Middle School Student Raises Funds for Great Lakes Rabbit Sanctuary

An eighth-grader raised $1,040 over a year's time for the Great Lakes Rabbit Sanctuary and presented the gift to their Board last weekend. The GLRS is a wonderful sanctuary providing care for abandoned, and neglected domestic rabbits, and adopts them out to forever homes. According to the news article in the Ypslanti Courier "Holly became inspired to help after volunteering at the sanctuary one day." She was creative in her goal to raise the money since she designed and crafted bunny charms out of clay. "I looked online at Petfinder to see all the current bunnies up for adoption. I based each little charm off of a real bunny," she said. (Photo credit: Ypslanti Courier)
