Shelters Win BIG!!! GLOGIRLY Giveaway Gala Results

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss!  Is today the day?

KATIE:  Yes, Waffles. Today's the day.

WAFFLES:  Do I get to announce all the winners?

KATIE:  Well considering you can't even COUNT the winners, reading all the names might be a challenge. How about we tell everyone a little bit about this special giveaway first. 

WAFFLES:  Ok, but I want to roll the drums too. Can I roll the drums? And announce the winners?


KATIE:  Waffles, there's more to this event than just reading off a list of winners and banging on your drum. But yes, you can help. As long as you promise not to mess up anyone's name. 

WAFFLES:  Ok Boss. No messes.

KATIE:  The GLOGIRLY Giveaway Gala started as a little idea way back in late December between me and Glogirly. We wanted to do something really FUN and really BIG that would not only help Glogirly get to the BlogPaws Conference, but would be something really special for our friends, readers and their favorite shelters. So we put our idea to paper (virtual paper) and sent it to our most favorite brands. 

At first we didn't know if anyone would want to join in. But that was ok because even if just one brand liked our idea, we'd be able to have a really cool giveaway and maybe even give something nice to a shelter. 

So we all crossed our paws.

WAFFLES:  I remember that! I crossed ALL my paws just like you told me to.

KATIE:  Well we heard back from one brand, then another, then another.

WAFFLES:  And another and another and another too!

KATIE:  Seven of our favorite brands that we've featured here before, seven who make the wonderful products we use and enjoy every single day, said YES! And when they told us about the prizes they wanted to donate...well, I'm pretty sure Glogirly got all leaky-eyed.

WAFFLES:  Is this where I roll the drums around?

KATIE:  Go ahead, Waffles. Roll all you want.

My shelter SweetPea friends of Rutland animal shelter was so happy to hear they were going to be the recipients.
