Hello everyone! For this post I thought I’d provide an update on our fundraising efforts. Starting six weeks ago, we’ve managed to collect just over $500 from nine donors. A big THANK YOU goes out to these people for getting things started! You know who you are! Also, my dad and I recently completed a side job for someone, and set our proceeds aside for Gracie’s stem cell therapy. The proceeds amounted to $800. The total funds raised for Gracie now amounts to $1,337.
Please contribute to our cause, even if its only $1. Your support is sincerely appreciated. As you can see in the above chart, raising $20,000 by next summer is our goal.
Recently I started thinking of other ways to raise money and awareness for our cause. I’m thinking about organizing 5k walk/run across one of the Melbourne, Florida causeways. The event is tentatively scheduled for February of 2013. It will be so cool if I can get someone in our old hometown of Franklin, Ohio to organize a similar event on the same date.
Finally, look what Gracie did last night! She was being a little mischievous. The mattress is quite heavy, so it gives some indication how strong Gracie is. No worries yet about her destroying this bed. Just don’t want her to hurt herself. I may have to come up with a way to keep her from separating the mattress from the frame.
