On October 11th, IMOMM quietly celebrated its 7th Anniversary. 8 years ago Maggie crossed the Rainbow Bridge and although the grief has slowly faded away, a day does not go by that she is not in my thoughts. Her photo sits beside me and my promise to her, I will do my best to keep. I can’t believe it’s been seven years since we started this journey, for a group of just a few, I am proud to say, that we have been able to provide $29,000 in financial support to pets in need. I think that’s awesome! Our blankets and your donations have enabled us to make a difference in a pet’s life. Thank You!
What a year 2020 has been, struggles and frustrations for us all. In a crazy mixed up world, we have done what we have needed and have been able to do. As you know we have had to delay presenting our most favourite fundraiser, the coveted Anniversary Quilt. It’s still a few weeks away yet as we put on the final touches, but we are pleased to announce the name of our 7th Anniversary Quilt to be “HOPE”.
Hope, “a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen”. This couldn’t be truer than for 2020.
HOPE …. that we find our way out of this pandemic, together, that we stay safe and well, that we behave responsibly, with compassion and kindness.
HOPE …. that we will listen to Mother Nature’s warnings and protect our planet and all that dwell on it.
HOPE …. that those who have lost a loved one, animal or human, know they are not alone in their grief and that they are able to honour and remember those lost, and in time to move forward to happier days.
HOPE …. for all animals to be protected from abuse and cruelty, and for harsher penalties and laws for those that do not abide.
HOPE …. for pets that are battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases, and hope that they are able to receive the care that they need.
HOPE .… that IMOMM continues to earn your respect and support that enable us to help guardians and their pets, in Maggie May’s memory.
Challenges lie ahead for all of us, that’s for sure, and together with hope, compassion & kindness, we can be in a better place!
Watch for the reveal of our Anniversary Quilt “Hope” and details on how you can win it while supporting the Maggie May Fund. We love it, as we always do!
