      So I've received a few messages asking why I stopped campaigning for my mother's fundraiser, and so I thought I'd address that here.

      If you haven't already heard you can check out @burnie's most recent journal about it, but there were some people headed to RTX who met with tragedy. There is a fundraiser for them, and as their situation is slightly more dire than my mom's I felt it important to step back to let them meet their goal first.

      Once they meet their goal I will return to campaigning for my mom's fundraiser. I'm not saying donations to my mom's fundraiser won't be accepted or appreciated at this time, I just feel that campaigning right now draws money away from those who need the money more urgently.

      I hope you understand. Thanks

      <3 Willow

      Kitten Rescues

      1 month ago

      (See photos at end of journal)
      So earlier this year my mom noticed a stray female cat around her property was pregnant, so she started feeding her and gaining her trust so she could save her and the kittens. Then one day my mom couldn't find her, and she realized she must have given birth somewhere. After searching for a few hours she came back home to find momma cat on her porch waiting for food.

      She was definitely no longer pregnant. So she fed her and then followed her to see where the kittens were. She found them under a neighbor's house. The neighbor was more than happy to see them go so they let her crawl under their house to rescue the babies. My mom (who survives (barely) on disability) risked severe injury to herself to get these kittens, but that's just the kind of person she has always been.

      So she brought the kittens home, and momma came with. Ever since then she has been caring for them, and been in touch with Pet Helpers to get them homes when they became old enough. Due to a recent parvo scare Pet Helpers couldn't help until today. The kittens are now three months old, and super sweet.

      A couple days ago my mom was in the kitchen looking out the back door with her permanent rescue cat, Maggie, and when she looked down she noticed four little furballs on the steps of the back patio. She brought them in, and is trying to gain the trust of their mother to bring her in as well. Though that is not working very well. Still, she is feeding them and they are about four weeks old right now.

      Today, Pet Helpers came by to get the kittens from the first batch, and get the momma whom my mother nicknamed Blondie due to her very light orange fur. They all tested negative for feline leukemia, but Blondie tested positive for Feline AIDS. Pet Helpers can't take her, but they did give my mother some phone numbers to some local cat sanctuaries that may take her instead.

      Feline AIDS is passed through bites, and unfortunately Blondie has a history as a feral cat. Despite the fact that she has shown no signs of being feral since my mother brought her in, and it's unlikely she would resort to feral behavior in the future unless provoked, it's still a risk a lot of cat rescues won't take. Finding someone to adopt her will be difficult, because Feline AIDS comes with great financial need in the later years of the cats life or if it gets a cold or infection.

      Still, my mom won't give up on her. She wishes she could keep her, but she kind of bonded deeply with one of the kittens and had decided to keep him. On her small income she can barely make ends meet as it is, and Wes and I help her sometimes when she can't afford groceries for herself. She spends all of her money on her bills, and food for her cat. She'll buy food for her cat before she'll buy food for herself. She only gets $89 a month in food stamps, and barely $400 a month from disability.

      My father is supposed to be paying her almost $900 a month in alimony, but he's not. He has been in violation of that court order since 2004. He owes her a lot of money, and she can't keep living like this.

      This is a woman who puts the welfare of stray animals before her own. She does housework for elderly neighbors, and despite how long she refused to accept it she has now had no choice but to accept the few bucks they offer her for her help just to make ends meet.

      Still, I've seen this woman give her last dollar to someone at the store or on the street. I've seen her run into traffic to save a turtle from being hit. I've seen this women do amazing things, and never ask for anything in return. She is one of my heroes. She is one of my inspirations. She is one of the strongest, most compassionate, and most amazing women I know.

      So believe me when I say that this is a woman worthy of saving. So please help me by donating to the fundraiser, by spreading the word, and if you can't donate money donate time or items for raffles/auctions. There is a way to help if you look hard enough. My mother always taught me that even when we think we're helpless there's something we can do to save another.

      Please don't let me fail her, because she has never failed me.

      <3 Willow

      Blondie just after she had the kittens. See how emaciated she was?

      Kittens as they were at only a few days old. There were five, but the runt passed away despite my mother doing everything (including CPR when it stopped breathing) she could to save her.

      The kittens at four weeks old. So adorable!
      tumblr_inline_nohg56zvdd1qzvm6s_500.jpg

      Maggie (left) and Blondie (right) bonded greatly, and Maggie helped to teach the kittens many great things like how to steal Mommy's (my mom's) chair when she was in the kitchen.

      My mom with one of the kittens. I think this is Bubba, the one she bonded with. He really loves my mom a lot.

      Signed Grifisms Poster Update

      1 month ago

      thDon’t forget about the signed Grifisms Poster I’ve got up for auction! All proceeds go to save a woman from the clutches of her abusive ex-husband!

      This poster was signed by a lot of RT, AH, & RWBY cast/crew members. It was even signed by the late great Monty Oum.

      The auction ends on August 1st, 2015 at 5am PST (6am Mountain, 7am Central, 8am Eastern)

      Oncethis auction is over I will be raffling off another signed poster. Thisis a Minecraft poster signed by RT, AH, & RWBY cast/crew membersincluding Monty Oum. So follow my blog for more info on that! Each raffle ticket will be $1, and there is no limit to the number of tickets you can buy.

      Iwill also be announcing this weeks raffle item on Wednesday. Iapologize for not posting a new one last week, but things got super busy for me with school since the term was coming to an end.

      Thank you to everyone who is helping with this fundraiser!

      Whether you are donating, or just spreading the word you’re helping in a huge way. Don’t forget that one lucky donator will win a ticket to RTX2016 once we reach the $6,000 raised mark! So spread the word, donate if you can, and I know we’ll reach that goal soon!

      <3 Willow

      PS If you won the AH Playing Cards in last year's raffle please send me a message on here! I can't remember your RT name for the life of me, and my messages still have not returned since the new site was launched. I need to mail out your cards, but the address you gave me isn't working on the USPS website so please get in touch ASAP!

      New Site

      1 month ago

      So I'm really hoping my missing journals, and all of my inbox being removed is a mistake that will be fixed soon. I have no problem with the new site so far, but this is a really big problem that I will have if it's permanent.

      If you sent me a message anytime in the last 24 hours please send it again, because I did not get it at all.

      Signed Grifisms Poster

      1 month ago

      So last year when I tried to do a fundraiser to save my mom I raffled off a bunch of stuff. I sent out most of the prizes, but health/money issues kept me from sending everything to everyone right away. Anyway, some of the stuff I did mail out came back, and despite trying a couple times more to resend it and sending countless emails to winners to find out if their address changed or they messed up the address when giving it to me I've been unsuccessful in getting them their prizes.

      One such prize is the signed Grifisms poster. So I've decided I've done all I can, and so their prize is now forfeit. I mean, it has been a year. So I decided to put the Grifisms poster on eBay for auction. It will go live on July 22nd, 2015 at 5am PST (6am Mountain, 7am Central, & 8am Eastern).

      The poster is signed by a bunch of RT, AH, & RWBY cast/crew members. Even the late great Monty Oum signed it, and so the starting bid for the poster is $25.00.

      There is a "Buy it Now" option, and some may think it's an outrageous price though I will remind you the entire proceeds raised will go to my mom's fundraiser.

      I feel crass saying this, but the poster was signed by Monty which significantly raises its value since for many people this will be their last chance to get something he signed. It breaks my heart to say that, because Monty really was a great person.

      I'm still fighting, though, because I love my mom and that's what Monty taught us all to do. Keep going.

      So keep an eye out for the auction to go live!

      Please tell me what I'm doing wrong. Obviously I'm not doing something right, because my fundraiser is failing. Guys, this is my mother! I'm trying to save her from becoming yet another woman left homeless by her abusive ex-husband.

      Am I not offering good enough prizes for donations? What am I doing wrong?
