February 3, 2010 – Smutty Shout-Outs
The BC SPCA has launched a month-long, provincewide “Loonies for Love” campaign to help homeless and neglected animals in local communities. Specially branded coin boxes will be available at all BC SPCA locations as well as at some partnering businesses. And visitors who come to local SPCA branches will be able to purchase “loonie hearts” for $1 and have them displayed at the branch for the month. Money collected at local branches stays in those communities, supporting the SPCA’s work in areas ranging from cruelty investigations and emergency rescue to low-cost spay/neuter and cruelty prevention programs. The BC SPCA cares for nearly 37,000 animals a year around the province.
In Vancouver, a “Loonies for Love” team will be at the Vancouver Art Gallery on Friday, Feb. 5 from noon till 2 p.m. collecting loonies. Visit spca.bc.ca and click on your local branch to find out more.
2010 marks the 20th Anniversary of Jeans Day in support of the BC Children’s Hospital. Buy a button, show up to work in jeans, and help support the only tertiary child health-care facility in BC that provides care tailored to the specific needs of children. Accessible to over one million children in the province, BC Children’s serves the largest population of children than any other children’s hospital in Canada. The Hospital cares for approximately 80,000 kids each year. To date, over $10.5 million has been raised from Jeans Day in support of BC Children’s Hospital. Please engage everyone in the workplace, and I dare you, I DARE you to participate and show up on Jeans Day in a Jessica Simpson inspired denim High Waisted Horror. Send me the photo afters with proof that you were actually at work and that people saw you and I will personally fund your brand new pair of jeans, any jeans, any price, of your choice.
Happy 25th Birthday Heiðdís in Iceland! Very excited for you about the new job and the new motto. I will not judge you for Chris Martin. Am attaching some photos for your enjoyment. Thank you so much for reading my dirty little blog all the way from your “godforsaken island”. Enjoy 25. You’re in for a really, really amazing year.
