Thank You Our Waldo Bungie!

10 Sep

We’re forgoing a new “Adoptable Pittie of the Week” to share some wonderful news with you. But what does Our Waldo Bungie have to do with it? Well, everything!

About a month ago, we entered a competition called Bloggers for Good, for which there was a grand prize of $500 cash prize for the blogger and $1000 for the charity of their choice, which for us, of course, is Bully Project. We fared pretty well (#5 out of 57 entries!), but alas, did not earn enough votes to win the whole shebang. But we had a back-up plan! When we noticed that our friend Emily had also entered the competition, we shot her a little email. Considering we were the only two “pit bull bloggers” in the competition, we agreed that we should have each other’s back – after all, our goals are pretty much the same.

So we formed an alliance came to a mutual agreement: if either one of us won, we would split our personal cash prize evenly in half. Well, wouldn’t you know it? Emily won! And we are so thrilled for her, and for the charity that she won $1000: Unleashed Pet Rescue of Mission, Kansas. They do amazing work in rescuing wonderful animals from high kill shelters in their local area.

And she sent us a big, ole check for $250! So what are we going to do with that money? We’re going to rent the perfect indoor space  for our next round of free training classes for pit bulls! More info on that coming later this week!

What is Emily doing with her share? A “Kibble for Comments” food drive for the shelter dogs of Unleashed Pet Rescue. So hurry on over to her Facebook page, “Like” it, and leave a comment so she has to give away all of her prize money in the form of dog food!

    Good news for all involved, and those whose lives will be changed by those classes in particular, and your good work in general!
