and the winner is… !

Robyn Arouty, of Project 71, you are the winner of the free 1-week lens rental through!

By a totally random selection based on the number of comments (124. note, the 125th comment does not count as it’s a track- back), the lovely website generated a number of 57 for us, and after many counts and re-counts to make sure we knew what comment #57 was, it is determined that Robyn is the winner!


For those who aren’t familiar with Robyn’s name, I’d like to take this opportunity to give her a shout out here on the Cowbelly blog.

Robyn has a business called Project 71.

“project71” defined… (from the website)

an animal enters a shelter & during the first 72 hours they will either:

1) be united with their owner.
2) enter an adoption program.
3) be euthanized.

in theory, we see the 71st hour as their most crucial… that’s why we have devoted our lives to volunteering, fostering, rescuing & comforting as many shelter animals as we can. if you would like to donate a dog bed to an animal at a shelter, please specify the address you would like it shipped to.

Robyn collects dog beds for homeless pups in shelters, which, IMO, is one of the most caring things you can do for an animal in a shelter, other than feeding, walking it and giving it a new home. The beds make the dogs feel more at home than sleeping in a cold concrete floor, and for those who have come from a home before, make the shelter transition just a little bit easier. It provides just a little bit of warmth during a cold and scary time.

Please go check out Robyn’s organization, and if you have your own blog, write a post of your own on Project 71.

Robyn I will be emailing you about next steps and congratulations!

  1. Correction: Robyn does NOT collect beds for animals in homeless shelters–she SELLS them. Please do not confuse people–Project71 is not a charity it is a profit business.

  2. I also wanted to say a big thanks to everyone for playing! Some of your comments were downright hilarious and had me laughing out loud. I hope to do more of these contests in the future. 🙂
