What a fun idea to raise money for shelters! Starting today, an organization called Be the Change for Pets is launching the world's FIRST virtual garage sale to help pets. They're calling it the "Sell Your Stuff, Save a Life" challenge and encouraging pet bloggers and pet lovers the world over to sell stuff they no longer want or need from their own homes now through May 25th to benefit their favorite local shelters or rescue groups.
They're asking everyone to sell stuff they don't want anymore on eBay (or wherever!) and commit to donate what they earn to their favorite local shelter! (p.s. We would love to be your beneficiary!)
It's a great chance to sell stuff that's no longer needed and benefit shelter animals. You can also help our shelter animals all year long by donating your great stuff to our Thrift & Gift Shop at 5320 Arapahoe Avenue in Boulder, buying items at our Thrift Shop or buying items we have for sale on our eBay site: http://myworld.ebay.com/humanesocietyofbouldervalley/ (new items being added May 21.)
If you decide to participate in this world's first virtual garage sale and post a blog about it, here's the link to share the items you're selling to help spread the word! There's also a Linky for all the blogs participating to list themselves! (And simple instructions on how to participate!) http://www.blogpawsbethechange.com/rummage-sale-listings.html
Be the Change for Pets is a movement created by the passionate BlogPaws community. It represents the collective actions of members of the online pet community determined to make a difference in the lives of pets.
