Dear Rick,

This time last year you very generously supported my participation in the L.A. Marathon Big 5K benefiting Kitten Rescue and my foster kitten ‘Pretzel’ who was born with seriously deformed and twisted legs. Despite her handicap and resulting limitations, Pretzel found a wonderfully loving forever home where she is adored and cherished!

Won’t you please partner with me again this year in raising money for Kitten Rescue, an all-volunteer, non-profit rescue group devoted to saving the lives of kittens and puppies that have been orphaned, abandoned, are homeless, ill, injured or abused? In doing so you’ll be making it possible for more wonderful animals like Pretzel to get the help they need and to find their loving forever homes too.

I promise to do all the ‘heavy lifting’ (round the clock feedings every two hours, schlepping the babies back and forth to work with me every day, forfeiting weekends to vet visits, and adoption events, etc.) The only thing I ask you to ‘lift’ is your wallet/checkbook! No amount is too small, all donations are tax deductible, and every penny goes directly to the care of Kitten Rescue foster animals.

With much appreciation,

Laura (Charlii) Hawthorne

Greetings Esteemed Donor, H…
Greetings Esteemed Donor,

Here we go again! My 7 year old granddaughter Ryleigh and I will be participating in the March 2015 L.A.Marathon Big 5K to raise money for Kitten Rescue, an all-volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit rescue organization. Last year, with your help I raised over $7,800 to help save the unwanted, abused, and neglected kittens, cats, puppies and dogs of Los Angeles. In the ten years I’ve volunteered with Kitten Rescue I’ve been very fortunate in placing 315 foster critters in safe and loving homes.
Kitten Rescue is constantly inundated with requests for help with animals that have been found abandoned, often injured and left to die, as well as newborns that have been orphaned, and animals that have been subjected to cruelty and abuse. Though resources are routinely stretched to the limit, Kitten Rescue does its best to come to the aid of as many needy critters as possible. Medical care provided to Kitten Rescue foster animals, including vet visits, medical treatments, test, vaccinations, medications, surgeries, rehabilitative and ongoing care (possibly for a lifetime) is extremely costly. Kitten Rescue spares no expense in its efforts to rescue and care for hundreds of animals each and every year, but we can’t do it without your partnership and help.
I humbly ask that you please open your heart (and your wallet) to donate whatever you possibly can by sponsoring Ryleigh and me in the 2015 Big 5K. No amount is too small, and ALL DONATIONS TO KITTEN RESCUE ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE.

Here’s the link to a video *featuring me* describing the day in the life of a Kitten Rescue volunteer:

click on the Optional Processing Fee (in orange) and you can change the fee amount to zero.

Thanking you for your continued support,
Laura Hawthorne (Crazy Cat Lady) & Ryleigh Hawthorne (Crazy Cat Lady in Training)

Dearest Supporter,

WE DID IT!!! With your support and generous contribution to my L. A. Marathon Big 5K Kitten Rescue fundraiser I was able to reach my personal fundraising goal of $7,500. I can’t thank you enough for your generosity and thoughtfulness.

My family and I participated in the 5K this past Saturday and it was lot of fun . . . but more importantly the money we raised will make it possible for Kitten Rescue to save even more kittens, cats, puppies and dogs. These are animals that without our help would face a very uncertain future. YOU made this possible – YOU made a difference!

You’re all AWESOME, INCREDIBLE, ROCK STARS and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

With love and gratitude,

Laura (Charlii) Hawthorne

Dear Rick,

Thank you SO MUCH for your generous donation to KITTEN RESCUE. That was so thoughtful of you. Unfortunately the Los Angeles shelters continue to be terribly overcrowded and the euthanasia rate is appallingly high. Your donation will make it possible for KITTEN RESCUE to step in and save at risk kitties and place them in safe and loving homes. Your support is greatly appreciated!
