This year we are so excited to be joining Dr.V from Pawcurious in her 3rd Blogathon.
Blogathon is a 24 hour fundraiser where a group of bloggers stay awake for 24 hours and make one hour posts in support of their favorite causes of the year.
The posts are sometimes funny, sometimes sad, sometimes off the wall, and some are better than others, but they all are for a great cause.
In keeping with some of the recent events that have made headlines here in Ohio in regards to exotic animals I have chosen to support the Columbus Zoo who are working to preserve the lives of three leopards, two Celebes macaques, and one young grizzly bear that were transported to the zoo after the Zanesville incident, where dozens of exotic animals were set free by their owner on October 18, 2011. 49 animals were killed, including 18 Bengal tigers, 17 lions, 6 black bears, a pair of grizzlies, 3 mountain lions, two wolves and a baboon. Only 6 animals survived and the Columbus Zoo needs assistance in defraying the costs for the relocation, care, and rehabilitation for these animals.
So this weekend I will be blogging for them.
Now…. I am not a rock star like Dr.V, so I will most likely not be posting hourly but I will be blogging throughout the weekend with an undisclosed number of posts, so be ready to see a lot of me!
A few of the things that I have planned, is of course sharing more information about the Columbus Zoo, more about the Zanesville incident and other similar incidents involving exotic animals here in Ohio.
I will be interviewing Bobby on how he feels about people being able to own exotic animals, so you will get to see a 10 year old’s perspective on this issue.
Oh, and there will be some talk about zombies too, since the theme for this year is “Blogpocalypse“
If you would like to be apart of this Blogathon with me you can by contributing giveaway items, writing a guest post or both! The guest posts can be zombie related, pet related, or even better exotic animal related!
You will just have to let me know ASAP since this is all happening this weekend!
Email me firstname.lastname@example.org
The Blogpocalypse starts this Saturday at noon!
Don’t know what a Celebes macaques is? I will fill you in this weekend!
