Cincinnati, OH -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/20/2014 -- Three Norwegians wants to help companion cats who are most in need of assistance: homeless shelter cats and cats of low-income families in need of medical care. On February 14, Three Norwegians kicked off the Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign, Buy a Book. Save a Cat., which was created to fund the new children’s book The Bad Guy on the Block. A portion of every book sold goes to a cat in need of medical care. “It’s a significant financial challenge for rescuers like me to help otherwise healthy cats get the medical care they need,” says Holly Fertig, campaign team member and former veterinary technician. “Returning them to health is often the only way they have a chance of getting into a loving forever home.”
To help more cats by engaging the broad cat-loving community, Three Norwegians is launching The BIG CAT Blogger Contest. From now until March 17, cat bloggers will have an opportunity to demonstrate their influence with cat lovers in a special Indiegogo referral contest. The cat blogger who helps to raise the highest amount of monetary contributions through referrals to the Buy a Book. Save a Cat. campaign will earn The BIG CAT title as the Most Influential Cat Blogger of 2014.
The Grand Prize winner will receive $475 value in perks, including three copies of The Bad Guy on the Block along with three Official Three Norwegians Field & Co. Messenger Bags to share with important fans and followers. The winner will also receive special recognition in the first printing of The Bad Guy on the Block that will include their name, blog name and BIG CAT title as the Most Influential Cat Blogger of 2014.
Cat bloggers can participate in the contest by submitting their name, blog name and URL on the Comments tab of the campaign site at: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/buy-a-book-save-a-cat/x/6039173
Referral contributions will be reported weekly for each blogger to allow progress tracking. The Grand Prize winner will be announced after the closing of the campaign on March 17. More details and contest rules are available in the Gallery section of the campaign site.
