Gallagher family donates to Humane Society in honour of late daughter
After the tragic loss of Brittany Gallagher, who passed away on January 31, 2016, her family has found a way to keep her spirit alive.
The Gallagher family raised $1,409 through the sales of pin and decals in remembrance of Brittany.
The Mail spoke to Brittany’s mother, Brenda, who explained why donating to the Drumheller & District Humane Society was a clear choice.
“Brittany’s passion was animals. She had snakes, dogs, cats, and all kinds of animals. We needed a wonderful celebration of her life and this brought happiness to our family as well as others.”
Brenda also spoke on Brittany’s kind personality, “She was a ‘be your own kind of beautiful’ kind of girl. She had that saying tattooed on her and it was her life motto. She loved everybody and didn’t judge, didn’t gossip, she was just a beautiful person.”
The family has decided to continue this fundraiser annually for the Humane Society.
“We would just really like to thank the community. It was quite a bit of money for just a sticker and a pin,” says Brenda.
