“Paint Your Pet” event raised fund in Mister Molsan’s name to Fight Canine Cancer
On March 10, 2018, we held a “Paint Your Pet” event to raise money for the National Canine Cancer Foundation in Mister Molson’s name. The goal: $5000. The incentive: The Beard. I promised the kids that I’d shave if we reached our goal. So, they have been very excited about this mission.
Through direct donations and two t-shirt fundraisers, we had raised $1565. We were doing pretty well but losing steam. So, I asked friends for ideas on how to keep our momentum.
Michele the painter responded right away. She helped out with Molson’s bucket list by painting his portraitlast year. She has also lost dogs to cancer so our story resonated with her. She also does amazing work for other charities like Pitties.Love.Peace. , The Last Dog Rescue, Bella’s Bully Buddies, and many more. She offered to hold a “Paint your Pet” event for Mister Molson’s cause. She donated all of her time and talent and helped recruit people.
She originally found out about Mister Molson through the Fox43 news story by Ali Bradley. Michele saw the story and immediately wanted to help. Thanks to Ali, Mister Molson’s story spread around the world. So, it was extra special that she showed up to support this cause. She is also a dog lover with two of her own.
