TpT Sellers are Giving Back

Last week we had quite the fright for our family.  One of our fur babies, our bulldog, Peyton, became very sick with a digestive disease and then she developed pneumonia on top of it.  Next thing we knew she couldn't use her back legs for long periods of time.  Our veterinarian was doing all she could, but she told us to be prepared that it was Peyton's time to go.  We weren't ready to say goodbye.  We've only had her for 2 and a half years.

Peyton has lived a long, hard life.  She was kept as a breeding dog by a puppy mill in the mid-west and wasn't rescued from their deplorable conditions until she was five years old and had birthed multiple litters of puppies.  That's when the National Mill Dog Rescue (NMDR) from Peyton, Colorado went in and rescued her and dozens of other dogs and brought them back to Colorado to be bathed, groomed, vetted, and eventually adopted to loving families.  We found her through their organization and named her in their honor, for all the wonderful work they do to free dogs from puppy mills and get them into warm, caring, and loving homes.

Amazingly, Peyton has recovered and is almost back to her old self.  Despite her hard life she has never stopped fighting to keep going.  Her story is inspiring.

This Sunday, I, along with many other sellers on Teachers Pay Teachers will be giving back a portion, or all of our earnings for that day, to a charitable cause of our choice.  I will be giving 100% of my earnings from December 13, 2015 to the National Mill Dog Rescue so that they can continue to rescue and care for puppy mill victims.

I encourage you to look for sellers on TpT with the following logo on their store, as they too will be giving to charity on that day.
Not only will you be getting a quality lesson plan, but you will be further helping an organization in need.  You can also visit Nitty Gritty Science's blog for a list of many of the participants.
