Why I Participate It is officially my birthday month, and this year, I have decided to donate my birthday to Morris Animal Foundation in memory of my sweet baby, Mason. He had so much love to give, and it only seems fitting to do something special in his name to help other animals in need. What does it mean to donate a birthday? That means instead of gifts, I would like for you to consider a donation to this wonderful organization. Through the end of the year, Morris Animal Foundation has promoted that they have a group of supporters who will match donations dollar for dollar (up to $217,000). It seems like a perfect time to donate-and I want to do even more. On top of that, on my actual birthday, which is December 31st, I will make a donation and match all donations my friends and family have made (up to $500). For example, if we raise $500, I will personally match that with a $500 donation on my birthday. Then, the group of supporters will match that $1,000, making the total impact be $2,000! This is a chance for you to help find cures for illnesses our furry babies face and make your donation go so much further! Oh-and you can also get a nice tax write off before the end of the year. Thank you so much for your consideration of helping this great organization in Mason's name. Mason was blessed with great treatment options that helped him tremendously for years, although we do wish there would have been more options for his anemia in the end. Those options don't exist without research from organizations such as this.
Why I Support Morris Animal Foundation
Morris Animal Foundation supports science that makes the world a brighter place for animals and those who love them (like me). As the global leader in animal health, Morris Animal Foundation provides funding that helps more species in more places than that of any other organization in the world. After the fundraiser we did for Lestat (thank you to those of you that donated and/or attended) Morris Animal Foundation funded a study focused directly on his type of cancer. My hope is to see them do even more research on kidney disease and anemia associated with kidney disease. Every little bit helps!
