Leap Day is apparently a day that crops up once every four years when we get an extra day - February 29. I am told that ladies get the chance to propose.
Well, I proposed an idea to the Lady Of The House instead. She was looking for inspiration for a small giveaway to do on the February newsletter for her Lost and Fond email newsletter.
I said 'Why don't you just let people nominate a pet charity they would like to receive a little donation of £15 from Lost and Fond?' The great thing about this is that all my friends outside the UK can join in as well. As long as the charity or rescue has a website we can have a look at so we can arrange to send them the money if their nominator is drawn out as the winner.
She said 'yes', so the newsletter will go out tomorrow night (Wednesday February 29) with full details, so if you sign up asap (it's really quick and only takes a minute on this page) you can be in with a chance of winning a small donation for your favourite good cause. We'll draw one winner at random from the nominations we receive by the closing date of March 11. If you read this post when Leap Day has been and gone you can still take part as long as you sign up to the newsletter before March 11. The LOTH will keep an eye on new registrations and send you an email telling you how to nominate your favourite good cause.
- The Lady Of The House runs Lost and Fond as a volunteer in her spare time. She does it to raise awareness of pet charities and to give people somewhere to create free online memorials for the pets they have lost in the past. Anyone can register free on the site and log in to create their own pet memorial page online or you can email the LOTH and she'll create one for you from words and pictures you supply.
