A week or so ago, I was on Facebook when someone posted a story about a dog named Holly that had recently been hit by a car. The driver of the vehicle fled the scene afterwards, and fortunately was later apprehended by authorities. So far, the driver hasn’t claimed any responsibility and Holly has been making a slow recovery. The driver claimed that Holly is “just a dog” and therefore shouldn’t have to pay any of her medical bills. This makes me sad and further causes me to lose faith in humanity as a whole.
The family of Holly is asking the general public to help out with legal fees and medical costs to help Holly make a full recovery. My heart breaks when I read stories like these and it only encourages me to continue doing what I do with my charity efforts.
I’m asking you, friends and family members, to help me help Holly. Even if it’s just one dollar. Or if you have extra dog toys, blankets or food lying around that you could send to her. If you have anything to donate, you can donate it right here.
In addition to that, the Mariners kick off two series at home before they go on the road again. They play the Texas Rangers and the Anaheim Angels and I’ll be attending five games out of the total seven that they’ll be playing. For every baseball that I snag during that home stand, I’ll donate one dollar per towards helping Holly with her medical bills and legal fees. It’s the least I can do and hopefully it makes up for the irresponsibility of some people in this world.
