Note: Grammy decided to let us do this because it helps save children’s lives…
Grammy’s friend, Angela from West Virginia Treasures contacted Grammy and asked her to become part of the Hershey’s Blog Hop to benefit the Children's Miracle Network. Hershey’s has partnered with them for over 20 years, and this is THIS year’s fundraiser, and the best part is that it doesn’t cost you a thing!
Angela contacted Grammy, but when we heard about it, we figured that we love kids too, and would love to get the Dog Blog world in on this! After all, most of us really love kids, and even if we have had some of them pull our ears, etc., we should remember that our master’s were once kids, and they grew up to love us because they learned to love from others and this gives us a chance to love these sick kids!!!
Children’s Miracle Network is a non-profit organization that raises funds for more than 170 children’s hospitals (those are vets for kids!) Countless individuals, organizations and media partners unite with Children’s Miracle Network hospitals to help sick and injured kids in local communities. Donations to CMN create miracles by funding medical care, research and education that saves and improves the lives of 17 million children each year.
Hershey's will donate $10 to the Network for each blog post -- and they'll keep on donating as long as the blog-hopping continues, up to $5,000 to benefit kids. What a wonderful thing for Hershey's to do for the children, and this gives us Corgis and our Dog Blogging friends a chance to help these sick kids, too! Is that cool or what! I don’t think anyone will gripe if we dogs get VIRTUAL chocolate, even if we can’t have much of the real stuff. I also know that Grammy loves the real stuff, and plans to buy some for her grandkids, and now she plans to make it Hersheys.
