all done...and the ten dollar challenge
If you're here for the Canon Rebel giveaway, please go to THIS POST to enter...
I was adding up the totals for donations for Albina today just now, and it's funny...I was hoping that we beat yesterday's total donations, which were $542...and today's were $543!! Hallelujah!
SO here's a little more math for you...
If you're new here, we are trying to get her grant fund to $5,000- because a generous anonymous family has agreed to matching donations dollar for dollar for Albina up to $5,000.
Tonight, just after midnight, she has $3,958 in her grant fund...so we only have a thousand to go, and this was only day two of the giveaway!
Here's what I'm thinking...
I have a little site meter on my blog that keeps track of how many page views and visits Lily's blog gets per day, as well as other fun statistics. Today there were 1,502 page views. And I realize that a lot of those may be repeat visits or people reading more page than one.
BUT think how easy it would be for Albina's grant to reach $5,000 if even one tenth of those visitors gave ten dollars each.
It's so easy to think our little gift doesn't make a difference. But I've done a few of these giveaways now, and for the most part they are financed by many people giving smaller amounts. Of course it is wonderful when those huge donations come in! But it really wouldn't be hard to raise a full grant for Albina if everyone who saw her beautiful little face just gave ten dollars.
And on top of helping Albina, you get a chance to win a pretty sweet camera!
Thank you so much to everyone who has helped spread the word for Albina this far- keep spreading it! I am amazed at how many people have fallen in love with this adorable little pixie like we have- I would not be surprised if a family came forward for her before this was all done.
And speaking of "all done"...guess who learned to sign that phrase???
Tell me this isn't the cutest stinking thing you've ever seen...
