Well-loved psychic medium and spiritual messenger John Holland staged an exciting "Evening to Benefit Homeless Animals" on Saturday, July 21 at Unity on the River in Amesbury, MA. Over 200 animal lovers gave generously to John's Koda Fund, established for the sole purpose of providing emergency medical and surgical care beyond routine and customary services for the animals at the New Hampshire Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NHSPCA).

The evening began with a special appearance by internationally renowned intuitive counselor, educator and best-selling author Colette Baron-Reid, who performed a beautiful rendition of Sara McLaughlin's "Angel," set to a poignant slideshow featuring some of the NHSPCA animals who will benefit from the Koda fund. Colette's performance was followed by a talk about soul and animal contracts by animal communicator Danielle MacKinnon, who was featured in John's book The Spirit Whisperer.

When John took the stage to bring messages from the other side to those present, some audience members were brought to tears, others laughed, but everyone was captivated by his talent for extending conversation to the living from those departed. To raise additional funds during the event, John asked if guests could place a donation of any amount in the NHSPCA envelopes provided, and he would gift a free private reading to one lucky donor. In the end, this impromptu raffle raised over $1,500. The evening was made complete by a special guest appearance by Koda himself, John's West Highland Terrier and inspiration for The Koda Fund.
