Some of you may remember Cappy (some infamously):
Cappy is my mom's long-haired dachshund, which she got at the SPCA a few months ago. He was at Barkworld in October, he now has his own blog, and now he's in a photo contest!
Cappy is in Tampa Bay's Cutest Pet Photo Contest, by the Tampa Bay Times. The proceeds from this contest will benefit Newspaper in Education, a program that provides class sets of newspapers to schools all over the Tampa Bay area (Citrus, Hernando, Pasco, Pinellas, Hillsborough and Manatee counties). They also help promote literacy.
Please vote for Cappy. The
voting period opens Wednesday at midnight, and closes Friday, November
30 at noon. Each vote costs $1, and you have to buy a minimum of five
votes. But again, the money will go to a great cause.
My mom and dad use the newspapers to help teach about current events in their classrooms in Pasco County.
I mean, look at him. He looks so sad with those big eyes, as if to say "please, help my Mommy and Daddy keep newspapers in their classroom."
To vote for Cappy, go here and search for him by name.
UPDATE: I realize some people are uncomfortable registering and voting online. I have a PayPal account, so if you want you can send the money to me and I can vote for you. If you are interested, email me.
UPDATE 2: I also realize the contest process is convoluted (it's run by teachers and journalists, what do you expect?). Once you buy your votes, you have to then ACTUALLY vote for the pet you want. It's very confusing. Thanks for your patience.
