Target: Anonymous man who donated $25,000 to the Humane Society of Durham Region
Goal: To commend his extremely generous donation
Recently a young man donated a very large amount to a Canadian animal shelter. This man did this from the kindness of his heart; he asked for absolutely nothing in return. While this man remains anonymous, he must be thanked for his extremely generous gift.
The recipient of the donation was the Humane Society of Durham Region in Ontario, Canada. Prior to the donation, this no-kill animal shelter was struggling financially; they had to postpone surgeries due to insufficient funds. Like most animal shelters, the Humane Society of Durham Region relies entirely on donations and the charity of kind-hearted individuals.
When asked what he wanted in return for his donation of $25,000, the young man simply replied “I just want to help.” This complete act of kindness is a rare event; most people who have donated to the animal shelter have asked for some sort of compensation. Some have asked for tax receipts or to be recognized in the shelter or on the shelter’s website.
There is no doubt that this young man has touched not only the lives of the animals in the shelter, but also the lives of those who have heard of this story. Sign and share the petition below to thank this generous young man.
Dear anonymous donor,
I wanted to say thank you for your extremely generous gift to the Humane Society of Durham Region. While you have decided to remain anonymous, I just wanted you to know that I appreciate what you have done and I hope this letter of thanks will find its way to you.
In a society filled with stories of animal abuse and neglect, I am extremely happy to have come across your story. Your generosity has not only touched the lives of the animals in the shelter, but also the lives of those who have read your story. Your selflessness is a prime example of how we should all be.
I commend you not only for your generous donation, but also for your genuine concern for the animal shelter. Your large donation was not for publicity or for exposure; you sincerely wanted to help the animals in the shelter. Thank you so much for what you have done and I hope others will be inspired to do random, selfless acts of kindness because of you.
[Your Name Here]
