    Yay! Thanks to all the petition signatures I've been gathering, I've been able to harvest 3000 credits per day. So today I donated my third sudanese seed packet and offset one pound of carbon. I only have ten credits left but thats okay because tomorrow I will have another 3000!

    I decided to feed a school child today instead of a kitten. The causes here are all such good ones that its hard to choose.

    All I need is five more credits today and I will be able to feed another kitten, in addition to the seed packet. Just realized that Care2 limits the amount of butterfly credits you can get per petition to a thousand per day. I guess I understand why but its frustrating.

    Today I sent my second seed packet of food to Sudan. I just worry that the war zone there may make donations difficult to deliver. Hopefully, the situation will defuse itself soon.

    I got my very first golden note today and made the front page of the news section. How exciting! I've also accrues 700 butterfly credits in petition signatures alone. Awesome.

    Wow, the power of petitions in regards to butterfly credits is staggering. I have 800 more points today than I expected to have. I am saving for a seed packet, which I expected to take 5 days at minimum but at this rate I should be able to buy it in two days max. The only question is whether to spend the 800 excess points on a separate cause (like feeding a kitten) or go ahead and save them toward the seed packet. Decisions, decisions...

    Guys please remember, if you leave images, make sure they fit the screen. If they are too big they break my profile and I can't accept them. And that makes me a sad panda.

    Today I managed to harvest 2,300 points in one day, thanks to signatures on my many petitions. Not too shabby, eh?

    That brought me to 2,800 points. I decided to spend 700 credits on bottlefeeding a kitten (in honor of Jay and our two cats Pouncer and Ashes who we love like children) and to offset four pounds of carbon, bringing it to an even total of 50 total pounds of carbon offset by yours truly.  

    At this moment I have 1,913 credits left, which will be saved toward a seed packet. At the rate I am going I should be able to donate one at the end of the first week of January. Woot!
