“Little Boy Blue” Inspires T-Shirt Fund-Raiser

Posted on December 1, 2012


tshirtHigh-school journalism students in Person County, North Carolina, have begun a fund-raising campaign to help homeless dogs following a Skype “visit” with Little Boy Blue author Kim Kavin.

Person County is home to the high-kill shelter where Blue was saved by a local rescuer named Rhonda Beach. The new fund-raising campaign at the local school will benefit CARE, which is the local rescue group that Beach operates. Year-after-year statistics show that Beach’s group saves far more dogs from death row than the taxpayer-funded shelter itself.

The students are requesting a donation of $25 per T-shirt, payable through Paypal. Again, all proceeds will benefit CARE.

If you’d like to support these kids as they try to make a difference in the community where Little Boy Blue was saved, you can order by e-mailing teacher Phyliss Boatwright at boatwrightpa@roxborocommunityschool.org. Payment for T-shirts is through this Paypal link.
