SAINTS needed a project done quickly ... Install a new back wall for the shaving shed. I decided to try online crowdfunding. ( https://fundrazr.com/pages/petfundr )
I read the other online stories and thought gee a new wall doesn't sound very exciting or warm and fuzzy like the other stories. I wasn't sure how this was going to go. Our goal was $3,000 and we did okay the first few days. By Monday morning we raised over $1400. And then Darcy Wintonyk wrote this great stories with great pictures Monday morning. http://www.vancitybuzz.com/2015/12/rescue-unwanted-animals-needs-christmas-miracle/
In 5 days 134 donators raised $7,217.
Edited to add Now 174 donators raised $9,252
It means the online paper highlights the story as "trending" because a lot of people are reading it. We got 6200 shares AND our total is now $10,017
