Welcome to my amazing summer fundraiser!
This year, I have decided to create my own fundraiser so I could choose charities that really reflect my passions and actively engage in ways that will keep me motivated – and you entertained.
I have chosen two charities that you can pick from (or you can choose both!):
TURTLE VALLEY DONKEY REFUGE SOCIETY is an amazing farm in Chase, BC that takes in abused, unwanted, or neglected donkeys and keeps them happy and healthy on the farm for the rest of their lives. It’s truly inspiring to see how much these people are doing for these sweet animals. If only we would all be so caring towards each and every one of our animal friends.
If you want to learn more, please check out their website, it is so heartwarming to see the care, love, and respect these animals are given. Also – there are loads of adorable pictures!
WEST COAST ENVIRONMENTAL LAW is based in Vancouver, BC is a legal champion for the environment. They work hard to create a just and sustainable society where citizens are empowered to protect the environment and environmental protection is enshrined in law.
I have a Criminology degree and have always held a special place in my heart for fighting for those who are unable to protect themselves, like animals and our beautiful planet.
Check out their website to see everything they are really doing to help and the areas they specialize in (like marine conservation and environmental legal aid)
Neither of these organizations are government funded, so your donations really do mean so very much to them (and to me).
My fundraisers are a way for me to give back to causes that matter to me, a way to connect with my friends and supporters, and really sheds some light for me in what can sometimes be a cold dark world. It means more that words can say to see the huge outpouring of love and support from each and every one of you.
And this year, instead of doing some crummy old 1 km stroll or whatever, I’ve arranged a bunch of killer personal challenges that donors can unlock. Here are the details.
Now, whether you want to donate for a good cause, or just to see me suffer. No judgement. I am tired of being overweight, so it’s the summer of fitness for me. It’s up to you to make it happen!
If you make a donation, please be sure to send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org with your email address and shipping info so I can get you those thank you gifts and updates. I’ll also be posting to our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/LegalDonkey/ so be sure to check in there for pictures and updates along the way.
If you have any questions at all about the charities, my fundraising, the challenges, tax receipts, donating offline, or anything else at all, please shoot me an email at email@example.com

I’ll be running this fundraiser until Aug 31 or until I die, whichever comes first. So strap in, the summer of fit fundraising is starting!
Much love to you all,
