The Story of Don, Chelsea & Isaac

After I suffered a head injury in 2009 as the result of a not-at-fault car accident my career as a publisher deteriorated and I eventually closed my business to adapt to a new lifestyle - a person with a disability. Since the collision ICBC has not offered interim funding to help manage bills and I've yet to come anywhere close to a settlement offer. 

Money is beyond tight. I squeak out a meager living doing internet marketing when I'm not taking down-time for my ever present headache and tinnitus. The frustration of becoming a disabled person after having such a promising future had no positive balancing counterpart in my life...

Until one evening in January of 2011 when Chelsea came home with a surprise.

She opened her jacket, reached in and produced the smallest puppy I had ever seen. Weighing only 1lb. and resting comfortably in the palm of her petit hand was our new dog - my first dog ever.  

Isaac required constant love and attention, giving the same in return. He was able to soften my frustration in times of bitter depression and anguish. 

He was perfect for us. 

What We Need & What You Get

Isaac is now just over 1 year old and it's time for him to be neutered. We've consulted with a Veterinarian that we trust and because of his small size there are additional fees involved with his care. (he's 5lb now, about 1/2 the size of our cat) All of the funds requested will be used for Isaac's Vet bills - Any overage in funding will be put aside for any future Vet bills for Isaac's care. (We all know that this will not be his last visit to the Vet) 

Here's the cost break-down:

  • $291 - Surgery (tiny animal)
  • $55 - IV (extra, recommended because of his size)
  • $69 - Blood Work - (extra, recommended because of his size)
  • $33 - Post-op Medication
  • $53 - Tax

Total = $501

As you can see, this fundraiser will just cover the costs - let's hope that the operation is routine and has no complications.

In return for your help, I'd like to thank you by sending you some cute photos if Isaac, and through social media. 

As an internet marketer I have the ability to use my social influence to have Facebook posts liked, tweets retweeted and so on. My FB / Twitter account has a 70 Klout score and I'm a very well ranked user of Empire Avenue (an influence network), truly what that means is, I may be able to help you in some way too. 

The Impact

Currently our household budget can't cover the $500 that Isaac needs for his surgery. We're living on a seriously reduced budget as it is, and to save up the funds ourselves (or wait for ICBC) would take months. 

Without a little help, I don't think we'd be able to afford the surgery. 

Other Ways You Can Help

If you just can’t contribute, that doesn’t mean you can’t help. Please share this Indiegogo fundraiser for Isaac with your Twitter followers and Facebook friends. 

Thank you very much, you have my gratitude. 

BTW - I've dedicated my Instagram to photos of Isaac.
