beautiful items … you can still click the link and explore all the Corgi-themed goodies these folks make and sell. Lots of lovely gifties, for yourself or a Corgi lover in your life.
* Also in May, the readership chipped in to raise $2,000 so that Pumpkin of New Jersey could get the veterinary care he needed and stay at home with his Mom, where he belongs.
* In June, you donated several hundred dollars (in a week’s time!) to help me purchase a new computer to replace my dying one, so that I could continue doing The Daily Corgi. I will be forever grateful — and amazed — at that. (Nobody can believe it when I tell them … until they see the computer!)
* Between April and today, you have given over $1,000 for CorgiAid, in the form of entry fees (and some extra cherry-on-the-top giving) for placement of photos in The 2011 Daily Corgi Calendar.
As important to me as any of this is the fantastic enthusiasm and support you’ve shown for my efforts. I wouldn’t still be here doing this if I didn’t know there were so many supportive people enjoying what I do and letting me know that it brings some extra sunshine into their lives everyday.
The Daily Corgi may be “just me”, writing and producing the whole kit and kaboodle, but it is far more than just me making it what it is — and whatever else it may grow into — in the months and years ahead.
I want to thank YOU and your Corgis and your Corgi-powered, positive attitude, and the stories and photos you provide. I am privileged to “meet” new Corgis and their people everyday. It touches me deeply, to see again and again how much people care about their Corgis and absolutely know that their lives wouldn’t be half as good without them. They are miracles, gifts, and blessings in fur.
To know that I’ve facilitated giving for Corgis in need — and contributed in any way to the rescue of these special dogs — is a source of genuine satisfaction. Simply put, I love dogs and always will.
Most of all, I heart Corgis.
And always will.
Boomie, whatta face!
