Good Morning Good News May 4, 2015: THE COMMUNITY GIVE

"For it is in giving, that we receive"  ~St Francis of Assisi

This Tuesday, May 5, for 24 hours, Rikki's Refuge is participating in THE COMMUNITY GIVE, a 1-day regional fundraiser!  On this day, from 12:00am until 11:59pm, go to our Giving Day profile at to donate for the animals of Rikki's!! (you can also click on any of the Community Give photos in this blog to take you directly to the donation page!)
Donations must be made through this website on May 5 to count for Rikki's Refuge!  Donations to Rikki's Refuge directly will not count towards this initiative on this day.  The top three organizations that raise the most money on Give Day will receive the following grand prizes:  1st Place: $10,000, 2nd Place: $5,000, and 3rd Place: $2,500.  In addition to the grand prizes, one of the participating non-profits will be drawn at random each hour during the 24-hour event to receive additional monetary prizes!  To qualify for an hourly drawing, a non-profit must receive at least one gift of $25 or more during the hour.
Will you help us on Tuesday??  The more donors and money we raise, the greater our chances of winning some awesome additional prizes and every penny will benefit the 1300 amazing animals at Rikki's Refuge.  Will you share this information and our Giving Day profile with all your friends and families?

Oh, and do you know what TODAY is??? It is Star Wars Day!  "May the Fourth Be With You!"  Yoda Opie says help us tomorrow and "Awesome you are and thankful I am."  lol
So now you know my secret - I am not only the RULER OF RIKKI'S REFUGE, but I am Yoda - heck, I can be anybody I want to be!!  hee hee

I hope I can count on all of you tomorrow for The Community Give.  It is my first big fundraiser for my new term as RULER OF RIKKI'S REFUGE and I want it to be a good one!

Oh my gosh, I almost forgot to mention - the SHELTER CHALLENGE IS BACK!  Please VOTE and SHARE for Rikki's Refuge every day!! This is so important and another awesome way that you can help me be the Best Ruler of Rikki's Refuge EVER.... Click on the photo and it will take you to the voting page:

Love you, 

Opie (Reigning Rikki's Ruler)
