Please remove if i shouldn''t have posted this on here -BUT i was so upset when i saw this and if i can get some donations sent to save this poor cat i will have at least tried myself .
Its on chapelhouse persian rescue site http://www.chapelhouse-persians.co.uk
Funds are needed for treatment of a badly injured cat at a vet practice -- the cat, we are advised, will be put to sleep this Tuesday if we do not generate the funds we said we would raise. It isn't a threat by the vet practice so please, sending us a barrage of 'how can they do that' type emails will not help as all it does is generate more admin for us -- and we cannot criticise the vet for this -- it is a simple funding reality that affects all vets the same as it affects rescue. They, like us, have done their best but the reality is they cannot carry on without the fees being met.
Sadly our appeal which has run for about a week has generated only £10 and we need £600.
Of course we cannot save all animals and this case is 'touch and go' anyway so this may be why people are not giving to it. But a decision needs to be made tomorrow about whether the vet can afford to carry on caring for this seriously injured Persian. See our Donate page to locate the appeal for 'Miel'.
Cannot Afford a Donation?
Not everyone can afford to donate to 'good causes' and in that case (or even if you do also donate!) can we please ask that if you are shopping for any items for your home and family, you join 'easyfundraising.org.uk' and support our Rescue each time you shop?
Because that way, you are giving, a real sum....and it costs you nothing to do it...and it stops us begging and cajoling for income which is demeaning and demotivating...
We know you think this will be a faff! I thought to too (says Rescue Manager) but it ISN'T! It is easy and effective, in fact it is THE single most effective fundraising initiative we have ever seen!
A large number of retailers supports non-profits via easyfundraising.org and it is extremely simple and effective.
In fact ONE supporter has generated around £50 of income for us in just two weeks....
All you have to do is sign up to easyfundraising, choose CPR as your cause of choice, and then every time you shop for something please look to see whether or not an easyfundraising retailer offers that item.
You will be staggered how many retailers are signed up to it and most of what you usually buy will be available through the service.
Just keep going through the easyfundraising.org portal to visit your chosen retailers and those retailers will give a % of the sale to the Rescue.
I cannot over-emphasise how quick and easy it is, and you get the satisfaction of seeing that you have achieved real income for your non-profit. It is not at all onerous or fiddly.
We are sure that if even 30 people regularly did their household shop through easyfundraising, our days of begging for funds would be over, and we could spend our time telling you about the good work achieved instead of trying to raise funding.
Please, please do it?
