Reno 7th grader asks for donations to Shakespeare Animal Fund instead of presents for 13th birthday

 On Friday, January 21, 2011, Sarah Osborne celebrated her 13th birthday with her 7th grade classmates from Our Lady of the Snows Catholic School and her friends from Big Air Riding Academy. In lieu of birthday gifts, Sarah's friends donated money to the Shakespeare Animal Fund. The guests donated over $200.00 to the organization.

Sarah Osborne is an avid equestrian and donates numerous volunteer hours to the Nevada Humane Society and St. Vincent's through the National Charity League. She worked on the ornaments for the Nevada State Christmas Tree in Washington, DC, for five years which helped raise money for the wild mustangs in Northern Nevada. She has assisted the horses at Have A Heart Save A Horse by providing treats and grooming sessions. Currently, Sarah is fostering a nine month old Chihuahua who was in need of socialization and potty training.

Sarah hopes to host more fundraisers for the Shakespeare Animal Fund and hopes that more children will consider foregoing birthday gifts in order to help an organization in need.
