This past Sunday was our big walk for the BC SPCA, and from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

With your amazing generosity we were able to raise $1,265 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:

  •  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 $15,353 for the animals, so we played a substantial role in the overall fundraising for the entire city! A 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, needing 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, 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

Much Love,
Lynn!
