Greetings friends and family!
As many of you know, it's been a tumultuous year for our family. We laid to rest our beloved Ginger and we rescued one lucky Penny. We cried, loved, remembered, laughed, and survived.
I have a beautiful moment to share. Grab some Kleenex. My 10-year-old son Bradley had been keeping the late Ginger's bowl in his room, filled with treats, since that sad day last summer. When it came time for him to feed his new Stray Rescue dog, he emptied out the bowl, wrote "Penny" on it with a Sharpie, and offered it to his new friend. Through the tearful blur, I popped five pieces of Nicorette into my mouth, and truly, genuinely appreciated my son's sincere bravery and kindness.
That same bravery and kindness radiates from everyone at Stray Rescue of St. Louis. Stray Rescue is truly dedicated to saving dogs from the most unimaginable depths of tragedy. Stray Rescue gives those dogs an opportunity to survive and experience the comfort of human kindness.
I've committed to running with Stray Rescue's Team Running Buddies in the GO! St. Louis 5K. Please consider helping me reach my personal goal of raising $500 to help support the dogs in their journeys from horror to happiness.
Thank you for your generous support and compassion--you are a hero and you have made a difference today.
