A man called Gavin Wright could save through donating to Green Acres.
The paintings of this animal portrait article had been sold (42 exactly) for a year, and putting money aside in order to rescue an animal“I’m a big animal lover and feel very passionate about animal welfare,” Gavin told westerntelegraph.co.uk.
Green Acres was Gavin’s choice since he adopted couple of dogs from the rescue center which its base is in Talbenny.
“I knew that Christmas is there worst time for donations, so in January I decided to raise them some money throughout the year secretly, and donate it to Green Acres at Christmas,” he said.
“I had put a few drawings on Facebook, and had a few people ask me if I would draw their dog or cat for them, so I knew that I could make money doing it. I managed to sell 42 drawings, which was way more than I expected,” Gavin continued.
He told Western Telegraph : « I am going to send the rescue a check with a note but i think that it is a bit boring, so I come up with stuffing a teddy bear with the money ».
“I came up with stuffing the teddy just to add a bit of romance I suppose,” Gavin said.
Mikey Lawlor from Green Acres said the gift was an “amazing surprise.” “Not many things bring us to tears but we just cannot believe the kindness of this act. This really restores faith in human nature,” he continued.
