My ringworm eradication fund

DCblogger's picture

Dog and mistress have contracted ringworm. Normally this is the sort of information that I would spare readers, but ringworm eradication means a load of new expenses. There will be the trip to the vet, grooming, replacing the dog's bedding, replacing grooming supplies (his brush must be contaminated) and a list of other cleaning tasks. This is no great matter, but the total will run to something like $200.

Now if you are living hand to mouth, please do not send me anything; but if you are in a position to help out, that would be wonderful. All I need is 10 readers with $20 or 8 readers with $25 and we can take care of this. So, if you are in a position to do so, please contribute to my ringworm eradication fund.

I am figuring $100 for the vet and medicine combined, the rest is for replacing his brush, replacing his bedding, special doggie shampoo, and also cleaning supplies. I will need white vinegar to rinse him, and to mop all the floors in the apartment. I will also need a new bucket and cheap towels to dry him with. The towels will have to be thrown away afterwards, because they will be contaminated. Ringworm is not worm, it is a fungus, so I have to destroy its habitat by cleaning like a fiend.

I can't figure out how to add info to the WePay page, could you email me tips if you know how?

... I don't have my WePay password. But I'm sure it's possible, and they also have an interactive chat feature, so if you ask them, I'm sure they'll show how. (I think there is a landing page that is not equal to the donation form per se, and that's where the explanation goes.)

due to the swift generosity of Corrente readers we are only $55 away from meeting my goal of living ringworm free. Thanks so much to all who donated.

I'd like to try to get the WePay page linked to directly to make one less barrier to it.
