Mathematical Magic

Remember my post about meeting people you feel you have known before?  (  Well, I have a very dear friend, and I wouldn't be surprised if we DID sing and dance together right before coming to earth.  I would like to introduce her to you as the guest blogger for today.  Isn't it nice that she was willing to help out so I could enjoy a break (break = going and working on endless adoption paperwork)?  She is a much better writer than I, and I'm grateful that she was willing to step in.  If you want to enjoy more of her amazing writing, you can visit her blog:



I'm not going to lie. I love them.
Pumps, flats, espadrilles, athletics, sandals, you name it, I've gotta have it.
And by "it", I mean "them". Because shoes come in pairs.

And if you know nothing more about me, that would be enough.

But you should also know this...
That I think the one thing better than a new pair of shoes is a good new-pair-of-shoes sale.
The kind that make it so you can get more shoes for your money.
Because who doesn't want more shoes for their money?
There is absolutely everything right about this whole concept.

And there is one kind of shoe sale that reigns supreme.
Yep. The Buy One Get One.
There is just something about the BOGO that satisfies like nothing else can.
Including a 2 pound box of chocolates.
There's a reason for this, and it is simple...

BOGO = Half the price, Twice the impact.
It's like Mathematical Magic!

And that is what I thought of when I read this proposal from We-Wish-To-Remain-Anonymous donors...


"We are willing to match any donation you receive for your adoption adventure from now until Friday, September 21, up to $1,000.  So, if someone donates $20, we will donate $20.  If someone donates $100, we will donate $100.  It's like those 2 for 1 sales that we all love so much!  So the goal is to receive $1,000 in donations by Friday, September 21, and we will donate $1,000 to match."

Okay, people. Did you catch that in there? 
I will repeat, just in case you didn't...

"It's like those 2 for 1 sales that we all love so much!"

Breathe in. Breathe out. And now screech in delight!! 
Because this is your chance to make twice the difference, for the same cost...
Or the same difference for half the cost.
(If that even makes sense. It does in my head.)
Either way, it means the same thing...

BOGO  Donations!!!

And either way you make a difference.

So here is how this will work...

From now until Friday, September 21, these very generous We-Wish-To-Remain-Anonymous donors will match any donation, up to $1000. So, if you donate $20, they will donate $20. If you donate $100, they will donate $100.

Pretty much like what they said. Well...pretty much exactly what they said. 

The end goal?
$1000 in donations by Friday, Sept. 21.
And then a $1000 donation match.
Honestly, how simple (and appealing!) is that?
I will answer for you...
Very simple (and appealing!)
And it includes all the naturally amazing elements of a really great shoe sale.

More donation for your money...
Satisfaction like nothing else...
And absolutely everything right about the whole concept.
For something far more important than shoes.

So hurry! The time is now! And time is running out.

Go, go, go,  BOGO!!

Half the price, Twice the impact.
Pure and simple mathematical magic!

And as always, thank you so much for your support.
