Evan loves cats. After he adopted his own kitty, Macha, from City Kitties rescue in Philadelphia, he wanted to find a way to continue to help the cats they were rescuing. He was only 7-years-old, but he saved his allowance money for several months and donated $46.75 to the charity.

In 2012, Evan's parents matched his donation for a total donation of $220. People all over the country have been inspired by Evan through Facebook and the City Kitties blog, as well as more recently on Reddit and Huffington Post. Many have donated to City Kitties or to their own local rescues to, as Evan would say, "save abandoned kitties from danger!"
