Since the doggie surf season has ended, Golden Retriever Ricki has traded her life jacket for a Santa jacket, and transformed herself into a Surfin’ Santa Paws! Her newest fundraiser is a toy drive for the holidays! She adores children and couldn’t think of a better way to combine her love for kids and the holidays.
What about donating a toy, or cash donation toward the purchase of toy(s) for that hard to buy for person on your Christmas list? Or donate in memory of, or in honor of someone/a pet?
This year, with the threat of the H1N1 virus, most hospitals are limiting the number of visitors patients can have, and in some cases only allow parents to visit their children, so not even siblings can visit. Some new toys would be a welcome sight to these children.
The drive benefits Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego, Hurley’s Living The Dream Foundation, and CHOC Children’s Hospital in Orange County.
