Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I'm Yuko and these are my cats, Bean and Chloe. I'm asking for a donation towards this campaign to support me with flying my pets back to Hong Kong where I am from. Please kindly read the story below.
As an international student who studies alone overseas, I found it difficult handling the loneliness and bullying that I experienced. After being involved in a long term abusive relationship, I hit my rock bottom and thought I could not carry on for any longer. It was the lowest point in my life and it still sends me chills. At that time, my friend gave me two kittens from a litter that his cat had just had. These two cats are Bean and Chloe.
Bean and Chloe were there for me when I was at my lowest point, when no one was there for me, when I was feeling sad enough and even considering ending my own life, they were my protective factor. They were the ones that I would be so excited to go home to see. They motivated me and eventually I became happy and healthy again. I started eating and sleeping properly again.
My landlord has recently changed his mind and decided that I'm no longer allowed pets. I am honestly completely heartbroken as I'll have to be separated from my babies. My home is in Hong Kong and despite my family's willingness to care for my cats until my graduation next year, we do not enough funds to fly my pets back. I'm graduating in a year's time and will be able to go back to Hong Kong then to be reunited with them.
I hope you could kindly help me achieve the goal of £1200 as that's the quote that the pet transfer company has quoted for my cats. I would be deeply grateful if anyone could help as I'd love to be able to reunite with my babies when I'm back in Hong Kong in a year's time.
Thank you x
