Animal Protectors Fund Drive

Remember this post about my son's fund drive for Animal Protectors? Well, I am proud to report that the fund drive was a huge success! Ian collected more than 650 items for our local animal shelter! :) He was thrilled to be able to take all of the donations to the shelter, and while he was there, he spent some time visiting with the animals.

Ian was interviewed by a reporter for our local newspaper, and last Sunday his fund drive was the cover story in the newspaper! We were also contacted by a radio station who is interested in an interview with Ian. Ian is shocked by the media attention. His response: "This is getting out of hand, Mom. This wasn't about me. It was about the animals who need to know someone cares about them."

Melts my heart.
