Confronting Animal Cruelty

$1,065 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 32 people in 13 months
Every year for her birthday, Abby's grandparents give her $25 to "pay it forward" in any way she chooses. Every year she has worked hard to turn the $25 into much more so she can make a greater impact and donate the grand sum to the organization she feels most connected to at the time.

You can watch a couple of videos about Abby and read an article from CNN  to see the impact she's had in the past.

This year she has chosen PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) because she feels strongly about combating animal cruelty. 

In her words, this is Abby's goal for this year's "Pay it Forward" project:

"I want to be able to help as many animals as possible because animals are innocent and deserve to be treated the same way you'd treat a tiny baby. 

I hope you donate because animals are beautiful things that have just as much of a right to live happily on this planet as we do.

I have two cats at home who I couldn't imagine anything bad ever happening to and I wouldn't wish anything bad happening to any animal ever."

Donations will be accepted until February 25,  Abby's birthday!  Thank you so much!

Thank you, Lara and Tim for your donations yesterday. We are so close to her goal and still a month away from her birthday. PETA has offered to share her fundraiser on their website as well! I will capture some video of Abby tonight talking about the reasons she does this every year and why she chose PETA this year. Stay tuned and thanks again, everyone!
