Our little friend Opal the human (not Opal the kitten) came by for a visit yesterday with Ellis, her little brother and Jennifer, her mom. For those of you who are new to the IBKC, Opal visits us each year during the FUNdraiser and always brings a donation from her very own piggy bank to give to the kitties. She made her first donation in 2010, when she was only four. You can read the sweet story HERE.
Wylla was busy taking her turn in the phone banks when they arrived, so they joined her on the set, said hello, and took a quick tour.
They helped Wylla with the phones.
Opal took some calls too.
They presented Wylla with their donation, and spilled contents of the jar out on the floor, so we could count all the coins.
$14.77 in all - what a generous gift from a little girl!
Thank you for the visit, Opal, Ellis and Jennifer! And thank you so much for giving all those coins and dollars from your piggy bank, Opal. Your generosity is touching, and each year when you give, you always inspire others to do the same. Thank you so much!!!
And speaking of donations... it's time for another matching donation challenge! Our friend Cynthia is back with another $2500 to match!
Cynthia will match every dollar we donate until we reach that $2500 cap! The challenge will run until 9:00 PM tonight (Pacific TIme).
We're creeping up on $70 squillion right now, and if we meet this awesome match, we'll cruise right past it!
To make a donation and get your dollars doubled, please visit our FUNdraising page.
In case you missed it yesterday, our fabulous posters went on sale in the IBKC shop. They are flying out the door, so if you want to pick one up, please don't delay!
I am so grateful for all the support we've received. Thank you for another huge match, Cynthia. Thank you, sweet Opal. Thank you Jay, for the awesome poster design. Thank you all for giving so much. SO much. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!!!!!
