I wanted to take a moment to express our gratitude to all of the Weirdos out there. Many of you may not realize the impact you make in the lives of cats and their pet parents, but we do and we want to make sure you know where your money goes and just how many lives were saved, thanks to YOU.
I also wanted to mention… Whether or not you participate through donations, event attendance, bumping, sharing, volunteering or some other avenue, each and every Weirdo is an important and valued member of this community. I personally feel like I’ve finally found the place where I belong. I’ve always felt like a misfit, but in this group, I no longer feel that way. It’s an incredible gift and one I don’t take for granted.
Finally, I wanted to send a HUGE shout-out to our leadership team. Our administrators and moderators make this page the wonderful community that it is. Their tireless efforts to make sure that we find ways to raise the money needed to help N.E. Ohio cats and pet parents in need, that member requests are vetted prior to approval, remove posts that violate the page rules, ensure that everyone is playing nice, that events are scheduled and go well, to trap-neuter-return (TNR) as many community cats as possible and many, many other things all combine to make this what I consider one of the best pages on Facebook.
So… How amazing are you, Weirdos?! Let me count the ways!
