I’m not fishing for compliments here, I think this feedback will be very helpful to us and would help us to know where to focus in 2010.
There are so many people to thank as the year draws to a close. From the people who drive hundreds of miles in a year for us with their smelly, sometimes noisy cargo, to then wait at the clinic for hours for our cats to be called. The people who assist caretakers in trapping, schlepping cats to and from my garage. The people who help at events, standing in the blazing sun, the unexpected winds and the cold and rain at times. The people who attend our fundraisers, shop at Jewel, speak so highly of us and pass on our information. The people who foster our cats and kittens, sometimes insisting on paying for food and vet costs themselves. The people who coordinate food donations for us, save literally tons of newspapers for us and collect old towels for us. The people who take our garbage home to throw out for us – all those newspapers have to go somewhere! The organizations who invite us to their events and offer our information all the time. The veterinarians who work so hard to help the cats that we bring them. The villages who are taking notice of our efforts and are willing to make the step toward changing ordinances.
We say “thank you” a lot. It’s very important to say thank you, it shows that you appreciate the value of what has been given and I want to assure each and every one of you reading this, that we are immensely appreciative of all of the gifts we have been given this past year and we do know the value, and that we could not have achieved so much without YOU!
May this Holiday Season be everything you can imagine and may 2010 be filled with all the good and positive things you could ever hope for!
