The 2019 Christmas Charity Appeal – Help Raise £250 For Battersea Dogs & Cats Home By Leaving Links To Your Blogs and Books

For this year’s Christmas charity appeal, Hugh Roberts is asking for help raising money for Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.

Since 1860, Battersea has been there for every dog and cat that finds themselves homeless. From the moment they welcomed their first stray dog, they have been placing animals at the centre of everything they do.

More than three million animals later, they’re still working hard to achieve the vision that every dog and cat should live in a home where they are treated with love, care and respect.

They believe that every dog and cat deserves the best. That’s why Battersea Dogs and Cats home have always helped every dog and cat in need.

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

    1.    Go to Hugh’s website and scroll down to the comments section.

    2.    Leave your name, the name of your blog, and a link to your blog. This can be a link to your ‘about me’ page, a favourite blog post you’ve published, or the home page of your blog.

    3.    If you’re an author, you’re also welcome to leave a link to any books you have published. So, for example, leave a link to your author or Goodreads page so that people visiting this post can view your books.

    4.    Please consider donating to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home by visiting their website and clicking on the ‘Donate’ button.

For every link left under the Christmas tree, Hugh will donate £1 until he reaches a target of 200 links.

To help him achieve his target, if you reblog or share this post via ‘Press This,’ he will donate an extra £1 to the total (up to another £50).

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

This charity appeal will run until 23:59 on Saturday, January 4th, 2020 when the Christmas tree will be taken down. Hugh hopes this will give everyone plenty of time to leave a link to their blog and/or books over the busy Christmas and New Year period.

At the end of the appeal, Hugh will create a heading entitled ‘Blogs To Follow in 2020‘ on the menu bar of his 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 on his blog until the end of 2020.
