This past SundayÂ was ourÂ big walk for the BC SPCA, and from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
With your amazing generosity we were able toÂ raiseÂ $1,265Â for the BC SPCA (British Columbia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). This placed us squarely as the number 3 highest fundraisers in the city. And absolutely destroyed my goal and every other year’s total to date!
To help break it down, the $1265 can do all this for the SPCA and our animal friends:
- Â 18 kittens being fixed (spayed or neutered)
- 15 puppies being fixed (spayed or neutered)
- 80 bales of hay for the small animals
- 187 bags of cat litter
- 2,259 loads of laundry
- 126,500 pieces of printer paper
- 421 bags of cat treats
The participants in the city of Richmond walk raised a grand total of $15,353Â for the animals, so we played a substantial role in the overall fundraising for the entire city! AÂ big shout out to everyone who donated, walked, encouraged us, and helped fundraise.
Thank you so much for all your generous donations and heartfelt support!
It really meant a lot to me (and made a great difference to the animals in need).
- If you wanted to make a donation, but forgot – please let me know.
- If you never got your letter/thank you gift from me, give me a holler and I’ll get it sorted.
- If you want to continue to support the SPCA throughout the year or choosing another animal friendly organization that is more your cup of tea, I have tips on figuring that out for you.
- If you desperately wanted to support me, but forgot… I have the Terry Fox Run for Cancer Research coming up in a couple days and I would love to have you sponsor me there. If you are more in favor of a donation to animals, stay tuned for my next charitable endavour in 2017!
Again thank you so much for your support!
Here are some pics from the big day:
I promised several donors Koa would wear a cat costume – he was fairly accommodating in half agreeing to be an adorable tiger.
Koa gears up early by getting his tail wagging!
We arrive to walk at naptime, so Koa is a bit of a lazy, needingÂ to be carried for some (most) of the walk. Good thing Daddy came with us!
We might have taken a bit of a shortcut to speed the walk along…..but,Â we got a pass on cheating due to the cuteness of my baby tiger:
The walk was in Garry Point Park in beautiful Steveston again this year, so it was lovely!
Thanks again to all of you for your support! I look forward to your continued support with my next event <3
