Hello there! I am beyond honored to have been thought of for this very special fundraising opportunity. I am not so unlike the pets that receive love and care at UPAWS. I have spent most of my life feeling like I didn’t fit in, like I was a stray. 5 years ago I spent time in shelters for domestic violence and was homeless. I had some pretty amazing people help me get back home to the UP and I have made it my mission to pay it forward. I was rescued at my lowest point in my life. The community I grew up in, they saved my life. It is an immeasurable gift to have a second chance at happiness and to have a place to call home.
Through a few of the businesses I have started, we have provided free meals for Easter and Thanksgiving, an Angel giving tree for over 200 local children, free furniture and household items to victims of house fires, and we have led fundraisers for many community members in need.
I am more than willing to help UPAWS with any of their endeavors because I strongly believe in promoting what you love. Where there is love in any form, there is hope for a better world, a better life for all of us… Humans and our fur babies alike. So yeah, I’m getting locked up. I hear there is a trophy going home with whoever pulls in the most donations towards their release… love and light to all, but I want that trophy.
