Roxanne Motamedi, 19❤️❤️ - 2022 (because a gal never divulges her age!)

Roxanne loved dogs more than her shoes, and that’s saying a lot!  And animal welfare was a cause that was always close to her heart.

Roxanne did not want any kind of memorial service, so a few of us thought that getting together and supporting a relevant cause in her name would be a loving way of blessing her memory. We decided that “Best Friends Animal Society” would be the most appropriate recipient. It is the leading animal welfare organization working to end the killing of dogs and cats in America's shelters by 2025. Founded in 1984, Best Friends is a pioneer in the no-kill movement and has helped reduce the number of animals killed in shelters from an estimated 17 million per year to around 347,000. Best Friends runs lifesaving programs all across the country, as well as the nation's largest no-kill animal sanctuary. Working collaboratively with a network of more than 3,600 animal welfare and shelter partners, and community members nationwide, Best Friends is working to Save Them All®.

Donating to this fundraiser will help around 1,600 dogs, cats, bunnies, birds, and horses that the organization cares for every day. Plus, it will help to save the lives of countless homeless pets all across the country through lifesaving adoption and spay/neuter programs, no-kill initiatives, and more.

As you may know, Roxanne’s birthday is July 28th. Meeting the target donation amount by that date will be a great way to celebrate her memory. If you know of other friends and fans of Roxanne who may not have received this e-mail, please forward to them.

We all miss Roxanne's joie de vivre, laughter and biting sense of humor every day. We will do so even more on her birthday!

Thank you for taking part in this memorial fundraiser.

Marjanne, Mark & Yuval
