The final postcard tally is IN! 3,404 postcards poured into The Pet Postcard Project in the months of September and October, 2010, for the Freekibble/Halo 25,000 Meals of Halo Spot's Stew Campaign to benefit 4 shelters and feed hundreds of homeless pets!
The goal was 4000 postcards, but even though we fell just short of that, Freekibble and Halo are generously donating the food anyway! They are my heros, along with all of you who used your creativity, heart, and soul to make postcards and network the campaign. Congrats to all of us!
The recipient of the extra 5000 meals to their shelter is "Team Agility Animals Rule." They brought in 1363 amazing cards!
Now I've got to SCAN all of your fabulous cards all by myself! Whew! But it's worth every second because it gives me the privilege of helping to feed homeless animals -- and the privilege of seeing all of your beautiful pets on all of those beautiful cards.
COMPLETED: In the months of September and October, 2010, Freekibble.com, in conjunction with Halo Purely for Pets, has generously pledged 25,000 meals of Halo Spot's Stew to four animal shelters through The Pet Postcard Project! That's roughly 6250 pounds of pet food -- more than 3 TONS and over $12,000 worth of food!
For this 2-month campaign, the postcard goal is 4000 cards. There are four teams of Spokesdogs and Spokescats, each spearheading the campaign to earn Halo's Spot's Stew for a different shelter.
Each team has 2 months to bring in 1000 cards, and the team who brings in the most cards at the end of October, 2010, will get an additional 5000 meals for their shelter. Thank you Freekibble.com and Halo!
