BENEFITING: ST TAMMANY HUMANE SOCIETY
EVENT DATE: Apr 07, 2011
In relation to the stark lack of no-kill shelters worldwide, I am fundraising for one of the best no-kill shelters out there, the St. Tammany Humane Society. Since I was young, I have always held a special love for animals, and a deep respect for the people who give them a second chance, which is the reason for this fundraiser.
In addition to this, I am fundraising in connection with a last wish made by my friend, Hector, who very recently died of cancer. Hector always loved his animals, and was adorable when he was with them. It always seemed like he had been transported to another world whenever he sat with his dog on our porch.
It is because of both these reasons, my love for animals and Hector's wish, that I am now fundraising for a good cause in his name. In his sixteen years, he taught me the pure love between man and animal, as well as showed as the stellar heart of those that have been touched by the love which animals can share with the people around them.
I hope that together, we may help the STHS speak out for the voiceless and help keep one person's memory alive. I know in my heart that this fundraiser will honor his amazing life as well as the principles he believed in.
Furthermore, as a tribute to his continued support of my writing, as well as the art of my brother's good friend Kenny, we are handing one very special and lucky donor sixteen different prizes, the identity of whom we shall announce next year at the end of this fundraiser. Consider it a friendly little contest to lighten up the nature of this project. Donate now! The list of prizes will be posted soon. Stay tuned and let's do this for the animals!
