WAGS was invited to the Kinetic Academy in Huntington Beach this morning to be presented with a donation. It was so much more than that!

OMG….you guys! I got to start my morning a little teary-eyed. WAGS was invited to the Kinetic Academy in Huntington Beach this morning to be presented with a donation. It was so much more than that. Their fifth grade class participates in an entrepreneurial program called Biz world. They select organizations to raise money for by making friendship bracelets and selling them. They have marketing plans, a CEO, a vice president of Finance etc etc. There were four teams all with fantastic organizations worthy of donations. The group that selected Wags named their business AniBands. The idea to select Wags as their organization all stemmed from one little girl walking into our shelter a few weeks before the project started and really liked what she saw. They had a whole presentation this morning and all four groups stood up to explain why they chose the organizations that they did and what they did to raise the money. AniBands raised the most money! It was so touching to know that we are able to reach people with what we do without even realizing it. This group of 5th graders was so excited to have me there and to present the check I felt like a celebrity! They couldn’t wait until the end to be able to talk to me and tell me all about what they did and how they did it! It was so awesome to hear their excitement and pride in what they had accomplished! Definitely a wonderful way to start the day and knowing that we’re able to reach people beyond our own backyard and make a difference in surrounding communities. Thank you @kineticacademy for having me today, I’m truly INSPIRED to do more and make WAGS even better! #kineticacademy #inspired #community #outreach #bizworld
