High Five and Attaboys&girls

March 1, 2011

If you’ve not visited The Daily Corgi lately, you have missed the most amazing outpouring of generosity.  Laurie rounded up 35 prize packages, and then asked her readers to chip in $5 (or more) to support research for degenerative myelopathy in corgis.  Everyone who contributed was entered in the lottery for the prize packages.  The Drive for $5 ends at midnight tonight with a total of at least $3500 raised for DM research.  The money will go to the Canine Health Foundation.  Because of the size of the contribution, it will be designated for the Sponsor Fund to be combined with contributions from Breed Clubs and Foundations to support a DM research grant.  Grant proposals were also due today — a perfect day to finish up the Drive.

One person with a great idea is able to help generous people channel donations — large or small.  I am so proud of Laurie and so proud to be part of the corgi community.

    Thanks, Penni!

    It was truly an amazing outpouring from Corgi People. In just 16 days, contributions exceeded $3,500.

    There is power in a good idea, and even more power in numbers. Over 200 people gave to the cause.

    Someday we will OVERCOME DM!!!
