Kibble Counting

Hi Everybuddy -

A couple months ago we talked about a great website called which was launched after a very generous and enterprising 12 year old girl named Mimi decided she wanted to do something to help feed the staggering number of dogs and cats in shelters across our country. Recognizing that these shelters were on such limited budgets she took her plea to the public. It was a very simple concept. All anyone had to do was click on the link shown on her website and 10 pieces of kibble were to be donated by various manufacturers to shelters for dogs and cats. As a result she has singlehandedly changed the availability of food for homeless pets.

The numbers speak for themselves. When her site initially launched she began generating numerous hits and was quite pleased with herself. In April of this year 170,850 pieces of kibble were donated. By May word started to get out and her number increased to 188,160. In July her concept hit MSNBC and CNN. By the end of July her number increased to 9,462,720! She was a HIT! Needless to say, Mimi from Oregon is ecstatic. I am so pleased to present to you the latest statisticstics from Mimi's website. The numbers have increased to the point that they're now listing them by DAY! Take a look:

September 11, 2008 202,830

September 10, 2008 204,990

September 9, 2008 206,340

September 8, 2008 203,040

September 7, 2008 149,140

September 6, 2008 146,500

September 5, 2008 192,460

September 4, 2008 199,470

September 3, 2008 197,560

September 2, 2008 196,250

To date a total of 28,259,810 pieces of kibble have been donated since April 1, 2008. We are so proud of Mimi. It gives us hope that there are still many people that care about the pets that are in need and the future holds promise. Please visit Mimi's website each day. Click on the badge found on her home page and play a fun bow wow trivia game and at the same time guarantee that another 10 pieces of kibble are donated for the day on behalf of you and your pets. You can download your own banner to donate dog or cat kibble to place on your blog or website here. Please help Mimi to continue her project. You can find a badge on the right sidebar of my blog, or - download your very own. Now, I've got some counting to do!

"1, 2, 3, 4.......Woo!"
