My minister, Rev. Carla, suggested that I put up a fundraising page toward raising the money I need for paying ADAI the money for the dog's equipment plus the expenses of traveling to Toledo and staying there for the two weeks that I'd be training with my dog.

So, I came home Sunday and checked out the various fundraising sites out there, and decided to go with YouCaring.com.

My donation page is named, as is this post, An Assistance Dog for Morgan.

Already $265.00 has been raised! Wowsers! I can't tell you how blessed and grateful I feel right now. I just know that I'll make my goal of a minimum of $1000 before I get the call to go to Toledo to train with my dog.

I cannot tell you what a difference this dog will make in my life. Things like handing money or a debit card to a store cashier, to opening doors, dragging a laundry basket to the laundry room down the hall, or even picking up something I dropped: this dog will do it and allow me greater independence.

I am so looking forward to the day I get to meet my new furry helper.

Thanks for reading, and feel free to share my fundraising page.

P.S. If you want to help out ADAI, you can click that link to go to their web page and either make a donation via the blue "Donate Now" button (which goes though PayPal) or click on the "Help Give a Dog" link on the right side of the page for more options for giving. You can even make sponsorship donations toward the care and training of a dog for a specific person, such as myself, by calling the number listed there on that page.
