On the 25th February 2017 Nowzad teamed up with the fabulous Victoria Stilwell for a joint fundraising event in Decatur, Georgia, USA. The sold out event was held at Canine PhD (thank you so much to the team there for donating the venue for free!) which provided a very doggy themed backdrop to the talk given by Nowzad founder Pen Farthing who then signed copies of 'One Dog at a Time'
The star of Animal Planet's It's Me or the Dog, Victoria Stilwell and her family were amazing hosts providing light refreshments and food whilst Pen & Hannah mingled and met new supporters who wanted to join the Nowzad family and make a difference in Afghanistan. Victoria kindly donated all the proceeds from copies of her book 'The Secret Language of Dogs' sold on the night to Nowzad as well - a very kind gesture!
Those who attended, even from as far a field as Alabama and Texas, dug deep and over $2000 was raised on the night to support the work of Nowzad in Afghanistan. THANK YOU so much to all of you.
Do you know of a group or association in the USA that would be interested in hosting a talk by Pen Farthing about the work of Nowzad in Afghanistan? Please do get in touch to discuss your idea further via our contact page here.
