TED talks went great! I talked for right about 5 minutes. I felt really good about it and personally I think I did a great job. This is my last blog. Maybe I will start it up again next year. Thanks so much to all of you. I love you all. Fairwell.

This is my last blog of the year. TED talks are on wednesday. The last day of school is next thursday. There is so much happening and so many things to do, I am almost done with this project and I can't wait for TED talks, they are wednesday and I'm pretty prepared! I am sad to say goodbye to all of this and all of you guys, but I can't wait to go further with this project. They are taking our computers soon so I am not sure if I will be able to blog after TED talks. Hope you guys have a great summer! Thanks for all of your support and love!

Lately I have been getting ready for TED talks! I didn't get done what I thought I would this year. My project turned into sort of just a support group for Dirks Fund. This does mean that it can make for a great TED talk! The Ted talk will be streamed over the internet if you want to tune in! More details coming up!

Lately Libby, Linsey and I have been working on a fundraiser where we will sell homemade dog treats and dog collars. We have been calling pet stores seeing where we can do our fundraiser. It has been very good and so far we have met a lot of nice people. We contacted Schnucks to see if they could donate some ingredients for our homemade dog treats. We were able to get in contact with Lisa who is the extremely nice manager of Schnucks and she was happy to donate the ingredients. We were able to get everything we needed thanks to Lisa. We also got in contact with Michaels (the art store) and they gave us some coupons so we could get the fabric we needed for the Collars. We are now getting in touch with nice people from many stores such as Kennelwood, No leash needed, and Stay Rescue. We will let you know how everything goes!

Lately I have been looking for opportunities to do a public speaking to spread awareness about Puppy Mills. I am hoping to speak a the Dirks Fund trivia night coming up in April. I am also researching Puppy Mills and contacting the Humane Society. Normally I am not a fan of the Humane Society due to them euthanizing their animals, but they do, do Puppy Mill rescues. I am now working on persuading the owner of Dirks Fund to let me do a public speech at Trivia Night.
