I am raising money, along with my Chicken Chunk Challenge team members, by walking for the Home for Life Animal Sanctuary.

When my friend Heather told me about her Chicken Chunk Challenge, in honor of her cat who recently passed, I didn't even have to ask what my husband thought. I just told him to sign us up, including the baby.

I read about Home For Life and knew this was a good cause. While Chicken Chunk is the inspiration for our team I think we all know a pet with special needs, a pet that would be considered unadoptable to others. For me that pet is my cat Gilley. While he can be extra work, I can't imagine a life without him.

Home For Life takes in animals like Chunky and Gilley and provides lifetime care for them, providing a quality life. But they don't stop there, they also train some of the animals to enrich the lives of humans at nursing homes, domestic abuse shelters, and hospitals. And if that isn't enough, they also have programs that give at-risk youth the opportunity to train the service animals.

So really, a donation goes to more than just the animals, you are helping humans too! It's a 2 for 1 deal!

Speaking of deals, how about this...

I will be including a free gift when you donate on this page! Simply choose the donation amount and you will receive a handmade gift from Amanda Made It. As you can see each dollar amount has it's own prize. Naturally shipping is free, because you are awesome for donating.

-Please allow about 4 weeks for your gift to be delivered as I will be making each one as you donate.

-For donation amounts that list 2 gift options please include your choice in the "comment" section of the donation page.

-Stuffed animals will be "surprise me" kind of thing for the fabric, but you may make a request as far as "boy" or "girl" colors.

-Each animal will vary slightly from those pictured as I have only a rough pattern and they tend to take on shape of their own as I go.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and check out the information.
