Danielle Hamilton has been working with animal rescues since 1998. She started fostering heartworm positive dogs, and quickly took on the role of publicity representative to increase adoptions and awareness of animal rescues in the area. Danielle has been sharing her creativity and ideas in the online fundraising communities since 2000. Her specialties are creating new ideas geared specifically towards animal rescues and humane societies while tweaking old ideas to make them work for unique situations.
Danielle is an active member and moderator of HumaneFundraising, a Yahoo group that focuses on fundraising and publicity for animal rescues and non-profits. Danielle was also a guest forum speaker for the No More Homeless Pets’ Forum through Best Friends in June 2005, where she continued to share her ideas and fundraising strategies with fellow rescuers.
Danielle can usually be found sitting in front of her computer searching the web for new fundraisers and twists on old ideas. When not in front of her computer, Danielle is most likely playing with her two sons (ages 11 and 9), watching Food Network or cooking with her husband. Since her husband is an Army officer, she may soon be moving to a town near you! Her recent moves have included Ft. Hood, TX, Auburn, AL and West Point, NY! She currently resides in Maryland.
