Many thanks to Bri and Gerry (aka: gerrysmom) for the recent contribution on behalf of all the Tripawds at their recent Tripawds Party in Wisconsin. Bri's generousity earns her a custom video from SmartyPants Productions, and enters her in our drawing for the autographed copy of Guardians of Being by Patrick McDonnell.
Anyone notice that big jump in the ChipIn widget above today? We owe that to the generousity of two members:
Catherine Murray along with Jane, Chloe and Spirit Skyler (aka: Cathy) thanked us with this sweet comment along with her thoughtful contribution... "What you do for all of us is priceless, so this is our way of saying thank you!"
Bob and Emily Bailey (aka: Cherry) went above and beyond the call of duty with a second generous contribution on behalf of their angel dogs Cherry and Allie. We caught Bob in the chat room
shortly after and he explained how they're following the lead of Tasha's Challenge by making their own monthly contributions for four months, to honor Cherry.

Many thanks to Gwen and Spirit Harley (aka: Hopalong Harley) for their kind contribution. Anyone else care to keep this campaign going?
Thank you Myrna, whoever your are!
New Tripawds member myrnajane was kind enough to contibute to the 2010 Community Campaign, but she has yet to post in the forums and does not have a blog. All we know is she is from Canada, and believes this community is worthy of a contribution to help keep it online. Anyone else feel the same way?
Well, wereceived subscription payments from Jo Ann and Mary who have taken The Tasha Challenge. Other than that we haven't received any contributions in a couple days. Care to help us reach our goal? Paypal contributions using the ChipIn widget above are quick, and completely secure, and will help us keep this site online another year.
Campaign contributions have slowed down, but over the past few days we did receive tokens of appreciation from Jody (aka: jody4abby) and Ryan. Thank you both!

Thank you all for your support and understanding that we take no salary for maintaining this website.
Here's a huge thanks to our two most recent major contributors to the 2010 Tripawds Community Campaign...
Heather (aka: zeus) has given again, this time with a special message:
"Zeusy wanted to kick you guys over 60% We love you!!! Mommy and Zeusy - Buddy too."
Heather's generosity qualifies her for a $75 Vavra Italy gift certificate!
Charon (aka: etgayle) informed us with her generous contribution that Comet is making is making a video for Gayle, and a video for Jane!
Many thanks to both for helping us toward reaching our campaign goal.
While we certainly appreciate these large contributions, we would love to see more members giving smaller amounts. If you find this website helpful, please consider a small contribution.

It's been a couple days since Pam contributed, but we've been waiting for others to give before posting a thank you note. Who's next?
