As Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts continue, so do acts of kindness. Among those who have gone above and beyond to help others are Kristin Mainor and her mother, Paula Thomas.
Together, they run Texas Sass, a local small business that specializes in embroidery and vinyl on just about anything. They monogram bags, shirts, hats, you name it.
“At least once a year, we like to raise money for organizations through the sale of our products,” Kristin said.
After raising $300 for Mont Belvieu Police Department in 2016 by selling specially made “All Lives Matter” headbands, Texas Sass chose A Life to Live to support this year.
They recently presented us with a check for $525. They raised the funds by selling T-shirts featuring the words, “You are with me even in deep waters,” highlighted on the State of Texas.
“When we saw on the news how many animals were being left behind following all the flooding, it made me want to help animals in need,” Kristin said. “I wanted to do this for A Life to Live because of its no-kill mission. I am crazy about animals, and I feel that A Life to Live loves them as much as I do.”
We appreciate Kristin and her mom going the extra mile to show their support for homeless pets in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. Their generous donation will help us continue providing life-saving services for dogs and cats in our local community.
