2010 Meisha’s Hope 10 Day $10,000 Challenge Raises $12,404 for AIHA/IMHA Research
The 2010 Meisha’s Hope 10 Day $10,000 Challenge was held from September 6 to September 15. This online challenge raised $12,404. All money raised went directly to the Meisha’s Hope AIHA/IMHA Fund #338 at Morris Animal Foundation which sponsors studies on Canine autoimmune/immune mediated hemolytic anemia.
The anonymous matching donor who issued this fundraising challenge initially issued the Challenge for $5,000 but was so pleased by the response to the Challenge that the matching donation was raised to $6,000.
The Meisha’s Hope AIHA/IMHA Fund #338 at Morris Animal Foundation was started by Joanne & David Dickson in May, 2002 after the death of their beloved mixed breed dog, Meisha in November, 2001. In the years since the creation of the Meisha’s Hope Fund it has raised over $275,000 and sponsored or co-sponsored 18 studies on Canine AIHA/IMHA.
