As I grabbed yet another anthology, this one for Halloween, I thought about how many box sets and anthologies I’ve been reading recently. Actually it started back earlier this year when a group of authors got together to create an anthology called “Cowboys for a Cause.” Sold for $0.99 (I think), all the stories were about cowboys and the proceeds were donated to a charity to help folks affected by the pandemic. Sadly this anthology seems to no longer be available. So let me just urge you to take advantage of these bargains while there available.
Weekly Cup of Coco!
We knew immediately after bringing Coco home she had a problem with fleas. Today at the vet’s we discovered just how much a problem she had. She was so anemic that they weren’t able to give her a rabies shot. They did give her one of those tablets that works for 24 hrs to kill fleas. This was basically an emergency measure to start getting the fleas off her. I’d been giving her flea baths, but this would work faster. They also did a heart worm test on her, negative thank God! So the vet recommended a combination of heart worm medicine and flea killer. Hopefully we should be seeing results soon. We also okay the vet doing lab tests to see what else might be wrong with her. We want to do everything we can to get and keep her healthy!
Donations for Nonprofit Organizations
While talking to the vet, they mentioned that they were a nonprofit group. The prices were very reasonable and I definitely wanted to try to help them. Turns out Amazon has a program called “Amazon Smile” that makes donations to charities and nonprofit organizations based on eligible purchases. Amazon donated 0.5% of the price to the group, with no cost to you. A quick search told me that “Operation Snip” is listed and we could start sending some funds their way.
So, if you shop on Amazon frequently, take a look and see if this is something you could do.
