The Story

Ginnilee has Fibromyalgia/Chronic Myofascial Pain, Diabetes and Crippling Anxiety, and is now homeless. She is also building an organization called GentleHugs4Paws, where chronic pain sufferers will be able to receive help in adopting an emotionl support animal after reaching 501(c)3 status. The goal of GH4P is to pay the adoption fee for a therapy animal, give the recipient a gift card to a pet store for a starter kit and pay the 1st vet visit for young animals so they can get their rabies shot.

To do this, however, she needs to find a new place to live, so she can post information about signed books donated by authors  to raise money for GH4P and its goals.

I'd like to thank all of the people who "like" my page on Facebook- support is awesome! Still in a holding pattern at $3,896; let's see if we can start bringing it up past $5,000, my halfway point.

Daibhi & I are still w/our friends in Sharon, MA, but I need to find a place by October 1st due to a no-tenant law here in Sharon. Poor Daibhi will miss his playmate Mango the ginger tuxedo catk though.

Ok, so I changed a few things about this fundraiser- now that I'm homeless, I'm concentrating on finding a new home where I can get the book auction going for GentleHugs4Paws; helping others to adopt their own emotional support animal is very important to me because I know what it's like not to have a special companion who gives me unconditional love.

Daibhi is the most important part of my life- he gives me love, snuggles with me when I'm upset or not feeling well (basically pinning me down to make me rest) and I give him love as well as food, nummies, water and kisses. He's brought my blood pressure down, gets me out of my crippling anxiety attacks and having him near makes me feel less alone.

Yes, I need to get my Disability, but I also need to get GH4P up & running, networking with shelters, vets, pet stores and the people who need a special someone in their life. In order to do this, I need to have a home where I can get the fundraiser for GH4P going as well.

Please help- it means that a lot of people will have someone who loves them and gives them the support Daibhi gives me. Thanks!

I've added some pictures of my darling sweetheart Daibhi- he keeps me going and the primary joy in my life. He's an emotional support cat, and he does so much for me and is pure love in purring, black & white form.

And one of the reasons I'm running this fundraiser- to keep us together in the same house. I don't know where I would be without him!
