We’re pawticipating in Pet Blogs United’s Friendly Friday. To pawticipate, you just gotta grab the badge and then tell us abouts one of your furends that you want us all to meet.
Now you’re prolly all – Crazy Mayzie! It’s Thursday, not Friday! But I have a very special and oh-so-impawtant reason for introducing this furend to you today and not tomorrow.
Everybuddy, I’d like you to meet Kona! Isn’t she just Most Beautiful?
Her mom writes a blog about their life together called Running with Kona. Now, as you mighta guessed from the title, Kona and her mom like to go running every day. And they luvs it so much that Kona’s mom has decided that she’s gonna run in the NYC Marathon this weekend!
And not only that, she’s been lucky enough to get a spot on Fatty’s LIVESTRONG Team. Mr. Fatty is a cycling blogger who lost his wife last year because of that bad breast cancer and since then, he’s done lots of super wonderful stuff to raise money for the LIVESTRONG Foundation.
Anyways, Kona’s mom pledged to raise 3500 green papers for the LIVESTRONG Foundation. And she’s so, so, SO close. So far, she’s raised 3210 green papers! Isn’t that amazing? But she’s really, really trying hard to raise the rest of it by this weekend (which is why I’m telling you about her and Kona today). And I thought that maybe, since we all hates that bad cancer thing so much, we could help her along her way. As she put it on her bloggie yesterday, “No donation is too small and every dollar helps fund the cancer snubbing services that LIVESTRONG brings to cancer patients around the globe.”
If you’re able to help, you can go directly to her fundraising page by clicking here. Now, if you can’t help with green papers, that’s A-OK! But I sure hope you’ll take a second to go over to her bloggie and tell her that you think what she’s doing is a Most Wonderful thing! I know she (and Kona!) would appreciate it lots!
