Putting Teldra on All Fours Again

You may have noticed that a ad was installed on the left sidebar that is requesting contributions for surgery for a miniature dachshund named Teldra.

Teldra belongs to my daughter and son-in-law and is, quite literally, the love of their life. Teldra was recently paralyzed due to a spinal injury that can be repaired by surgery. Because they do not have over $5,000 to pay for surgery, they turned to a fund raising organization called the “GiveForward Foundation” which collects donations for private causes like this and collects a small fee from each donation for the many services they provide. GiveForward says that they have about 8,000 such projects going on at any given time.

I tested the GiveForward box to the left after we installed it and it works fine, just as the one on their website does. It takes credit card information privately and securely and holds the funds in an account until they are needed to pay for the surgery.

A donation can be any size, even $10. At the end of the donation, you will be asked if you wish to contribute the GiveForward administration fee. That is optional, too.

If you decide to give, thank you very much. If you have questions, you can contact me in private in the question box in the sidebar on the right.
