Iams Home for the Holidays & Blogging for Bowls

Since I haven't been doing this blogging thing long, I'm still learning about the number of opportunities we bloggers have to truly impact the lives of shelter animals. And I have to say, I'm really impressed.

This time around, to help kick off its Home for the Holidays and Bags for Bowls campaigns, Iams will donate 100 bowls of food for every blog that joins the Blogging for Bowls Blog Hop between October 3 - October 10, 2011. How easy is that?

"Iams Home 4 the Holidays, one of the world’s largest pet adoption programs, kicks off its annual adoption drive in partnership with Helen Woodward Animal Center. Their goal is to find homes for 1.5 million orphaned cats and dogs. Now in its 13th year, Iams’ Home 4 the Holidays, which runs up to January 3, 2012, has helped place 5.8 million pets in their forever homes.

While finding loving homes for orphaned pets is the core of the program, the campaign also provides shelters and rescue centers with much needed food donations. With the help of consumers, the Iams Bags 4 Bowls program aims to donate 5 million meals to animals housed in participating organizations."

Don't have a blog? That's ok, there are ways you can help, too:

  • Visit the Iams Facebook page and clicking “Like.” For each “Like”, comment or photo posted, Iams will donate meals.
  • Create a custom adoption announcement or holiday card to share the news of a new four-legged family member or just send a season’s greeting to family and friends. For each card created and shared, Iams will donate meals. Again, go to the Iams Facebook page to get started.
  • Purchase specially-marked packages of Iams dog or cat food during the duration of the campaign. For every specially-marked package sold, Iams will donate one bowl of food to a participating Iams Home 4 The Holidays animal organization.

If you are a blogger or have a website, join the Blog Hop and claim those 100 bowls of food!
