SCARLETT'S TURNING ONE!!! <3

My daughter, Scarlett Belle, is turning 1 on the 20th April 2016. It has been bugging me since Christmas that she got so spoilt (in my eyes), and I have decided that for her first birthday - instead of getting spoilt with beautiful clothes, toys and gadgets that she will most likely end up vomiting on, breaking or end up playing with the box, I have started this fundraising campaign in her name.

Growing up my own mom always explained the importance of giving to those in need, be it in clothes, food or our time. And throughout my childhood I volunteered at old age homes, deaf homes, animal shelters, did raffles etc, and I really feel that it gives such a good grounding to a world that is so fake and pretentious now days. Anyone who has met or knows Scarlett will tell you that even at her young age - she LOVE's dogs, so Mike and I have decided our goal for Scarlett is to raise enough funds to sterilise 12 dogs at the Ark Animal Centres Spay and Neuter Clinic in Chartwell. They are currently sterilising 100+ dogs a month, but would be able to do a lot more if they had the funds. There are currently over 600 under privileged dogs waiting to be sterilised, but until the funds come in nothing can be done, and they keep breeding.

So....we are needing R6000 for 12 animals. Please - and I am literally begging you - even if it's just R50, PLEASE rather donate it to this cause. In years to come when Scarlett asks what her first birthday was like, I will proudly tell her that she raised R6000 and sterilised 12 needy animals. I'll also make a book with photos of each of them for her to see, along with the names of those who donated. I'll tell her that because she was born, she saved hundreds of lives without even knowing it.

For those of you who don't know how important sterilisation is, I have included link to an image of how many 2 unsterilised dogs and 2 unsterilised cats can have in a seven year period.....it is scary and beyond sad - but this is not a pity party, so moving on....

Please feel free to share this campaign and help make her first birthday one she will be proud of in years to come.

Thank you!!!
