Adopting Miku was the best decision I ever made. Well, it was the best decision my mom made, since she was the one who adopted her for me. I can't imagine life without my little pup; she's my best friend and the tiny little love of my life. All of my little critters were adopted or rescued straight from the streets, so you can imagine with adoption and rescue initiatives are extremely important to me. That's why I am organizing a fundraiser with my friends at Bollare for Adopt NY, a wonderful team of animal rescue groups who are working to make New York no kill (you can read more about them here). They focus on pulling animals out of kill shelters and placing them in foster and forever homes, and after Hurricane Sandy, there are more displaced animals than ever. We want to help them fix that!
I'll have more info and a flyer for you early next week, but in the meantime, please save the date for December 10th, 7-9 PM. We'll be hosting a blogger closet sale, auction of goods donated by designers and influencers (we have some *amazing* donations up for grabs), and raffle at Bollare (135 fifth avenue, 8th floor). It's open to the public, so please spread the word and help us raise some money and save some furry lives!
p.s. If you or your company is interested in donating an item or sponsoring the event, please email me or leave a comment. The more, the merrier!
