Animal Shelter Fundraising
You may have noticed at BISI we have a number of MUFTI days throughout the school year, where our students dress to a theme and have a lot of fun; but at the heart of the MUFTI days is usually a charity we are trying to raise awareness of and funds to donate to. In February we held a bake sale in aid of a local animal shelter (Project Paw-print Istanbul ) which some of our staff members have been involved in raising awareness and funds for. Most recently a number of our students visited the shelter during a weekend, which we shared with you a couple of Newsletters ago. Following the bake sale and MUFTI efforts, Ms Elemara has shared below how the money raised has helped the cause.

With the funds raised during the valentines mufti and bake sale, we managed to buy the following for the shelter animals;
- flea treatment
- internal parasite treatment
- immune boosters
- fungal treatment
- specialist food
- ear mite treatment
All of this has helped approximately 40 sick cats and dogs, so it has had a huge imapact. Thank you to the BISI community for making this possible! We still have a sum of funds remaining, which we hope to use for specialist vet treatment. If you would like to get involved, donate or adopt an animal, please contact Ms. Elemara, Ms. Frigeri or Ms. Newman at BISI.
