Day after day we, as humans, are inundated with pleas for help. My cousin is having a benefit. Please help us raise money for cancer awareness. Give to the United Way. The Red Cross needs you. Donate to St. Jude's. Come to our childhood cancer benefit. Our shelter needs dog food. I want your money on GO FUND me to start an under water basket weaving project because I'm too lazy to get a real job. I don't get the last one........I DO get all of the others. All of them and so many more. This is where you have a choice to make. THIS is where you often hear others say "what I have won't make a difference". WELL THAT JUST ISN'T EVEN TRUE!
Our very first fundraiser as 2 Besties Biscuits was based on the most basic of basics. If 400 people give just $1 we can raise enough money for a whole pallet of dog food for our local shelter. Guess what- it happened. $375 later we were unloading a pallet of food at NEMOHS.
Here are some fun facts:
$1: Feeds 1 dog for 1 day
$5: Buys a toy for a cat or dog
$15: Provides 4 puppies three meals a day for an entire week
$25: Buys one week of milk for a litter of kittens
$50: Vaccinates a litter of puppies
$125: Provides basic medical care for one dog or cat (spay/neuter, vaccines)
$300: Saves the life of one dog or cat (shelter, food, basic medical and daily care)
