The Great Raffle Giveaway

We all love and appreciate the Cat Blogoshpere and now it is time to show them just how much! To close out our month long Italian celebration, we are hosting "The Great Raffle Giveaway".

Here is how it will work:

-Starting today and ending on the last day of the month, anyone who makes a donation to the Cat Blogosphere will be entered in the raffle.

-Names of the winners will be announced on Sunday, December 2ND.

-Keep in mind that no donation is too small.

-Be sure to include these three things: your name (pet and human), what kind of pet you are (cat, dog, ect.) and email address so we can contact you if you win. Mom Robyn will be keeping track of the donors and will only forward us the names for the drawing. Be sure you include your name and email address when donating so we can add you to the drawing!

-The number of winners will depend on the number of prizes donated (we already have a few).

Click here to make a donation with your credit card via paypal (you do not have to have a paypal account to use paypal, no donation is too small) or to find out how to send a check, click here to email Mom Robyn.

The folks at the Catblogshere provide us with a great service, it is time for us to step up to the plate and help them out. Just think, it everyone gives just a little it can really add up.

Looking for another way to contribute to the raffle?

We are looking for prizes to add to the raffle. If anyone would like to donate a small prize, it would be much appreciated. We will have a list of prize donors and their blogs, so everyone will get credit for their help. If you wish to donate a small prize, please email us at catnapsinitaly@yahoo.com or you can leave a comment on this post.

The prizes need not be big and all we ask is if the prize donor can mail the prize to the winner (rather than shipping the prize to Italy and then having us ship it back to the winner).

If everyone helps just a little, we are sure that this raffle can be a lot of fun and also a great way to help our friends out at the Cat Blogosphere!


LET THE RAFFLE BEGIN!

Hmmmm, wonder if I can have as good of luck as mum had this weekend. I will need to steal her plastic thing and enter.

The Colts won again, Packers too. The two teams both play again on Thanksgiving (Thursday), but not against each other.

Maybe your American grandmother can find you a nice cat bed for Christmas.

Scarface Momo has directed her contact in the Midwest to send a check to Mom Robyn. If he doesn't comply pronto we would send the Kitty Mafia to deal with him!

Cat Naps in Italy said...

Dragonheart- Grazie. We just wanted to help out in some way and this could be a good idea.

Sassy- Thanks for your help. Let us know what you want to donate and we will get posted on our blog.

Derby- Hope you have as much as your Mom did! You have NO IDEA how much we all wish we could be in America for Thanksgiving dinner and the Colts game. American holidays make us so homesick. Maybe Opus and I could join you for a virtual Thanksgiving dinner and then we could watch the Colts game together. What do you think?

HOMBC- Thanks for the link. We looked everywhere and couldn't find it. Will get that up.

Karl- Awww shucks (blushing). Just trying to lend a helping paw to some friends.

Cheysuli- Thanks! Let us know so and we will get it posted!

Queen Snickers- Oh thank you so much!

Asta- We think it is going to be a lot of fun. We would like to have some doggy prizes too if you wanna be in the raffle.

Dasiy- Grazie (blushing again).

Momo- We hope it is a lot of fun.

Ruis- Thank you for your donation. The prize can be something small, like a sack of mice or something. We just thought it would be easier to have the donors send the prize to the winners rather than ship the prize here. Thanks for your support.

Capt. Jacke, Dante and Mickey- Grazie. But we were cool before, right?

Momo- No one wants to mess with the Kitty mafia! Good job!

ML- Oh thank you so much. We need all the help we can get!

Miss Peach- Oh thank you so much! We will be sure to get your name into the raffle as well!

Thanks to all who have shown interest in the raffle and to those of you who are interested in donating. We hope this will be a bunch of fun as well as to raise a couple of bucks for the Cat Blogosphere!

Love,
Opus and Roscoe
