We have multiple (three) fundraising pages now set up in the hope that at least one of them will get us some of the help that we so desperately need to Save Bambi. To give you an idea of how tight finances are right now, we completed our studies for our Bachelor’s degrees (we each completed the studies to receive two degrees) and high enough grades to receive honors, if not high honors, and we cannot even afford to pay the fees necessary to pay for us to be given our degrees, or even participate in the graduation that we have worked so hard for as students that returned to college. We both want to apply to grad school, but that cannot be done until we actually receive our degrees and we cannot get financial aid until we are enrolled in grad school. I don’t know how much debt has been accrued through personal/familial loans (that are now tapped out themselves), but it is a lot and so much that until we actually either have money or the fundraisers begin to work I don’t even want to think of the massive debt. I know some people don’t believe in doing so much to save a pet (many members of my own family amongst them), but the pets mean everything to us and really are like our children. Please don’t make negative comments just because you don’t believe in this. It is your right to not support us, but it is our right to believe in doing the best for our pets and those times when we had money we gave what we could to help others and causes that we supported or believed in, never believing that we ourselves would one day be in such need and desperate times.
As I am Bitter Betty number one I will make this about me, until the other two decide to contribute to something more than the name. I am a graduate of UNLV, but am native to California, and while my personality prefers California, my bank account (though quite empty at the moment) prefers Las Vegas. I am quite contrary in my personality, in that I am both quite opinionated, and pretty much an introvert. A bit of an enigma I suppose. I am a huge animal lover with dreams of starting my own animal sanctuary. I love crafting, arts, and music of all sorts, and have many interests if I could just get myself to stay out of pain long enough, or focus on one particular thing long enough, to perfect it. I have been in multiple car accidents (none of which were my fault thank you very much as I was usually the passenger), have been told that I likely have fibromyalgia (but for some reason I can't get my doctors to further explore the issue), suffer from chronic migraines, as well as every other kind of headache that exists, and a laundry list of problems associated with these issues and because of this I can't attack my various interests as often, or as voraciously as I would like, and have been out of work for several years. I'd like to get my own business started so that I could bring in an income while having the freedom that I need in performing a job that allows me to stop and start as needed in order to avoid as much pain as possible.
