Join us as we travel to a galaxy far, far away
November 14 - 15
As soon as the family of @Petiethecat's Mama Louise asked for donations in her memory to be made to a wonderful charity called D'Arcy's ARC, the requests started coming in - could #NipClub choose it in her honor as the featured charity this month?
Indeed we could. Petie and Mama Louise were well known to and loved by many at #NipClub, and were responsible for introducing many of us to each other, and all those of us who knew them are delighted to have this opportunity to pay tribute to them.
There is one slight technical drawback, which I'm sure that none of Petie and Louise's pals will mind at all. D'Arcy's ARC does not collect their donations through PayPal, as our charities normally do, but uses a service called CanadaHelps.org. This means we can't set up our usual kind of widget, so we can't show you the donation level in our sidebar. You can donate just as usual by clicking on the Charity Tips Jar widget, which will take you straight to the page on CanadaHelps.org and pay through PayPal or a credit card. Clicking on the Charity Tips Jar widget will also let you check on the progress of the appeal without donating, so please don't think this is an attempt to mug you! :D
I hope you'll forgive the slight inconvenience and agree that it's a small price to pay for the opportunity to honor Mama Louise in the way her family have requested friends to do.
P.S. @Pumpkinpuddy compiled a lovely book about the very first Summer At The Lake With Petie and in honor of Mama Louise she's donating part of the sale of every book during November to D'Arcy's ARC, so if you haven't yet got your copy now's the perfect time to check it out!
