Where Did All The Penguins Go?
You may have wondered about how the Penguin Amnesty and how it all worked out. When all’s said and done, I posted out approximately 6o donations of penguins and penguin merchandise to poorly kids and with the help of Parcels For Delivery and their wonderful Round Up Your Pound campaign, we raised £852.19…..£100 of which was donated by them as part of their annual Christmas donation.
Here is a link to their page which outlines how Parcels for Delivery supported the Penguin Amnesty. They are simply amazing and if you’re ever going to post a parcel, they’re the company to post it with! Love ’em!
And…if you’d like a nosey at the penguins people kindly donated, and the mischief they got up to, have a look HERE!
It was one of the strangest, most successful charity blogging projects I’ve ever been involved with and it seriously restored my faith in people and their capacity for selfless giving. Thank you so much. I still have some penguin prizes to send out, and although they are terribly, awfully late (in typical me stylee) they will be posted at some point. I have not forgotten.
To say thank you, I’d like to run a competition, my good friend Jo (@humanb3an) donated a penguin costume which you can see here:
It is a grown up size penguin costume so I couldn’t send it to any of the children so the plan was to use it for publicity purposes only. With that in mind, if you would like to own your very fabulous penguin outfit, please simply comment on the blog to say that you will visit the Post Pals page and at the very least think about sending something to a PostPals kid. That’s all you have to do. I’ve decided to post out a brand new penguin outfit directly from Amazon to the winner who will be chosen on the 1st June. Here’s a link to the prize! Don’t you think this would be fabulous for Halloween (you could be a zombie penguin or something) or for a kid’s party?
Please do enter the competition and show your support for the fabulous work that PostPals do. Thanks a million, billion, trillion to the myriad of businesses that donated to this project. You should all be very proud of what you helped to achieve. Thank you. Hugs, squeezes and penguin kisses, Kay :O) xxxxx
