Mai pals as you know we usually have a draw for the monthly PawPawty charity , and I just want to say thank you all so much for the nominations. You can see them all on the pawpawty blog comments.
However following the terrible news about the earthquake in Haiti I have had a number of requests to help out the animals in Haiti in some way. So this month’s Pawty will be helping the The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) who have formally agreed to head up a coalition of groups to address the needs of animals in Haiti following the earthquake that devastated the country.
You can read more about the work they will be undertaking on the IFWA site and also on the WSPA disasters blog. I have set up two widgets, one for UK donations and one for USA donations, that way if you are a tax payer in your individual country the charity will get extra tax benefit from your donations. The donation widgets are on this page on the right and also on the PawPawty Site.
I have set the limit at $500 and £500 but I am sure that we will be able to raise more than this to help the animal relief organisations working together in Haiti.
