As many of you know, back near Denver we launched a fundraising campaign on indiegogo.com to help us fund the rest of the Walk. We set a goal that would carry us all the way to San Francisco, with some funds left over to donate back to pet therapy and animal rescue. So far, we have raised over $6,500 and it has been truly humbling. We are less than two days away from our deadline, and still $900 short of our goal.
This project has only been possible with the support of friends, family, and generous folks that we have met along the way. While we try to not fret the bottom dollar, funding is a necessary element of this endeavor. We know that we have had a positive impact on many people and communities that we have met – and some that we only know online. The work we are doing to promote pet therapy, animal rescue, community service, and living with passion is invaluable to us.
Like any business or service, this project only exists because it is valuable to the community at large. That value has been expressed in every smile, every wave, every warm bed and home-cooked meal, and every dollar that people have donated to help us keep going. Without your support, we would never have made it this far.
We only have 800 miles left to walk, and only two days left for our official fundraising drive. If you want to help, please donate or – more importantly – share our project with your friends, family, and co-workers. With your help, we will reach our goal in the next 36 hours! And to those of you who have supported us – with your kind words, your open arms, and your hard-earned funds – we cannot thank you enough. All we can do is keep working to spread love, light, and positivity to as many people as possible.
For now, we are in Cedar City, Utah getting ready for another therapy visit this afternoon. If I have time tonight, I will get another post up with some more stories and photos from the last week of shenanigans.
Again, thank you for your support. Thank you for reading. Thank you for showing us that what we are doing is valuable, and benefits our community.
