Financial Issues

SOS £££ $$$$ HELP

Mom and Dad did a twitter challenge a raised enough to pay one of our mortgage payments. They were two behind, but since then a nother one is due, so they are still two payments behind, Mom says that without a significant increase in donations then we have had it. Since the twitter challenge it has all gone very quiet again. They are still hoping for one larger donation from a wealthy dog lover because the smaller donations are not enough although we really appreciate everybodies help. We are still approaching rich and famous people for their help, but they seem largely indifferent to the situation. We just need one to take notice and feel compassion for us but who? where? we have tried many. If, mom and dad could just get the morgage off their backs then they could probably make it. The interest rate is extremely high and accounts for almost half the monthly expenses. Today  the received bank statement and have only a few crumbs left to live on. We appeal to everyone that knows us to implore the rich and famous to take a look at our blog or even to come and visit us here in Brazil.
We have implored them to fund raise on our behalf not to dip into their own pockets a lot of them have millions of fans who could be mobilised to give a little each. Oh we forgot to tell you there is an article in the National Examiner on dogs in Brazil. http://www.examiner.com its under the pets section

Hi Emmy,
I had to do a little searching to find the article. Here's the exact link:

http://www.examiner.com/animal-welfare-in-national/animal-rescuer-struggling-to-help-street-dogs-brazil

If I had any famous friends, I would call them immediately on your behalf! Have you thought about contacting the tennis player who Guga is named after? If he is an animal lover, perhaps he'd be willing to help ... sweet Guga could help you talk to him!

I happened upon this listing of grant resources for non-profits. There are a few that have international programs: http://staff.lib.msu.edu/harris23/grants/2animal.htm

Hope you're all having a good weekend!
