What a Great Week!

Dear In-Sync Supporters!

Wow!  Another amazing week comes to a close and we have a lot of great information to share with you!

Let's start with Monday!  At the start of the week, we reported the best garage sale ever--especially since it was our first garage sale ever at our Wylie Walmart Supercenter! Click HERE to learn how great our event was and how much we raised!

On Tuesday, our Who Am I featured our fearless leader with  her adorable Franklin!  While we knew everyone would easily guess who the person was in the picture, we figured you'd probably didn't know exactly how special the month of June was for In-Sync Exotics!  Click HERE to learn why the month of June give us a lot to celebrate!

Wednesday & Thursday:  And now for the news everyone is waiting for...

How did In-Sync Exotics do in the Twive and Receive competition??!!  

What was our final placement?  How much money was raised?

All great questions, but first...

You should know that around 8:00am yesterday, we only had a handful of donations.  Our initial goal was set for $3,000 and it looked like it would take all day to reach that amount.  All that changed  shortly around 9:00am--that's when the donations came in fast and furious!!  It was exciting to watch.  If you were following us on Twitter, then you know we had a running commentary as to our placement throughout the morning.  First we'd be at 13th place, then 14th place, then 12th place, then back to 13th place, and well, you get the idea!  At 10:50am we had to raise the goal bar from $3,000 to $5,000!  

More exciting news!!  We not only exceeded our first goal of $3,000 but we also exceeded our second goal of $5,000!!

How much did we raise?  Well, we raised $5,455!!  Our final ranking dropped from our all time best of 11th place to 15th place--out of 231 non-profits vying for top honors!  Not bad for our first Twive and Receive, right?  You can see the final rankings HERE. Thanks to our supporters, there are a lot of people out there who now know that there is a terrific wild animal sanctuary in Wylie, Texas!

We humbly thank the 113 donors who contributed towards the care of our exotic wild animals; the 211 people who "liked" our page; and the 34 page tweets that went out on our behalf to a lot of  followers!  Thank you all very much!

Tomorrow is another exciting day for us as we are hosting our Big Birthday Bash!  Shipping boxes have been coming in all week containing exciting gifts for our animals!  For the last few days we've been getting ready for the BIG event.  According to the weather reports, it looks like the weather is going to be great for our visitors! So be sure gather your friends and family together and make tracks to In-Sync Exotics, this Saturday, starting at 11:00am!  For more information, please click HERE for our flier!

Again, thank you all very much for supporting In-Sync Exotics -- we truly have the best supporters ever!  Hope to see you this Saturday!  And remember, if you cannot make the event, you'll want to check back with us next week for some exciting pictures and videos of the event!
