Hello again, friends.
Thank you for the support that you have bestowed upon Geddy today. When I got home from work, I scratched him under the chin for each of you. He promptly began chewing on my Steve Madden boots, quite obviously in protest against the fact that you couldn’t all be here to get big, wet kisses on the nose.
A few friends, mostly Sam, have insisted that we set up a way for people to contribute to Geddy’s recent vet bill (see this post for more information) without spending several hundred dollars on one of two guitars - my only assets.
So, if you’re into that sort of thing, here’s this:
(Or try this link if that button doesn’t work)
Here are some other organizations that are very well worth your time, energy and financial contributions. Please consider supporting them before or as well as our situation:
The Mustard Seed
Doctors Without Borders
Anyone who donates to Geddy’s vet bills will receive a 4x6 glossy print of his super cool xrays, and any other photos of him that you would like. Supporters in Victoria will also receive a personal visit from The Working Man himself, at your home or place of business, during a time that works for everyone (mostly you).
Email me if you have anything to say about what we’ve got goin’ on, or if you know how to minimize pet/exam/money stress. firstname.lastname@example.org
Hey, I don’t make a lot of money but I just donated $10 to help this terrific person help her wonderful dog. I don’t know Jessi-Anne (although I did draw a picture of her cat a while back), but I do know the stress and pain, the fear, that can accompany vet bills. It’s not just a financial stress, which is terrifying enough on its own, there are also the complicated feelings of not being able to look after and care for a life that only has you to rely upon for its well-being. It’s brutal, panicky stuff! Anyhoo, there are 4000 of you following me for dog pics, presumably because you like dogs you don’t know personally. So if any of you want to help out, please do.
