Hero of the Year
Hey everyone I just received an email from my friend Bernie Berlin. She's busy saving unwanted animals, and recently emailed me with the below info. In a nutshell she's trying to raise money for a shelter through Animal Planet's Hero of the Year prize.
Here's what Bernie wrote:
This has been such a busy 6 months for me with the animal down here in need & I'm still not unpacked from moving.. My sweet friend Carla saw a contest on Animal Planet to nominate a Hero of the Year for those who help the animals. I don't really like contests nor do I consider myself a hero. I do what I do for the animals, because it is the right thing to do, because I care and have been blessed to be able to do it. I wasn't too keen about it, but then she mentioned there is a ten thousand dollar prize. Hmmm... Chin scratch... Blink, Blink... After much thought, I decided, that I could buy alot of dog & cat food not to mention vet bills, raising awareness, and the building of my shelter. Carla and her art group have been very supportive of me and my rescue efforts for years and for that I am truly grateful. I'm grateful to so many, you all included for all your support and putting up with my animal fixation:) Trying to think about the bigger picture for the pets & my cause. I'm trying to get over my embarrassment in regard to the contest, so if anyone is interested in helping me help the animals here is her link with the information she put up to help spread the word: http://www.collagecat.typepad.com/ I guess animal planet is asking for certain info, address, birthday and phone. So here it is if you want it. Bernie Berlin 375 N.
