if anyone has anxieties in pageants during the interview portion this might help you out! I know a lot of my friends have trouble not being nervous and I certainly do. But I love this article. It is very helpful and very true.
I have finally got some supporters and it looks like the food/supply drive is going to be a huge success! Tomorrow I will be going to the Reslife meeting on campus to propose putting bins in all of the residence halls. I explained to them already what I am planning to do and what I am asking and they seem very open minded and welcoming :) Only one bin is out so far. Now I need to get the rest out and ask the grocery stores to donate if possible.
I have my animal rights group meeting at 5:30. They should be able to help me with some new ideas! Ill be volunteering at the animal shelter in Delhi on october 15th and we might start a dog walking service! All of it is right up my alley lol

Im starting my interview studies early. But I dont even like to call it studying. It gets so interesting and involved lol. As I'm going through articles online I get led to another interesting article and then I'm just on the computer forever :p Pageant Planet on facebook is my new addiction! Later on I will list some of the articles I loved today if anyone is interested :)

Updates yay!

I went to wal-mart today and got all of the supplies I need to start the food/supply drive. I got permission to conduct the drive in Alumni Hall at SUNY oneonta and asked permission to attend the resident life meeting at 9am tomorrow morning to make a proposal to place bins in the residence halls. I hope they say yes! I think a lot of students will pay attention and want to help these animals have food. Apparently the dry dog food goes bad quickly so they have asked for canned dog and cat food, treats, purina kitten and puppy chow, and the nonexpensive/nonclumping cat litter. Anything is welcome though. EVERYTHING helps. I am also planning on donating to "Helping Paws" in Broadalbin because they run their shelter out of their home. They can probably definitely use dry dog food so if you want to donate it that will still be extremely helpful! The next step is notifying them that I want to help them haha thats what I'm going to attend to now :)

Hurricane Irene

Hurricane Irene has not only affected the citizens of our communities. The damage and hardship has been extended onto our pets and companions. The Humane Society is taking in any displaced animals that have been seperated from their families as a result of Hurricane Irene.
here is an article that explains in depth

There are contributions that can be made big or small! Buy a case of water for 6 dollars and leave it at a collection site for a family that may have lost power, water and are not in posession of other supplies they may need. You can make this easier for someone else AND their animals.

I will be conducting a supply drive at my college campus as well as a couple other places in the town of oneonta. Food for both people and pets are welcome. Animal shelters and The Humane Society will greatly appreciate the supplies due to taking in more animals that have been dislocated. Any kind of blankets, canned goods, and other accessories that may be necessary are welcome as well! We will take everything! I will update the locations of these drives when I get it all set up. Thank you!
