Click here to keep tabs on her badge ranking. The way they have the badges listed it is confusing but the ranking goes like this:
Also just FYI --- it is confusing in the contest rules but if you read further on this page you'll see that only the first 4 USA badges and then the first 4 International will win. At first when you read it looks like the top 8. :(
I was just talking to Bernie on the phone while she is is sleep deprived and driving 42 animals from TN to Chicago for adoptions -- she says she is at peace with whatever happens. We are thrilled and excited to have already raised SO MUCH money for A Place to Bark, that even if the additional $50,000 grant doesn't happen it will be OK. Thanks to all of your amazing and generous support this has been an incredible success even if we don't win the extra grant -- we still win!!!
It would be great for at least one animal rescue to be in the top 4, so whether it is A Place to Bark or 11th Hour, we are OK with that. At least we know animals will be helped. Each and everyone of these charities does good work for wonderful causes so whomever wins, it will all be for good!!
It's the last two hours.... here we go!! keeping fingers tightly crossed!!!!
Immediately after I sent my email to you about the 8 badges, I saw your blog post about 4 of them being international - darn - I was hoping I found some kind of loophole...still, what a great kind of competition - everyone wins.
I know you guys are at peace with whoever wins, but I'm still kinda hoping someone has been donating 10bucks at a time 300 times over for one of the other charities!
Good job no matter what happens! Much love.
i know I had dreams ALL NIGHT that there was a loophole and that the top 8 ended up winning. but it is only the top 4. still it will be OK not matter what. we have come SO FAR!!!
a dog's best friend --
they do an audit of the badges and strip off all the duplicate donations and then they notify you in 30 days. so there's still hope ;)
on a different note, i'm so excited it's thursday and i'm exceptionally eager for tonights project runway!!!!
yes there is still the off chance that one of the others has multiple donations and bernie might get bumped up in the audit! you never know! But either way it is all good. we have done so much and raised so much money and made a lot of friends a long the way!!!
this is so nerve wracking! I just wanted to thank you Miz Claudine for all that you've done to help w/ this contest. I'm keeping my paws crossed for good news!
