Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are hoping to raise funds for our 2 beautiful Akita Inus' travel for our upcoming move to Japan.
We are a couple that met in London during uni, and have moved to The Philippines for 2 years after graduating. There we found Akatsuki (red) and Yamabiko (brindle) and fell immediately in love. Though we knew the logistics about their travel back to the UK would be a challenge, we braved through them as we simply can't part with the 2. They have been our life and joy. We have spent all life our savings with all arrangements needed to get them back home to the UK safely with us. Fast forward to now, due to unforeseen circumstances we are now looking to a move to Japan for work alongside tying the knot. Living and settling in Japan has always been our dream, and this opportunity might only knock on our door once. However, we can't imagine it being complete without our fur kids. As the move itself will take a toll on our finances, never mind the wedding, we humbly ask for assistance on the expenses we will need to make sure these 2 goofballs make it to Japan safely and happy.
There's been so much tears already shed just with the thought of having to rehome them as we simply can't afford to fly them again at this moment, nor do we have someone in the UK capable to look after them and arrange all that is needed for them to travel until when we are ready to have them flown. We can't take them with us on the same flight as we are still yet to find out our final placement, (which will only be decided by the company a week after landing there) and would then need time to look for a suitable apartment. When we have secured all this, only then can we have Kat and Biko flown in, we hope this would not take too long but predict would take about a month.
We are hoping to raise funds that will be used for their boarding and travel arrangements with a trustworthy company (flight as cargo, documentations and vet certificates) whilst still in the UK and after arriving in Japan, which will cost approximately £5000 per dog.
Please help us in making sure our family stays together through this exciting yet challenging new chapter of our lives.
Mika, Taran, Kat and Biko
