Write a Post Help A Dog - Ends Tonight!




How you can help in 2011

Simply spread the word about Write a Post, Help a Dog 2011 and Pedigree will donate 20 pounds of food for each blog post.  If you don’t have a blog feel free to tweet about the campaign or share on Facebook so your friends who do blog can participate. All bloggers are welcome even if you do not generally talk about pets on your blog. Its all about using Social Media for Social Good.
Here’s how it works:
  • The Write a Post, Help a Dog program is aimed at raising awareness of the more then 4 million dogs that wind up in shelters and breed rescues each year. As well as to help get them all food (our goal is 10,000 lbs of food in the next two weeks) for the more than four million dogs that wind up in shelters and breed rescues each year.
  • For each blog post mentioning the Pedigree Foundation from now until midnight ET on September 3, Pedigree will donate 20 pounds of its new dry Pedigree recipe food for dogs — its best recipe ever — to a shelter, because every dog deserves leading nutrition.
  • Feel free to mae your post more visually appealing by using either or both of the two images seen in this post.
  • The Pedigree Foundation — a 501 (C)(3) nonprofit organization is committed to helping dogs by providing grants to shelters and rescues and encouraging dog adoption. This year the Foundation has already raised more than $376,570 against its goal of $1.5 million to carry out its work to fund grants that not only help shelters operate, but to further shelter innovations.


The Pedigree Foundation depends on charitable contributions from individuals to carry out its mission to help dogs find loving homes. In addition to writing a blog post, here’s how you can help:
Once you get your post up and ready please feel free to grab the link code to include it in your post and add your link to the list so it is easier to keep track of all the posts plus it makes it so easy for your friends to learn about the event and see the progress we are making towards our goal of 10,000 lbs of food.

Do you know someone who needs to get healthy?

Do you know someone who needs to get healthy but doesn't have the energy to workout? Send them the link to this website and before you know it they will be running circles around you. Not only that but they will be thanking you for helping them get their health and life back. Its not about depriving your body of calories it is about fueling your body with the protein, vitamins, and minerals their body needs in order to function properly. By replacing 2 unbalanced meals with 2 properly balanced meals they will feel the difference in their own bodies and begin to make changes to the rest of their lives both mentally and physically.

Is soy harmful to men?

Picture from USC Health magazine

Is soy harmful to men? Does it make “man boobs”? NO!

A common misperception exists that soy contains estrogen. Soy does not contain the hormone estrogen, but it does contain isoflavones, also known as phytoestrogens or “plant estrogens.”

While the chemical structure of isoflavones is similar to estrogen, the two function very differently in the body.
