Help Me Raise £250 For The Dogs Trust By Leaving Me A Link To Your Blog

The Christmas tree is up, but something is missing. There are no gifts under it, and I need your help to put that right.

For this year’s Christmas charity appeal, I’m asking you to help me raise up to £365 for The Dogs Trust.

The Dogs Trust, formerly known as the National Canine Defence League, is an animal welfare charity and humane society in the United Kingdom which specialises in the well-being of dogs. Click here to go to their website.

Want to get involved? Here’s what you need to do.

  1. In the comments section of this post, leave the name of your blog and a link to it. This can be a link to your ‘about me’ page, a favourite blog post you’ve published, or the home page of your blog.
  2. If you’re an author, you’re also welcome to leave me a link to any books you have published. So, for example, leave me a link to your author or Goodreads page so that people visiting this post can view your books.
  3. Please consider donating to The Dogs Trust by visiting their website and clicking on the ‘Donate Now’ button.

That’s it, that’s all you need to do.

I will donate £1 to The Dogs Trust for every link that is left under my Christmas tree until I reach a target of 250 links.

To help me achieve my target, if you reblog or share this post via ‘Press This’, I will donate an extra £1 to the total (up to another £115).

If you do share this post via a reblog or ‘Press This’, I should receive a pingback to your post. However, I would recommend that you also leave a link to the reblog or your share in the comments section.

This charity appeal will run until 23:59 on Saturday, January 6th, 2018 (Twelfth Night) when the Christmas tree will be taken down, so you’ve plenty of time to leave me a link to your blog and books over the busy Christmas and New Year period.

At the end of the appeal, I will create a new heading entitled ‘Blogs To Follow in 2018’  on the menu bar of my blog. Anyone clicking on the link will be taken to a page where they can view all the links left to the blogs in this post. The link will remain live on my blog until 23:59 on December 31st, 2018.

Please note that as I moderate all links and comments before they appear on my blog, there may be a time delay before your links and comments appear.

I hope you will consider helping me with this year’s Christmas charity appeal by leaving me a link to your blog and/or books. Thank you so much for considering it.

  1. Hi Hugh,
    I’m sorry I missed this, but thought I’d leave a link since I’m a big animal lover and own four rescue dogs and three horses. Here’s a link to a dog story on my blog that I wrote for Kevin Morris’ anthology to help guide dogs for the blind:
    And here is a link to my two books about horses:
    Thank you so much for the opportunity, and thank you for what you do.

    1. Thank you for leaving your links, Valerie. The Christmas tree may have been taken down a month ago, but it’s still great to get your support. The appeal was a great success and the blogging community helped me raise £271 for the Dogs Trust.
