YOU DID IT! Because of you, we reached our goal of $1,500 (and then some more!) and because of our two amazing donors, your generosity was doubled! We cannot express our gratitude enough, but please know that our hearts, and the hearts of our rescued pups, are bursting with happiness!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
Don’t you love a great rescue love match? We do and we’re going to share our Love Matches with you as a part of our Love Match Campaign.
If there’s one thing we hope you know about us, it’s that we exist to rescue Chicago-area pit bulls in trouble and find their forever love match.
And if there’s one thing you’ve probably figured out, it’s that (like most grassroots rescues) we’re often just one or two big vet bills away from financial catastrophe. It costs hundreds of dollars to vet a new rescue pup—and some have medical conditions that require more treatment.
Lately, we’ve been struggling to stay on top of our medical expenses: Capricho’s chronic skin problems…our late, much-loved Roma’s kidney disease… our senior Rascal’s heart condition. And now Capricho needs dental surgery, too!
But something wonderful just happened: two of our long-time supporters have volunteered to finance a matching dollar-for-dollar fundraiser for us. For every dollar that people donate, they’ll match it, up to $1,500, so each donation goes twice as far.
We’re so grateful to our “super-donors,” who include our long-time friend and supporter, Angela (who suggested this!) and our generous pals Loni & Stella of Howard Productions for jumping in when they realized we needed a helping hand.
So, welcome to our Love Match fundraiser. With so many expenses already this year, we want to ensure we can keep saving more pups. To (hopefully) inspire you to be part of this, we’ll be sharing love match stories we’ve played a role in over the years.
There’s three ways to donate:
• Via JustGiving HERE
• Thru PayPal, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
• By mailing a check to Midwest Rescue of Illinois, Inc., P.O. Box 95534, Hoffman Estates, IL 60195
We hope you’ll consider donating in honor of your own special Love Match.
