I have never asked of you anything like this, so I'm not really sure how to go about it. There's an organisation here in Bulgaria called Open Your Eyes which works with guide dogs, trains them, promotes the need for them, etc. They recently launched a campaign to raise money in order to buy a healthy female Labrador to be the mother of future guide dogs. zabulgaria.org/tr/projects/%D0…
This project is very close to my heart because I myself have bad eyesight, and who knows, I might need a guide dog myself one day! It also breaks my heart that people with guide dogs are still NOT allowed in many places here in Bulgaria! And many blind people, with or without guide dogs, rarely get any help from others...
That's why I think it's great that there's finally an organisation that's trying to teach "normal" people how important it is to have more and more guide dogs, and how much time and effort is put in by volunteers
to train them!
How to donate:
Okay, so they need €350 out of €2000 at this point, but there are just 15 days left. The page is in Bulgarian, so I'm 100% ready for any questions you may have concerning how to donate! zabulgaria.org/tr/projects/%D0…
The first thing you need to do is click on the BIG GREEN BUTTON to the right.
You will need to sign up but it's actually not that hard! In the form to the left you have to fill out your:
*E-mail address (you'll get a confirmation e-mail)
*Password (at least 8 symbols)
*Fill in the symbols from the picture
*Don't forget to put a tick at the bottom, it's the "I agree to the terms and conditions" thing
*The green button reads JOIN
Now you have to go to your e-mail and confirm your registration and you're all set!
IF you want, I can take a screen shot of the pages and write everything in English! Just let me know.
Once you have verified your account, it should log you in automatically. If it doesn't, just go back to the page where you signed up and on the form to the right enter your e-mail address and your password.
The next part is in 2 steps. In the first section of the page, you can choose to get a gift from the organisation in return for donating. If you're curious what the gifts are, let me know and I'll tell you in the comments!
In the second section, you have to choose how you want to pay. The first one is PayPal, it's chosen by default. There are other options but I think the fastest and easiest (since it's in English) is PayPal.Below are disclaimers that they will take your money automatically and ONLY if they get 100% of their goal.
Then you hit the green button at the bottom which reads SUPPORT and that's it! ANY amount of money will help them greatly!!
Again, if you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments and I'll do my best to help you help them.
Oh, and spread the word if you like, it can also help!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
