You might be wondering why I pulled a 250-pound tire 100 miles around Central Park from July 14-23. Or why I’m locking myself in a cage in a dog shelter in Florida from August 17-19 as part of #ClearTheShelters. My goal is to raise at least $5,000 each for 100+ animal shelters across the US through my charity, Jordan’s Way.
Don’t believe I’m doing it?!? Tune in to my livestream on Facebook
I’ve done a 13-mile tire flip before. It’s time for new challenges.
I’m raising awareness that small animal shelters that don’t get government funding need anywhere from $75K-100K per year to keep providing food, medical care, transportation, and shelter to rescue animals.
These shelters are run by caring individuals like you and me, and want to see their animals land in a fur-ever home where they can love and be loved for their entire lives.
Who knows - an animal in their care today could be your pet tomorrow!At least one shelter in every state will benefit from money raised here.
I know even more shelters want to get involved, and I won’t turn anyone down. And, I’d love to see us be able to give $50,000 to every shelter involved. $5K is just a bare minimum.I have shelters emailing me every day hoping I can help them.
When my dog Jordan came into my life, she was 3 years old and had been to many shelters. I didn't save her, she saved me. During her final days, she battled cancer that spread to her heart. Those were the most painful days of my life, but even then, all she showed me was love.
After her passing, I made her a promise. I'd help pets in need so that they could live meaningful lives spreading love and joy into the hearts of the people that adopted them.Please donate generously to support all the shelter owners who are doing the hard work every day to save animals. With your help, I know we can change the game for these shelters.
I'll be collecting the funds through my Jordan's way charity and then delivering them out to all benefiting shelters. I'll keep you updated along the way! Since I'm a 501c3, donations might be tax-deductible for you, and I'll email out receipts separate from GoFundMe.We’ve done this before - check us out delivering a year’s worth of food to a shelter in Arkansas:Imagine if we could do this in every small shelter across the nation!
