Here is a great story about three sisters who are Secret Santa Sisters and wanted to bless Jenny Wolfe in Roseau with supplies she needs to do her rescue work at the Pound.
We have been having fun gathering the items for Jenny's wish list.
When I was looking at Jenny's list, my oldest son (29) was visting. I showed him the blog about Jenny and her work with the Roseau Pound. He noticed on the list a doghouse for the pound. I told him we couldn't afford it ($200) and still get Jenny the other items she so desperately needed. He took out his wallet and handed me $100 towards the doghouse.
The next day I was telling my Mom (who lives in Texas) about this and how proud I am of my him. My Mom said "I will send you the other $100 in the mail tonight. Let's get that doghouse!" :-) Needless to say it's been ordered and is on it's way to the Pound.
Our Secret Santa family has grown to three generations.
Take Care, Joanne
The first time I spoke Jenny I realized what a giving, caring, and unselfish person she is. We spoke on the phone to arrange a place to meet. She was very excited to get things for the dogs and cats.
Through tears she asked, Why me? Who are these people? We met at the Humane Society in Golden Valley. Despite the rush of the holidays and the long drive to the cities, Jenny brought a group of dogs with her, so they can have a better chance at adoption. Again, she asked Why me? I told her to keep reading the Red Lake Rosie Blog.
So Jenny, why you? Because of your unconditional love of animals, how much you help them and save lives!

PS. We will still get your additional items to you.
