On March 10, 2016, Connecticut promoted Fairfield County Giving Day…a 24-hour period when regional non-profits compete for prizes and donations of $10 or more. We are so pleased to announce that the CVH Foundation exceeded its goal of $13,000 which included gifts from 17 different states. Your sentiments, support, pictures, and butterflies lit up Facebook & Instagram and helped us garner so much support for the Sanctuary. Our hearts are overwhelmed by your kindness and our gratitude is beyond words. Thank you for making Fairfield County Giving Day such a success! We hope you enjoy this video that celebrates “Kind Like Catherine” pictures shared with us on Facebook.
