Help Homeless Pets In Austin

Goals reached!

With your help, both of the goals below were reached. Voting is underway until 9pm Central time on Monday, October 5th. I'll announce the voting results after that time!

Fund drive

I am trying to raise $1000 for Austin Pets Alive, a nonprofit group dedicated to saving the lives of pets in Austin. You can visit their web page for more information on the group, but the bottom line is that they badly need money to continue their important work. I donate to them regularly, but for their Save A Life Drive I've committed to raising $1000 for them by October 3. If you follow me on Twitter or are my friend on Facebook, no doubt you've seen me asking for donations.

The first $500

Last week we hit the $500 mark. I vowed that if we hit this target, I would do one of the following:

Everyone who donates $5 or more will receive one vote to determine which of these I do. If the bleaching option wins, then the donors will also receive one vote to determine what color I should dye it (or if I should just leave it bleached).

Anyone who donates $25 or more will get two votes, $50 or more will get three votes, and so on. The voting will take place after October 3rd.

The next $500

Initially the donation drive was scheduled to end on September 25th. However, APA has extended the drive to October 3rd. Because of this, I've decided to extend my personal fund drive, to see how much more money we can raise.

If you didn't get a chance to donate before, you can still donate and will thus be able to vote in the $500 challenge. To be clear, all donations received by the end of the fund drive on October 3rd will get you the ability to vote.

But there's more! If the $1000 target is reached, I will get a tattoo! All donors (following the same rules as above) can vote to determine what I get from the following list:

If you have any ideas to add to the above list, let me know!

Even $5 will help save the life of an animal in need, and it will get me one step closer to public humiliation!
