Target: Restyle Thrift Store Staff Member, Keith Zimmerman
Goal: Thank thrift store for using proceeds to support struggling families’ pets
Restyle Thrift Store is a shop in Boise, Idaho that goes above and beyond to support the less fortunate animals in its community. All of the proceeds collected with retail sales and donations go directly to support the pets in the Boise area.
The thrift store has successfully created a direct link between its business and the people and animals that it is able to help. Instead of sending the money to an animal shelter or organization, the store seeks out actual families and individuals in desperate need of assistance and puts the money toward the pet’s basic needs. The store directly helps those animals with no middleman involved. Community members have expressed that they are willing to spend money at the store because they know exactly where their money is going.
Restyle takes on the responsibility of spaying, neutering, and vaccinating the animals of underprivileged families. Restyle’s Facebook page keeps the public informed about the animals that it has helped with its earnings. The page shows pictures of happy animals that the store was able to save, as well as animals that need to be adopted.
Please sign this petition to thank Restyle Thrift Store for its continued support for animals in need.
Dear Keith Zimmerman,
Restyle Thrift store is an amazing way to help animals in the Boise community. The concept of selling clothing and items donated from the community and then using that money to directly help community pets is a great practice. There is a direct connection between the thrift shop and the community animals. Families are willing to shop at Restyle because they know they are directly helping animals by purchasing from your store. Every day, your Facebook page showcases an animal that you have helped or an animal that needs a forever home. This is a nice way to keep the public informed about where your proceeds are going.
Some families have pets that are struggling to survive because they do not have all the means to take care of them. With your proceeds, you are able to provide financial support to these pet owners. Vaccinations are so important for animal health. Thank you for providing your services to your community. We hope that in the future Restyle could expand to other cities and help animals nationwide.
[Your Name Here]
