Country music’s chart-topping wildcard, Miranda Lambert, has done it again! Her eBay for Charity auction benefiting MuttNation Foundation raised $105,166.79.
“I know it was just Thanksgiving, but it already feels like Christmas. It just means so much that we’re able to help so many more rescues and shelter pets, especially at this time of year” Lambert said, adding “I’m incredibly grateful to my fans for making this auction such a great success. It almost makes me want to clean out my closet more often!”
Among the items with top bids, from over 400 items, were Miranda’s Silver and Black Crossed Pistols with Wings Cuff, her much-loved stage and video-worn Silver Embroidered Autographed Idyllwind Cowboy Boots, and Handwritten and Signed Lyrics to Bluebird.
Funds from the auction will also help ring in the holiday spirit as MuttNation again makes giving back the central theme to its Giving Tuesday program. Animal lovers will be asked to pledge one volunteer day to the shelter of their choice, automatically entering that shelter as a potential recipient of a MuttNation grant. Volunteers can fill out the online form at https://muttnation.com/pledge and will have from December 3rd’ until January 31st to complete their volunteer day. Ten shelters, double the number in 2019, will be randomly selected and announced on February 14th, 2020, each receiving a $1,000 grant from MuttNation. About MuttNation Foundation
