I'm so thrilled to report that the total for the MARS Fundraiser with PayPal and checks received was $2,105.00.  HEGPS rounded that up to $2,150.00   :eclove

Thank you all so much for being so generous and helping such a wonderful and deserving Rehab Center.

HEGPS has mailed a check in that amount to MARS  :biggrin6  and the art pieces have been mailed to Maj.

You are all incredible people!! I deposited a cheque from HEGS for $2150 today. We have another month's funds in the bank, due to HEGS and the many generous people who have donated through Canada Helps, lately. Thank you soooo much!  :eclove :eclove

MARS  :heart Just to clarify the cheque from HEGPS is mostly due to a fundraiser of donated items, most of the actual money came from our wonderful members & chatters. We thank each & every one of you whether a financial donation or your support of our efforts. We can all make a difference for our critters one way or another, TY. :eclove

HEGPS recently issued a press release about the gifts to Maj and the donation to MARS made possible by the generosity of our chatters, forum members, and facebook friends.  The story was picked up by several local news sites.  We were lucky enough to get some pictures from MARS, courtesy of MARS Volunteer Pat Wagar, one on which was included in the press release.   Here are two others I thought you might enjoy:
