Successful 2010 Paws For A Cause

Another September 12th has come and gone and with it the Province-wide BC SPCA Paws For A Cause fundraising campaign. Communities all across British Columbia held events encouraging creatures with four-legs and their human companions to raise funds for local SPCA animal shelters.

While the final tallies aren’t in yet, 96% of the $1 million dollar goal was reached! With Saltspring Island and Port Alberni still to hold their events in the coming weeks, the BC-SPCA is confident that they’ll reach the million dollar mark.

I am both thrilled and humbled that, through the generosity of my family, friends and readers, I was able to generate maximum dollars to contribute to the Comox Valley SPCA. My goal was to raise $1,000 and I hit that number like a bullseye!

To all who donated, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for showing kindness to those who don’t have voices.

Unfortunately, the Comox Valley shelter raised only 45% of their $15,000 goal in 2010, so it’s my endeavour to kick-start things for 2011’s walk in a bigger and better way! If you have any interesting fundraising ideas I could try next year, please contact me directly or leave a comment below.
