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.
