Vote for Rikki's Refuge Rikkis Refuge of VA

Can you think of ANYBODY you know who isn't voting? Make it a challenge
this weekend to convince them to help us too!!! Together we can make
the world a wonderful place! I just know we can. But we all have to
work together on it!!!

This October is very very special!!! It has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and
5 Sundays, all in one month. It happens once in 823 years. How cool is

Amy Sommer has some great news here!!!
Purchase Tupperware and support Rikkis Refuge!

As many of you know, I volunteer for an animal sanctuary in Orange Co.,
Virginia named Rikkis Refuge. What makes this place special is that
they do not discriminate, they take in any and all creatures who would
otherwise be left for dead or euthanized. It is basically a big farm
with a very limited staff who take care of over 1200 animals. Needless
to say, it can be very expensive to feed, house and provide medical
treatment for that many animals, many of which are exotics.

I recently started an on-line fundraiser for Rikkis Refuge, by selling
Tupperware. No, I'm not a Tupperware lady, this is just an on-line
fundraiser in which Rikkis Refuge gets 40% of anything that is sold from
their special fundraising catalog that has over about 100 items in it.
Now, we all know that Tupperware is the real deal - it lasts forever and
doesn't melt in your dishwasher; anyone who has been to my mom's house
may know that she still has some from 1973 and it works fine!!! Please
take a look at the on-line Tupperware catalog and order at your leisure.
I purchased a few microwave soup bowls to use for lunch - they don't
melt in the microwave like the cheaper plastics do. I also got several
pieces as a house warming gift for a friend.

You can access the catalog by clicking here!twx$eparty_ctl.p_guest_welcome?pv_eparty=155b7bf84aea3c26c5d3792cc23962e5

If you would like more information about Rikkis Refuge please go to
their web site at and to see any upcoming programs
/ open houses (something special coming up on 10/23). They have three
new baby pot belly pigs that are too cute for words!

Or any friends who would like to buy some new Tupperware!
Thanks, Amy
