We've highlighted The Doctor's home and his marvelous sonic screwdriver, and now we celebrate the best part of him...his companions! This large 3" x 4" medal is the third in the "Galgos Series" of FOUR amazing medals and features more than a dozen "easter eggs" representing some of our favorite companions. Can you find them all? It comes with a beautiful sublimated ribbon and your own personalized digital bib.
All proceeds from this event, and the entire Galgos Series, will go to support two incredible charities working in Spain to save the lives of Spanish Greyhounds...better known as Galgos. SOS Galgos and Galgos Del Sol are the foremost organizations working to rescue and educate the Spanish public about these amazing animals. Bred as hunting and racing dogs, Galgos are a truly noble breed. However, tens of thousands of Galgos are either abandoned or brutally murdered every year in Spain once they reach the end of their "usefulness". Galgos Del Sol and SOS Galgos are working to change attitudes and laws, educate the public, and rescue thousands of these beautiful creatures. Please visit www.SOSGalgos.com and www.GalgosDelSol.org to learn more about what your participation will accomplish!
The suggested run date for this event is Friday, May 12th...the birthday of the amazing Catherine Tate (Donna Noble)! All of the medals will be mailed on Monday, May 22nd.
