"Season of Giving" Christmas Show

On Wednesday, December 17, 2008 beginning at 2:30pm Eastern, Animal Talk Naturally will host a two hour "Season of Giving" show through their regular platform on Blog Talk Radio at to raise funds for Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch in order to help rescue horses and kids; Paws and Think which pairs at-risk shelter dogs with at-risk youth; and "Animals In Paradise" which is an upcoming documentary film about the eternal lives of animals.
Animal Talk Naturally will celebrate Christmas by supporting two nonprofit animal charities and an upcoming documentary film on the eternal lives of animals on their second annual Christmas show with twelve of their former and repeat guests! Each of the twelve special guests - who are each giving of their time and talent - will share their own unique message during the show, along with Christmas music provided by Jean Wenzel and Mary Buddemeyer-Porter. Irena Schulz, Snowball mom, will be one of the guests on "Season of Giving."
“We’ve had a lot of support from businesses stepping up to provide giveaways to anyone in our listening audience who donates $50 or more to at least one of the charities or the documentary film during the live two-hour show.” comments Dr. Jeannie Thomason, co-host of Animal Talk Naturally. “Each business that is participating will not only have their name and website mentioned on the show but, they are also receiving an entire year of advertising on
our Season of Giving page on Animal Talk Naturally’s Website which will remain on the site until next year’s show!”
“We have also received tremendous support from two other radio shows - EFA Artists for Animals and also Something About Women -a local NM radio show.” states Dr. Kim Bloomer, co-host of Animal Talk Naturally. “We are hoping that businesses will also donate directly to the charities or the documentary along with the live listening audience during the show. The more the better! The good news is that both charities are 501c3 non-profits so your donations are tax deductible. The documentary film is not a non-profit but whoever donates to "Animals In Paradise" will have their name listed in the credits and possibly your own piece of
video with your pet will be included in the film. Jesus was born into the world to give His life for us. The least we can do is give of our resources to help those less fortunate during this special time and season of giving.”
