This is late in coming, but I want to thank you Lisa for your generous donation. I raised $456 dollars toward the cause! Not only am I blessed to have such wonderful family, friends, and coworkers, but strangers (now friends) as well! It's so great that people can come together even in times of economic crisis to give to those less fortunate. I truly am grateful for your charity.

I'm also very thankful for the well-wishers. I do understand that not everyone can afford to make a donation - thank you very much for your support!

That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Hello all,

I'm just posting this message to say that next weekend I will be walking at Northwest Park in Windsor, CT to benefit Walk for Chance, which is an assistance dog training program (funded by the First Town 4-H Veterinary Science Club in Windsor). The money I raise will go toward training a service dog for a local disabled person.

On average, the cost to train a service dog is $12,000. Last year, I raised the largest donation for an individual. I hope to surpass the amount I raised last year.

I know times are tough, and I certainly don't want anyone to feel pressured into donating or feel guilty about not donating. If this is a cause you strongly believe in and can spare some money (and NO amount is too small!), then I would be very grateful for your support.

I have watched many programs on Animal Planet that show assistance dogs in action, not to mention I used to walk for Fidelco. These animals are true saviors to those who need them.

So, please, if you would like to help, you may make a secure online donation at http://www.firstgiving.com/lisatrotta (deadline for donations is Friday, May 29). Thank you very much for taking the time to read this post.
