Amazing Online Fundraiser!

SAINTS needed a project done quickly ... Install a new back wall for the shaving shed. I decided to try online crowdfunding. ( )
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.

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


Lol..whatever " trending " on vancity buzz sounds pretty cool.

What a wonderful and generous response a HUGE Thank You to such great supporters


Coolest part is that I just found out today ... on Tuesday we were "trending" on vancity buzz. Over 5700 people have now shared shared SAINTS story on facebook and twitter. Thank you to all the volunteers that shared the story.
It worked



Incredible. It's heartwarming to know there are so many special, caring people out there.


WOW! Thank you all. Our generous supporters made the barn animals (and workers) very happy
