Guest Blog: Kimberley Nelson's fundraiser for Fort McMurray animal shelter

Here's a guest post from Kimberly Nelson, an animal rescuer and fundraiser.  After she adopted her dog, Rolo from the local shelter in Fort McMurry, she did a Christmas fundraiser.  In 2013 she asked friends, family, and the community to help her out.  Here is her tale of success.

Today is my 26th Birthday and what better way of sharing my special day then sharing the total for Our Christmas FMSPCA Fundraiser of 2013. Why do I love Fort McMurray.. Well look below! First off I want to give a Big Thank YOU to all of the people who contributed to our Christmas Fundraiser by either purchasing an item, donating a wish list item, donating bottles or even just spreading the word about our fundraiser. A Big shout out to my Mom, Auntie Cathy and her dad George for taking time out of their lives to make handmade bone ornaments to sell with proceeds going to the fundraiser AND THEY DONT EVEN LIVE IN FORT MCMURRAY. As well as the lady my mom knows and her daughter in BC who made the fleece tied animal toys from my mom’s scrap fleece and my good friend Nicole Robinson who held a Zumba fundraiser for me with the proceeds going to our total. My goal this year was to collect wish list items and sponsor 3 kennels as last year I only collected wish list items. I thought this was a great goal as sponsoring the  3 dog kennels alone would cost $600.00.
This needs to be written in Caps Locks..WITH ALL OF YOUR HELP WE WERE ABLE TO SPONSOR NOT 3 KENNELS BUT 7 KENNELS AS WELL AS PURCHASE SOME WISH LIST ITEMS WITH THE LEFTOVER MONEY. This truly makes my heart melt knowing how generous the community is. I love Fort McMurray and those who don’t should take a look around at all of the amazing people we have here who give so much to those who need it.
Our 2013 Christmas Kennel Sponsorships include;
Lexi(now at Edson Animal Rescue Society)
My favorite Tripod, Triumph(Adopted).
