Paws with a Cause Fundraiser Day #1

Hi everyone, for the first day of the Paws with a Cause funraiser and giveaway I will be sharing with you a little something about all my pets. I have 7 awesome authors that will be participating throughout the week as well. Some of them offering great prizes as giveaways besides the main giveaway that we're hosting. More about the main giveaway below.

Trey is a long haired chiuahua. He got his name because his birthday is 3/3/03. Trey is definitely a mommies boy and follows me everywhere I go. He can be super sweet but he can also bite strangers. He is the king of the house where the pets are concerned. He puts all of them in their place. hehe....

Sammy is a golden retreiver and is the sweetest dog you will ever meet. There is nothing you could do to him that would make him even think about biting you. He loves to play with the kids especially on the trampoline. Sammy also loves to go out on the boat and swim.

This is Babes or Baby Kitty. She is such a sweet cat. Once again there is nothing you can do to piss her off. When she was a baby she got hit by a car and fractured her jaw so I had to feed her watered down can food through a syringe. But she lived through it.

Meet Shadow. He is our bad boy. You can probably guess how he got his name. He is very temperamental and can snap at you in a minute if your doing something he doesn't like. He hates to be inside the house and will drive us crazy to let him outside. Shadow is our oldest pet at 16.

Hello Everyone! We have a total of 59 blogs that have gotten together to help raise money for a great cause. There are going to be some awesome prizes up for grabs for people that donate money to the cause. Here is a little about the company that we are raising the money for:

Paws With A Cause® enhances the independence and quality of life for people with disabilities nationally through custom-trained Assistance Dogs. 

PAWS® increases awareness of the rights and roles of Assistance Dog teams through education and advocacy.  Founded in 1979, Paws With A Cause is dedicated to helping its clients who are challenged by many disabilities, such as Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Seizure Disorders, and Hearing Disorders to name just some.  Each of our dogs are trained to meet the specific needs of our clients. Tasks may include opening and closing doors, picking up objects, pulling a wheelchair, turning lights on and off, and alerting a person to particular sounds like a telephone, doorbell, smoke detector and many others. Our dogs change lives by enhancing the independence of our clients. By just opening a door, a dog opens up the world for a person with a disability and your donations will go to making that happen.  PAWS thanks you so much for your donation and allowing us to open more doors.

How to donate:
2. Click on "Make a Donation"
3. Enter a amount you wish to donate. Everibbon will add a small fee to your donation for processing. My fee for donating $5.00 was .49 cents. So keep this in mind when deciding your donation amount. You will receive 1 entry into the giveaway for every $1 you donate. 
4. In the box that says "on the behalf of" please put your name. This is the name that will be listed on the everibbon website so put a name you do not mind being visible to everyone. Do not check the box to make a anonymous donation because I will not be able to track your donation to enter you into the giveaways.
5. Next it will ask you for your credit or debit card information.
6. Then it will ask for your email address to send you a receipt. This is so that you can submit it for tax purposes.
7. Ta Da! Your all done making your donation. Now you need to contact Danielle to enter the giveaway.
8. Please email Danielle at with the name you used to donate your money. For example the name I used to donate on behalf of was Romance Book Junkies. Do not send me your name off your credit or debit card because I will not be able to see this. Along with the name you used please tell me how much you donated and if you live in the US or are International.
9. Your all done. Thank you for donating!

Warning: Do not try to email Danielle the name and donation amount of another person that is not yourself. If Danielle recieves more than one email with the same persons name and donation amount she will have to ask for your copy of the receipt from everibbon to verify that you are the correct winner. Thank you.

We will have 4 winners for the main giveaway.
We have 2 $65 gift certificates to any online book store.
Also we have a huge box of books and swag from Romance Book Junkies and Bitten by Paranormal Romance for US residents only.

Good luck to all and thank you for helping make this fundraiser a success.
