Let's Roll it Over!


 I can hardly believe it, but today is our last official day of fundraising.   It's been a wild ride and a long, emotional  month.  But all of you were right there being wonderful and supportive, which made things a whole lot easier.   We met every challenge before us, and today, we're going to hit our goal.  I can hardly wait!

I've been saving one last major matching donation challenge from our dear friend Cynthia for the final day of the fundraiser.   It's a biggie, and once we meet it, we're going to BLOW past our goal.

Until 5:30 PM, Pacific Time, Cynthia will be matching every dollar donated until we hit her $3000 cap.

That gives us a hair under 12 hours to do it.   I know it's not  a ton of time, but historically, on the last day of our fundraiser, donations come in fast and furious, so I'm confident we can meet the match.  

Once we meet it, I'll add her match to the pot, our goal will be met (and then some).  I thought it might be nice,  given how much she has given, that she should be the one to take us over the top.

SO, here we go!   Let's roll it over!

To make a tax-deductible donation,   please hurry on over to our fundraising page.  Your dollars will be doubled by this awesome match, and you'll help get us closer to our $75 Squillion goal!

Thank you everyone for all the incredible support.   Thank you Cynthia for your many generous matching challenges.

You all mean the world to us.  Thank you for being so wonderful.

I've got lots of fun posts planned for today,  including the announcement of our IBKC Poetry Corner Contest winners, so please stay close!

PS Our $3000 match will be met when we hit $74,775


  1. made a small donation this morning. you may be far away from me but your reach extends far by inspiring others to give and to help in their own communities. so amazed by all you do! way to go!

  2. I continue to be amazed and awed by Cynthia Suprenant's generosity! I can't match her resources, but I'll make my 5th small donation today.

  3. Cynthia, you knock my socks off!

  4. Cynthia, you are clearly the Itty Bitties' guardian angel in human form! What a giving heart you have -- thank you so much!

  5. I think the next year's worth of kittens should bear the sir name "Suprenant". I, too, cannot match her resources but will also make my final donation today and thanks for allowing me to be a part of this communitee!! I'm setting up a small fund in my home to start collecting bits here and there for next year - I wanna sponser a match!!

  6. That picture sooo reminds me of my Gus in this one!/photo.php?fbid=373994612664368&set=a.132082616855570.24841.130319020365263&type=1&theater ..learning to own it like a big kitty already. Too cute. I can't believe your abilities Laurie!! I'm still so amazed by all you do and am so thankful I have had the honor of meeting and knowing you! Never change!

  7. Cynthia, you continue to astonish me not only with your creative talents but with your incredible generosity! Thank you for helping the cats and kittens of this world!

  8. I just made my first donation! My mommy helped me. I've been begging her to do it this whole month because she saved me from the street one day about 5 years ago. Charlene Butterbean is my fantasy girlfriend. I heart her. Yours affectionately, Mr. Whiskers

  9. I'm so happy to see that IBKC and Laurie are going to hit 75 squillion! That will do so much good for the animals.

    My sincerest appreciation to Cynthia for her generosity, as well as to everyone else who donated. And of course thanks must go to the kitty phone staff, their supervisor Charlene, and fundraiser extraordinaire Laurie.

  10. Oh, we're so close! Cynthia is a kitten-loving angel!

    ^^Mr Whiskers, thank you for donating with your mommy's help—I'm sure Charlene will be impressed, but you should know, she's RILLY BIZEE with kittens most of the time. :)

  11. Oh, Cynthia, I am so glad you exist. Thank you.

  12. Just made my first donation (I live in the UK so always use the fundraiser as a kick to do more for our local cat charities)

    Cynthia you are an amazingly generous lady and an inspiration! May you always have warm purrs to lull you to sleep.
