When Shaun Mitchell found out that his beloved five-year-old boxer, Charlie, was suffering from lymphoma, he knew that the family had to do everything possible to save the dog’s life. They learned about an experimental treatment at a hospital in Las Vegas, hundreds of miles away, but they needed a way to raise money to pay for it. Mitchell painted as a hobby, and he thought he could sell a few. So he put up a sign. Then his wife launched Paints for Charlie, and the project was off an running.
