You did it - Barn Raising MATCH MET!

Just two days ago, we sent an e-alert asking for help with meeting a large matching gift challenge. Thanks to the subscribers of our modest (3 thousand subscribers) mailing list, we were able to raise just over $3000 in two days time - Amazing. And Tana Madrigal's gift of 10K is now doubled as promised. If this fund raising effort has taught us anything, it's how deeply 'pit bull people' care about creating better days for this breed.

It was a pleasure to open our photoshop program on this Thursday evening and raise the bar on the Barn Raising graphic. Go Petey!

Many thanks to everyone listed below. From $5 to $300 - every single gift built on the one before it. We're now two thirds of the way to our goal.

Please alert us if your name was accidentally omitted or misspelled so we can correct in future announcements. If you chose to send a check rather than use PayPal, we hope to acknowledge you as soon as your gift moves through our donation system. It's very important to all of us that your generosity is recognized, so look for your name on an upcoming BAD RAP Blog post.

With so much gratitude!
