Amelia the Flying Cat OFFICIAL book donation event!

Hey there you lovely Kickstarter backers, you! It's sure been awhile, but I have great news!

Did you know that next month is: 

1. When Amelia the Flying Cat first arrived at my house, in a mountain of boxes, 1 year ago? 

2. National Adoption Month 

3. When Bethany Adoption Services is holding their 2018 fundraising gala event of the year- "Changing Children's Lives" - with Amelia included in their presentation? YAY!!

Remember when Amelia the Flying Cat's Kickstarter funded 80 books to be donated to newly adopted children to Bethany? It's (FINALLY) time for that to happen!

Not only will I donate those 80 books at the Gala, there'll be an auction for two original artworks from Amelia the Flying Cat as well, with full proceeds going to Bethany.

Out of all the adoption services, why help Bethany, you ask? 

Not only do they do everything: adoption, pregnancy support, post-therapy support, foster care... But I toured their agency last week, and realized they help with the toughest cases because no one else will. The sad truth is that standard adoption/foster care agencies can't really help extra special needs children or severely neglected, abused, (or worse) kids. What do they do instead? They refer them to Bethany! And Bethany not only finds them a home, but the RIGHT home, and ensures they get therapy when needed.

So in other words, Bethany gives a chance to kids who never had one.

By the way, did you know that Amelia the Flying Cat is being used as one of their adoption therapy tools?! I had no idea! I feel like I'm helping the world. :)

What will the event be like? 

It's a sit down dinner event, semi-formal/cocktail attire. Because this is a fundraising event, please anticipate being asked for money. There will be live music and a keynote speaker. Click here for more info and to RSVP. Deadline to RSVP is October 22nd.

Consider this your official invitation, backers! Thanks again, SO so much. None of this would have ever been possible without you. <3
