Let me tell you my story, if you guys have the time to read it. I am a photographer from Romania. I was a selfish man who believed all peoples are bad on this world. And all i did was to have fun and did not care about others. I lived my life like this for almost 4 years. Then i did meet a girl and everything changed. She has a non profit organisation for poor children and animal protection. I..., i was an animals too. I did not want to feel affection or to show affection. I rejected her most of the time but she did not give up on me. She showed me how magical it is to help people and animals. I started to feel happy. To feel compassion and the desire to help those who are in need. Especially cats and dogs.
I became a Vegan. And I started to volunteer at her non profit. I did it every day, 8-10 hours a day. I did it because it made me happy, so happy i could not describe it in words. I did fundraising, dog walking, graphic design, feed the dogs and photographed them for adoption. It was like i finally found out what i wanted to do for the rest of my life. Her non profit was not so big but it was special something i never saw before. What was so special you ask? Well, there where no cages and no dog pens. The dogs and cats lived with us in the house, where part of the family. I got so attached to them that all the time a dog got adopted from us I cried. I cried tears of sorrow mixed with tears of happiness because i knew i will miss them but also i was happy that she found a nice family for them. And once again I felt that i want to this forever and never give up. But in love like in life nothing is certain. So, one day she broke up with me. And all my dreams and plans where gone. I became an empty vessel. And all my happiness was gone. Now, i want to start my own non profit. I don`t want to give up. I don`t want to surrender. So... I decided to start my own non profit and for this i need money, money i don`t have. Money for papers that are needed to make the non profit. Money for a website and money to make a fund raising video. In time, i want to build a sanctuary where all animals are part of the " Heroes for paws " family. But for now, baby steps. I know i can do it because i know i do it from the bottom of my heart. My non profit will have the name HEROES FOR PAWS because this is what those stray and injured dogs and cats need, HEROES. And not all heroes wear capes so, i am asking you to be their hero. Help me to help them. Help me change the world and make this planet a better place. Thank you!
