PAWS Chicago is dedicated to building No Kill communities – starting with a No Kill Chicago – where all healthy and treatable pets are saved. Since PAWS Chicago’s founding in 1997, the number of homeless animals euthanized per year in Chicago has dropped more than 80 percent. In 2016, PAWS Chicago found loving homes for more than 5,100 homeless pets. But there is more work to be done and your generosity is crucial to this effort.

Please consider supporting me by making a donation and helping PAWS Chicago provide vital medical care, food and shelter to thousands of homeless pets this year. PAWS receives no government funding and relies solely on people like you to help provide continued care for Chicago’s homeless animals.

Your support will allow us to build a truly humane and compassionate community, one pet at a time. Please consider donating to my cause.

If you are feeling extra generous, please consider sharing my page with your network or check with your employer if they will match your donation to make the most out of your generosity.

Thank you for your support!

*Fundraising for St Jude’s Research Hospitals

*Race Eva is running – Chicago Marathon – October 13

I am a St. Jude Hero! I have chosen to run The Chicago Marathon for a reason bigger than myself by fundraising for the kids and families at St. Jude. I am training to cross the finish line on race day and with your donation we can cross the fundraising finish line together because the money you donate helps find a cure for childhood cancer.

Did you know:

  • Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
  • Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90%, and they won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
  • St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.

Donate today to help me reach my goal. Even when the race is over, the fight to end childhood cancer continues.

Kees E.

*Fundraising for PROJECT AWARE

*Race Kees is running – New York City Marathon – November 3


Hello everyone. As many of you know, I recently returned from a scuba diving trip to the Philippines. I did 34 dives, and though I saw many great things, unfortunately the effect of humans on the ocean reefs is evident everywhere.

As I’ve done in the past, I will collect funds for Project Aware, a shark advocacy, working globally to protect Sharks and rays. I’ll do this by running the NYC Marathon in November.

As I have guaranteed entry to this race, I do not need to collect a minimum amount of funds.  I am however asking all of you, if you have funds to spare, to consider making a donation to this campaign.  In return, I’ll run my ass off, and try not to over post about it on social media.

Thanks for listening!

Hello everyone!

I have decided to fundraise for Smile Train to help give smiles to children in need. Smile Train is an international children’s charity with a sustainable approach to a single, solvable problem: cleft lip and palate.

Millions of children with clefts around the world live in isolation, but more importantly, have difficulty eating, breathing, hearing, and speaking. Cleft repair surgery is simple, and the transformation is immediate. Smile Train’s sustainable model provides training, funding, and resources to empower local doctors in 85+ countries to provide 100%-free cleft repair surgery and comprehensive cleft care in their own communities.

With your help, we can save these children and give them the life-changing surgery they both need and deserve.

Thank you for supporting my fundraiser with Smile Train – together we can change the world one smile at a time
