R17 donations are especially symbolic since Daisy lived for over 17 years. Any support is appreciated, but we love the idea of R17 direct donations — not only because they have great symbolism for us, but also because these are more affordable for most people.
Direct donations of any amount help us run the Foundation and provide us the opportunity to send shelters extra beds, collars, blankets and cash donations to shelters. We may also use direct donations to assist in the event of animal-related emergencies. These include extremely ill animals that need help that is costly for shelters to fund. Our contributions, funded by your direct donations, even if small, will help the shelters fund these vet bills and special care.
We will allocate as many direct donations made before Christmas 2019 as possible to resources for a number of shelters that we will visit during the Daisy Foundation Roadtrip from Johannesburg to Durban.
