Feline Rescue Foundation of Alberta needs our help! Fundraiser at Carries Closet
am the first to admit I am a crazy cat lady.
Truthfully I have a huge heart for all animals, but cats I seem to understand cats a little better and appreciate their antics and personalities.
I cannot think of too many times in my life where I didnt share my space with a cat. Our family always had them growing up, and as an adult, I almost always had a cat. I am the woman that my facebook friends always tag when they see a cat video, because they know I will watch it and appreciate it.
Imagine my delight when the Feline Rescue Foundation of Alberta moved in close proximity to my warehouse, where I operate my funky leggings online business Carrie's Closet. When I would go to fulfill orders, I would always walk down to where they were, and make friends with the cats on the other side of the glass. I would talk to the staff there through the screen door and hear their names and their stories (some very sad stories at times) of how some of their cats are permanent residents since they are a no kill organization, and some of the cats that call FRFA home are not adoptable, but are supported and loved by their kind volunteers.
I learned that all the cats are checked by vets to ensure that they are healthy and they are quarantined until they are cleared to interact with the other residents. They vet bills some months, even though they are subsidized by vets are creeping close to 10,000 in a month depending on what they are encountering. Rent is a few thousand a month, and then of course they need to keep the lights on, keep everyone fed and cared for. So as you can see, even the very basic necessities are extremely expensive.
I offered to do a fundraiser to help them raise some money for the important care these cats receive.
We are opening up the warehouse from 10 - 2 p.m. on Sunday, December 20th and offering all customers 10% off that come shopping that day. I am going to donate 20% of the gross sales that day to FRFA. In addition, for those of you who are not from the Calgary area, or who would prefer to shop online, I will run a sale for two days online at CarriesCloset.ca of 10% off site wide, using the discount code FRFA10 (all caps with a one zero on the end) for both Saturday, December 19 - 20 (two days) and same, 20% of all sales will go directly to FRFA.
Discount code for customer 10% off: FRFA10 (ALL CAPS)
Donation to FRFA: 20%

Or come to the warehouse on Sunday, December 20th from 10 - 2 p.m. and all sales that day will also qualify for the 10% off, plus a 20% donation to FRFA. Address is 1257 - 38 Avenue NE, #Calgary
