Save a Teddy this Christmas - WSPA Giveaway!!!

Hi Guys,
Can you believe Christmas is just 4 sleeps away!!!
Are you ready? I'm not!!! I'm hoping to finish everything tomorrow.

Anyway, this is Teddy, I think you agree he is super cute. Couldn't you just imagine giving him a big o'l snugly cuddle. My favorite Teddy bear was called Bruce, mum had to perform many types of surgery in his time with me, I still actually have him sitting on my shelf in my room.

Well the guys at WSPA have approached me to help raise awareness to the work they are doing to rescue 25 bears just like Teddy that are are suffering in cruel, illegal captivity in Romania. The poor bears are Imprisoned in cramped cages, they spend their life in run-down zoos, beside restaurants to attract diners, or kept as ‘pets’ in private households.  Not cool!!! :(

Now I don't want to put a downer on your Christmas but  could you imagine being stuck in these conditions day in, day out?  When reading about them I was really upset to read They gnaw at the bars of their cage and sometimes they dig in a helpless attempt for freedom.

Well I would like to ask you to help rescue these bears, so that they can be taken to the WSPA-funded bear sanctuary in Romania. Now I know not everyone can afford to make donations but I would like  to ask you to help me in raising the awareness for this cause by liking the WSPA Facebook page.

If you can spare any pennies to support the cause please visit the WSPA donation page. Your gift will help WSPA to protect animals from cruelty and suffering, including those featured in this appeal. Thank you.

WSPA has given me 2013 bear calendars to giveaway to three of my readers.  All I ask you to do to be entered into a random draw is leave a comment below and tell me what your childhood Teddy bear was called by Friday 4th January 2013.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post.

Well I plan to be back soon with another giveaway shortly!!

Ciao for now
Love Katrina xx
