Final Fundraising Total :D

It is with incredible happiness that I announce that the fundraising  campaign was a huge success. In total, $2135 was raised by the fundraiser, which exceeded my goal of $2000. The most sincere thank yous go out to everyone who contributed, regardless of whether it was a donation, lending a helping hand, taking part in the fundraising event, or spreading the word. Every cent is going towards improving the lives of injured animals and disadvantaged children and you are helping to create positive changes. The concert fundraiser held at This Ain’t Hollywood on August 21st went even better than I could have imagined, with over $1500 being raised in one night of amazing live music and great times with the best friends and family in the world. A special thank you goes out to the following businesses that donated items to be raffled with all ticket proceeds going towards the cause:

The Augusta House
Booster Juice (Upper James)
Bread Bar
Chicago Style Pizza Shack
Cineplex Cinemas
The Cupcakers
Lemongrass Restaurant
Mucho Burrito (Upper James)
Petsmart (Ancaster)
Swiss Chalet (Upper James)
Try This On for Size

Of the $1070 donated to the Merazonia animal rescue and rehabilitation centre, $550 has gone towards a new otoscope/throat illuminator (for looking in ears/throat), $50 towards much needed batteries, and the remainder will be given in the form of a cheque to be spent at their discretion. Of the $1070 donated to Aldea Yanapay children’s school, $200 has been spent on school supplies with the remainder being given in the form of a cheque to be spent at their discretion. If you would like to be added to my e-mail list and receive regular updates on my trip or just have some questions, just keep checking this space every few days, or feel free to send me a message at
