Supporting local business is really important to me. They make each city and town special and one of a kind. When we have cute little coffee shops, boutiques, and do good businesses sprinkled in within the bigger chains, it makes a community unique. Every town has its “must visit” locations, and most of the time these are local businesses.
When I made my goals for February, I set a theme of love. I did this as a way to bring awareness to being kind and loving to all things around you. This includes yourself and animals. Today I want to share some love on a local non-profit that is near and dear to my heart. The Tompkins County SPCA. I grew up always having a pet and come from a family of animal lovers. I just recently adopted Grace from the shelter, a cute and spunky 6 month old kitten.
Grace came into the shelter as a stray with some tummy issues. She was very small for her age and very much underweight. The Tompkins County SPCA got her healthy and she now spends her days spoiled and with more food than any little kitty should need. She is happy and it makes me happy knowing we have such a wonderful shelter who is willing to take in kitties like Grace and get them adopted into a nice home.
The Tompkins County SPCA was the first No-Kill shelter in the United States. No animal is ever turned away due to no room. Because they are able to do this, they need the funds to keep the shelter running and productive. I wanted to share with you their Valentine’s Day fundraiser.
Lover’s Loot is the gift that keeps on giving. For $50 you can purchase a sleek and modern travel mug packed with Life’s So Sweet chocolate and a slip of paper with a number. Each number corresponds with a number between 1 and 225. Each number has a prize attached to it which will be revealed on Valentine’s Day on the Tompkins County SPCA’s website. Each prize is guaranteed to be worth $25 or more.
Each prize was generously donated from both local and national businesses. You can expect to see gift cards from places like HarmonyMassage, Gimme Coffee, Firelight Camps, <---(Glamping!) Rasa Spa, Target, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, and many more! You can even win a lunch with Ithaca mayor Svante Myrick! Swoon!
If you are local to the area you can pick up your mugs from Both SPCA locations (Ithaca Mall and Hanshaw Rd), Rasa Spa, 15 Steps, and The Ithaca Coffee Company.
If you are not local and want to make a generous donation I will personally ship you your mug and prize the week following Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day is only 6 days away.. Hurry and get this unique gift for your sweetie before they are all gone!
