Challenge date: Thursday 19th August 2021
Charity: Animal Welfare League Queensland
Location: AWLQ’s Gold Coast Animal Rehoming Centre
Fundraising Goal: $7,000
This Friday, animal and wildlife lover and social media star, Allan Dixon will close the door on an Animal Welfare League Queensland (AWLQ) kennel, committing to spending the afternoon and night with the centres animals as he looks to raise much needed funds and awareness for the AWLQ.
Not content with calling out to his global followers whilst sleeping in the comfort of his own bed, Dixon has committed to sharing the same conditions as the AWLQ animals for his challenge.
Starting with a bare kennel shared only with a few canine residents, Allan will be calling on the broader community to help keep him warm and nourished as each vital donation will allow the caretaker’s to send in a mattress, blankets, pillows, food, hot tea and maybe even enable him to phone a friend, whilst also securing critical services and products for the animals and shelter.
From 1:00pm on Thursday, Allan will first take on various volunteering duties as he familiarises himself with the centre, and meets the many animals, all desperately searching for their forever homes. On completion of these duties, Allan will enter the kennel which will be locked shut behind him.
Adding further weight to Allan’s Fund My Challenge initiative, he will be shining a light on International Homeless Animal Day which is held this Saturday 21st August.
Throughout the challenge, Allan and Fund My Challenge will be sharing ways to get involved whilst illustrating exactly how and what your donations will be going to.
Let’s help get Allan through the night and support this heart-warming charity and our fellow furry friends.
