If you have been following my blog or Facebook page, you are likely aware of the ongoing legal battle I am waging against my town to keep my backyard chickens. If you’re not up to speed, but are interested in the details, I have discussed them in this article
. In order to fund the defense of this legal persecution by my town, I invited my readers to support the cause and help defray the costs of litigation by donating to Operation Home to Roost (see below).
I wanted the thank you notes I sent to donors to be special and thought it would be fun if my frizzled diva, Rachel, “autographed” the thank you notes herself. I have made footprints aka: autographs of Rachel’s in the past with paint, but that was a messy procedure and impractical to reproduce on a large scale.
Rachel’s autograph on Chickens Magazine, which contained two articles I wrote for this edition. It was given away as a prize.
Realizing the impracticality of Rachel signing each thank you note personally, I thought a custom rubber stamp
would fit the need perfectly and it did!
My 9 year old took a little YouTube video while we obtained Rachel’s paw print. Easy peasy!
This is the actual stamp:
The one, major flaw in my master plan was that PayPal donors were not required to input their addresses as a part of the donation process. This means, I do not have your address if you already donated via PayPal. PLEASE SEND ME YOUR ADDRESS if you have already donated to Operation Home to Roost! Rachel has an autographed thank-you note waiting for you! Please send it with the subject line “Rachel” to me at: Kathy@The-Chicken-Chick.com
