Lol maybe she will overlook you and nominate someone else.

My daughter got challenged by my sister yesterday so I figure I will be challenged next by my daughter.

Nope, she did indeed nominate me for the challenge. So I'm going to do it after I get off work tomorrow.

Thanks. I figured when I wrote this I was gonna get jumped, but it hasn't happened yet

Quoting momofnatalie:

I commend you for helping animals.  I know when the challenge was created it was one person trying to honor a friend's struggle.  I wish now we could raise funds for other causes as well. 

Quoting berlgirl1224: I was challenged but didn't do it.
I was changed at 10pm on a Wednesday. Within the 24 I had to complete my challenge, I took an injured stray cat to a nearby shelter because she needed immediate care. I donated to her cause. $25
And then I went to work and worked until 11pm
Then on Friday, I took another cat to the same shelter who had been run over by a car, and lost it's tail and was being eaten by maggots, so I donated to them again, another $25 and then went to work again until 11pm
So within 48 hours of bein challenged, I donated $50 to an animal shelter and saved the lives of two kitties, I believe I did my part, even though it wasn't for ALS

I WILL NOT make a video and post it even though I haven't given the $10 to ALS. To me, that is being a fake. And honestly, on a waitress's budget, I am out of money after saving those kitties.

All year I do ate to other charities that are close to my heart that family members have been through (lives with and died from) so it's not like I have a black heart.

I don't feel bad with my decision

No, we are a good group.  I think everyone values someone with a good heart like you! :)

We were nominated and didn't do it. I don't cave to pressure ;)
