Believe it or not (we certainly can't!), the holiday season is here! The Audrey's Rescue Angels team is working hard on all of our upcoming events, and as we've been tackling new projects, we've been reminded of just how thankful we are for all that you've helped us accomplish already. It would be impossible to include everything we are grateful for - unfortunately it just wouldn't fit in a blog post! - but we do have a list of some of the top reasons that come to mind!
WHY WE'RE THANKFUL (and don't mind the order...)
2) We are thankful that Audrey's Rescue Angels has been around for TWO years. Our founder, Brittany, started ARA when she was forced to close her retail store, Audrey's, due to an extreme rent increase. Thanks to customer support, she realized that she did not need a brick and mortar to continue to make a difference in the lives of shelter animals. Now, two years later, Audrey's continues to promote animal welfare in a big way!
5) We are thankful for the FIVE items we have on sale - with 100% of the proceeds supporting animals in need. Our book, Rescue Pets of Boston, and fun gifts for your pets can all be found on our website.
130,000) We are thankful you've helped us raise more than $130,000 over the last two years! Whether you attended our annual fall fundraiser, Rescue to Runway: Featuring Boston's Finest, sent in your pictures for the New Faces of the South End Buttery Project, or simply donated to ARA, we couldn't have done it without you!
44) Speaking of our fundraisers, we're thankful for the 44 Boston celebrities that have strutted their stuff (and some cute, adoptable pups!) down the carpet for Rescue to Runway.
1,000) We're thankful for the $1,000 check we had the opportunity to present Danielle Murr with this fall as part of our Foster Funds Program. Danielle's work to keep rescue pets safe and happy inspires us to keep doing what we're doing, and we hope to continue to support foster parents through this project in the future.
1) We are thankful to all of you that equal ONE big Audrey’s Family. Audrey’s Rescue Angels was founded to help make an impact, but could not be sustainable without the help of each and every one of you. By sharing posts, purchasing "Rescue Pets of Boston", attending our events or sponsoring our projects, you have helped get us where we are today. We still have a lot of goals we want to accomplish, but together, when we move towards ONE common goal, we can achieve the dream of creating a more humane world.
