Help Izzy rescue animals from the pound!
Every year in Australia alone, a quarter of a million beautiful, loving, dogs and cats are destroyed because they are no longer wanted or loved.
Isabella's donating the funds she raises to a rescue group run by volunteers called Claws 'N' Paws Rescue. They rescue dogs and cats from pounds, sometimes when they've only been given hours left to live.
If you're in the market for a furry companion remember to 'adopt' don't shop. Check out PetRescue to see thousands of adorable puppies, kittens, dogs and cats that are waiting for their forever home. You can enquire about becoming a foster parent to a four legged friend too. Yet another way to save lives!
See Isabella's written plea below. If you can donate please do, if you can share her cause too even better.
Isabella's already exhausted the ink supply in the printer twice. Run out of glue numerous times, overcome the nerves to approach strangers and business owners to discuss what she's up to, and ask in a very sweet diplomatically correct way if they might like to help or donate. Plastered notice boards and bus stops with posters, and flooded the local streets with flyers. Izzy's also been busy taking orders for loom bracelets from people donating at her stepmum's work, writing beautiful thank you notes, and personally designing the cards with doggy cartoons.
She's found the time to do all of this in between juggling school, homework, projects, band, flute practice, swimming squads, math tutoring, listening to her parents nag her to clean her room, and being an all round fabulous kid!
A big thank you to Cactoblastis Mexican Kitchen at Neutral Bay for also placing one of Isabella's collection tins on their front counter. Check these beautiful people out if you're hungry. http://www.cactoblastismexican.com
A ginormous thank you to each and every one of you that has helped Isabella in reaching her goal. This hard working, passionate little lady was true to form and quickly bumped up her target as soon as she hit it. She'd like to save them all. Unfortunately, we know that eventually we're going to have to tell this very busy, very tired, little chicken that she needs some rest. I suspect that won't go down so well.
If you'd like to help Izzy rescue as many animals as possible from death row before mean mummy comes in and tells her she can't keep on saving the world please donate and share Izzy's story.
Thank you x
In other news, Isabella who normally feels very uncomfortable asking for things decided to put her discomfort aside for the benefit of animals stuck in the pound. A nervous Izzy worked up the courage to present her speech to her principal and run some ideas by her. The result, a transcript of Izzy's speech going into the school newsletter and a collection tin being placed in the front office for those willing to donate.
This will be the second collection tin Isabella has managed to get placed out there. Pizza Inn at Gosford has also kindly displayed Isabella's story and placed a tin out for donations.
As long as there are animals to help this little lady is going to keep on fighting. Stay tuned x
Isabella's keeping busy and cooking up schemes to help her raise more funds for furry friends. Unfortunately homework tends to get in the way. Lucky she's got Toby to help ;)
A big thank you to everybody that has already donated. There's always a super excited little voice yell out from the bedroom alerting us to a new grand figure. You absolutely make her day every time a donation comes in! This little lady would like to save the world and with your help she's getting that little bit closer.
Thank you x
