I would like to thank all of my Facebook and Blogger friends who generously donated to Janine's One Person Cat Rescue. As a result of your extraordinary kindness, we contributed $746.50 to Janine Wagner surpassing our goal of $500!
Your support will help Janine continue her mission of rescuing abandoned cats. (You can read more about this amazing woman's incredible work of caring for more than 40 homeless cats at my original blog post.)
I presented the contributions to Janine with this note, "The donation is made in honor of and in the name of my Careers for Your Cat followers."
Janine posted on her blog about receiving the money from us:
"I am overwhelmed by these people's generosity, total strangers... I am touched beyond words, and my spirit is renewed another day. Thanks to all of you that have helped me, and you know who you are...... xoxo......"She also wrote me a personal note and said,
"... I was just floored when I read what you wrote (on my blog), and your readers' comments. You are SO lucky to have the friends and followers that you do!"I totally agree, Janine. I too am touched by the response and good hearts of my followers.
I especially want to thank Jenn Brinkley, a Careers for Your Cat Facebook follower, who moved me to action on behalf of Janine's cause. And to Brian Frum for providing me with the moral support to do my first fundraiser for homeless cats who all deserve forever homes.
Purrs to you all!
