Two Girls and a Puppy - Facebook 'like' campaign

This has to be the cutest viral campaign, to get a puppy... ever.

This:

"We're two sisters who want a puppy! 

For those that are curious if we make it our new puppy will be a rescue either from a local shelter or a local rescue organization."

And then they posted this photo:




And guess what? They reached - at last count - 1,676,900 'likes' for the photo, with 120,000 'likes' on the Facebook page.

And then, the parents of the kids wrote this status update:

"Our profile picture just hit 1,000,000. Mom and Dad are officially stunned. Will have five ecstatic kids in the morning."

How awesome is that...?

UPDATE:

The family's page is up to 240,000 'likes', with more than 1.5 million 'likes' for their photo, above [as at 17 January, 2013].

And then, they posted this:

"Oh my goodness. We were on Good Morning America! This is absolutely crazy..."



And then:

"Mom here - We are researching various rescue groups in our area. We are definitely rescuing not buying. We don't want to make the wrong decision so give us a little bit of time. 

We think we are going to look for a black lab or golden retriever mix. 

We promise we'll post pictures and let you all know the rescue organization that we'll be working with."

And later:

"Everyone: we will be on Good Morning America tomorrow at 7:15. We cannot believe this is happening!"

God bless social media - when it's used for good!
