Contest & challenge - Help the animals

Cindy at Contests and Challenges blog read my previous post about the Animal Rescue site needing help, and she has started a contest to band all of us animal loving bloggers together for the sake of the animals. Even if you've had this widget on your site for a long time, you can still enter the contest. All you have to do is leave a comment on Cindy's site. Here are the details of the contest from her site. If you enter the contest, please be sure you leave the comments on her site, as she is running the contest:

"Because I feel that this is an important cause this will be the first contest I sponsor. Since it's my first and because I don't have any experience hosting contests, it's going to be a real easy one.

First, a brief introduction and then we'll get to the contest part.

On a visit to Wild Cats Three this morning, I found the following post:I received word from a friend of mine who is a foster mom for Lil Paws Rescue that the Animal Rescue site is experiencing a low number of clicks, and therefore is not getting enough sponsor money to buy food for the rescued animals.

If you have a website or blog, and would like to help the Animal Rescue Site by displaying their clickable widget on your site, click here. Once on the page, look in the upper left corner for "Link to us." That will take you to the page where you can choose your widget, and get the code to paste into your template.

This is such a worthy cause. It costs you nothing, but can go a long way in helping feed the rescued animals until a permanent home is found for them.

I'd like to see this widget on thousands of blogs and web pages all over the internet so here are the guidelines for this contest.

1.) Get the widget and place it on your blog or web page. (the instructions for doing this are in the italicized portion above)

2.) Leave a comment on this post linking to your post and telling me that you've placed the widget on your page. Please, and this is important: include your e-mail address in your comment so I can reach you if you're the winner.

3.) This one's optional, but it would help spread the word. Write a post like the one I copied (above) from Wild Cats Three and include the appropriate links.

That's it. A winner will be selected randomly thirty one days from today (February 29th)from the list of comments.

The prize is twofold.First the winner will receive this pin.

It's all gold in color (camera made shadows) and that's a real pearl in its' paws.

and second, a donation of $20 worth of pet food will be given to our local chapter of the SPCA in the winners' name.

You may comment once daily throughout the contest for multiple chances at winning."
