So here we are: this is the time we hope you’ll dig deep and be generous by donating as much as you can. No amount is too small and no amount is too large! We’ve come a long way, you and me, since we first met. Trust me when I tell you that every dollar you donate will go toward bringing one of these 51 goldens (me included) to America.

GBR knows a fundraiser for $70,000 is a huge deal and won’t happen overnight, but I told them not to worry because I know you’ll help. I’ve come to realize that GBR supporters are beyond kind and generous – you’re splendiferous! Don’t feel you have to do it on your own – reach out to family, friends, neighbors, and get them involved as well.

Donating Options

On each page we’ve visited, there have been links to donating; however, using a credit card may not be your thing. I’m going to tell you the different ways you can donate or help:

  1. For credit card or Paypal, use this link: I Want To Help…
  2. Check: make checks to Golden Bond Rescue and mail to P.O. Box 25391, Portland, OR 97298. Write on the check it is to help the dogs in China.
  3. Hold a fundraiser of your own and donate the proceeds.
  4. Instead of birthday presents, ask that donations be made to Golden Bond Rescue’s China Fundraiser.

Grand Prizes

Two local artists, Betsy Charlton Powell and Nyssa Johnson, have kindly donated as two grand prizes original paintings of your dog based on a photo you provide. Below are samples of their talents. Note: These are not the paintings you will receive.

If you win Ms. Powell’s prize, your dog’s portrait will be painted in oils.

If you win Ms. Johnson’s prize, your dog’s portrait will be painted in water color.


Rules to be eligible:

  1. All donors’ names will be entered into the drawings for both Grand Prizes.
  2. For every portion of $100, your name will be entered. For example, if you donate $25 your name will be entered once. If you donate $150, your name will be entered twice and so forth.
  3. Names will be drawn for the Grand Prizes once the goal has been reached.
  4. Winners will be notified by email.

Weekly Prize

All donors will be entered to win a GBR T-Shirt. Drawings will be held every Friday and winner will be notified by email.



Thank you for taking this walk with me. And, thank you in advance for helping to get us to America. Hope to see you soon.

Love, Ike
