Turning Bad Newz Good!

Recently, a nonprofit group (Dogs Deserve Better) asked the question:

Do We Turn Vick's Bad Newz Kennel into the DDB Good Newz Rehab Center, or build in another location? 

People 'voted' with $1 donations for 15 days, and the overwhelming majority of votes said "DO IT!" In fact, 98% of those who voted felt that purchasing the former Vick property was a fitting tributes to the dogs who lived, fought, and died there. 

In order to make this happen they still need to raise more money...$500,000 more to be exact.  Every dollar that's given for DDB to buy this property sends dog abusers like Vick a message: We didn't like what you did and now we as a nation will show you how animals DESERVE to be treated.

Here are the ways we could get to $500,000:
1 Donor of $500,000
100 Donors of $5,000
1000 Donors of $500
10,000 Donors of $50
100,000 Donors of $5
So it's REALLY not that hard! Can you donate $5 and get 5 of your friends to donate $5? If each of us did that, we'd be there in ONE DAY!  Visit DDB for more info or to donate!
Or visit their ebay auction and shop for this wonderful cause. 

This Campaign has Gotten a LOT of National Media Attention to Date. Below are Some Links:

If you aren't familiar with DDB, they are a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to freeing the chained dog, and bringing our 'best friend' into the home and family.  Find them on Facebook too!
