it dawned on me dat sum of mai newer furends might not nose wat pawpawty iz or how it works so i borrowed dis note frum mai pal kittehboi:
"A pawpawty is a virtual party held by and for the anipals (animal pals) on Twitter. To join, search hashtag #pawpawty. Each pawpawty benefits a different animal charity. A pawpawty lasts for an entire day and is attended by anipals from around the world. There are DJs spinning tunes using such sites as blip.fm and Grooveshark; Barktenders who serve virtual drinks such as Hank's Bacon Beer and tunatinis; and a Sekurity detail. It takes a lot of work to put together a pawpawty. Scheduling volunteers (over 50 at each party!), custom artwork, virtual menus. Dougal and his team do this every month. They are my heroes! You can read more about the individual team members on the Anipal Times - #PawPawty Team"
to date, pawpawty haz raised more den $37,000 to support anipal charities all around da world! i hopes u will join us fur next month's pawty on Sept 4 & 5.
