We raised an unbelievable $36,950 through all of our fundraising activities this month including IG live streams, 50% of group chats, 5% of merch sales, raffles, auctions and direct donations. Koala Puffs donated $3,050 on top of all that to get us to the $40,000 goal. THIS IS AMAZING! THANK YOU EVERYONE!
This year for my birthday, I am running a campaign to raise money for a few different causes. I chose these organizations based on my passion and values, suggestions from all of my followers, and current events and the need for change.
The goal was to raise $40,000 total by the end of June!
100% of all amounts donated directly will benefit the organization(s) selected.
Thank you for all of your support and generous contributions!
