Washington Humane Society could win $100,000 to save animals lives!

Imagine what Washington Humane Society could accomplish if we won $100,000 in a contest to save lives. The lives that could be saved and the second chances granted, that sure would make a large difference to the animals in the District. WHS is currently in a position to win that money but we need your help!

WHS is one of 93 humane societies nationwide competing for a spot in the ASPCA’s $100K Challenge, a competition which could bring us the $100,000 grand prize to help more animals in the District. In order to be granted a spot in the competition, WHS must be one of the top 50 groups in community online voting. Voting ends on April 15th, 2011. Voters can cast their vote for WHS once each day at www.votetosavelives.org

Explore Early American History in one of DC’s Original Neighborhoods

From Claire Mouledoux of Visit Alexandria:

ALEXANDRIA, VA – As one of Washington, DC’s original neighborhoods, only Alexandria offers an authentic experience of early American history in the setting of George Washington’s hometown. Unaffected by a Federal Government shutdown, Alexandria’s many attractions and more than 20 historic sites bring to life this country’s incredible past, from colonial times through the Civil War and beyond, in a charming walkable setting teeming with contemporary delights like boutique shopping, acclaimed dining, and vibrant nightlife.

Minutes from Washington, DC, Alexandria is easily accessible with four Metrorail stops. The Free King Street Trolley runs between the King Street Metro Station and Potomac River waterfront with frequent stops for hopping on and off to enjoy all that Old Town has to offer.
