Help Atlanta Humane Get $50,000 (Pretty Please)

As you all know (or should know, or might not know but will know in just a moment), I'm just the slightest bit partial to the Atlanta Humane Society. The reason is pretty simple -- I'm married to it. My wife does great work there, and they could use a cool $50,000 boost to the coffers.

Purina and Kroger are running a contest where a "Tale For The Pet Lover's Heart" from a participating shelter could win that shelter $50,000. The tale from Atlanta Humane? Our beloved blind dog, Ray Charles. I've written about Ray before, and Andrea wrote the story of how he became ours that pops up when you mouseover "Atlanta Humane Society". So if you like it, vote for Atlanta Humane and our boy Ray.

You'll have to give up an email address to do it, and you can vote once per day. This is where the fun comes in. As you may or may not know (or should know, or will know in just another moment), any and all Gmail addresses can have as many periods as you want to give them. This makes signing up for crap multiple times easy peasy. All you have to do is stick random periods into your name and boom, instant 2nd (or 3rd, or 100000th) signup. I'm not asking you to do this, just pointing you toward new knowledge :)
