Paws for a Cause

So I’ve been neglecting my blog and my posts that are due.

But it’s for a good cause…


The non-profit I started, Helping Hands of Nocatee, Inc is hosting a Paws for a Cause event to benefit a local animal pet shelter, Wags & Whiskers in St. Augustine, FL. The event is this Saturday!!

That means I’m a little stressed right now. Although I have a few, and by few I mean like 2, other women helping me put this together. I have been working hard at getting donations for food and drinks to sell, getting vendors to come to the event and getting the community to be aware of the event! Phew. I’m exhausted and I still have 3 days to go.

Today I have to put the signs together, pick up the rest of the donated food, get more announcements out on Facebook and take some pictures and make some other signs. Don’t forget all the other “mom” things and my blog.

I do have some projects that are due and will get to them next week. I apologize.

If you live in the North Florida area and would like to come out, please do! I’d love to meet you!

The event will be Saturday April 26th from 2-5pm and the Nocatee Town Center in Ponte Vedra, FL.

I’ll update you all on the event next week!


I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!
