An animal shelter located in Danville Indiana was facing a food crisis last month when the fear of running out of cat food could harm their business.
LaDonna Hughes who is the chief director of the Hendricks County Animal Shelter admitted that when she placed a request from donations from concerned citizens on Facebook, the donations for cat food would come in quickly.
However LaDonna was shocked beyond words that not one donor answered her plea for help to get cat food donated to the animal shelter.
LaDonna used her wits to send the request for donations from charities around the world by using the Indianapolis Star website Indystar.com.
LaDonna’s prayers were answered when the request for much needed cat food to be sent to the animal shelter when after the word got out through the local newspaper website spread the word.
The animal shelter in Danville Indiana receives package from concerned citizens around the world as well as money to keep the animal shelter would stay in business for the near future.
In my opinion since Facebook has been getting some bad news that the information that is received on their site has caused concerns about invasions of privacy, maybe the target audience that LaDonna was aiming for left the site for alternate social media sites. You make the call.
Lesson to be learned, Always have a backup plan if the main plan does not work as expected to work.
