Don't Forget One Day Only Fundraiser for Emma

Tuesday, November 10th
In June 2015, AZGRC partnered with Three Scoops of Vanilla for a one day only, online fundraiser jewelry sale to help with medical expenses for Della, our Taiwan girl with the deformed paw.  

Due to the popularity and success of this online fundraiser,AZGRC and Three Scoops of Vanilla will hold a similar event for Emma, a very sweet senior girl who needed extensive medical attention to help her recover from a life of severe neglect and abuse.

Emma has had several teeth removed and just recently underwent more surgery to remove her spleen.  Fortunately, the spot on her spleen turned out to be a benign hematoma and Emma is expected to make a full recovery.

Three Scoops of Vanilla is offering two ways in which funds will be donated back to AZGRC from purchases made on its website on November 10th
First Option: 
The company will donate $15 back to AZGRC for the purchase of the featured bracelet, which costs $45.  NOTE: The bracelet will be added to the Three Scoops of Vanilla website on the day of the fundraiser.

Second Option: Three Scoops of Vanilla will donate 25% of all purchases of any other items on the day of the online fundraiser.
