Here’s a message from Hanna:

“If I can only help all the animals in the world you know I would but I am just a human, I can only do so much when it comes to furry dogs and cats. I couldn’t give a lot of money because I am not rich. Most of you know that. With my humble plea, help me help those animals in need.

There are a lot of animals suffering. We cannot just abandon them. All they need is just a little help with their medical expenses until they find a good home. It is not easy for them to experience such abuse from the people who are supposed to love them.

CARA helps by animals by taking them in. They treat them until they can be adopt by a loving family. Of course, this is a non profit organization. They need funds so that they can continue helping animals who have been abandoned, abused and left to die. We ask help together with CARA for any amount that you can donate to help these animals go to a good home.

I want to help them by dedicating my time and effort. I will be swimming 13 hours for all those animals in need. I am asking my friends and all those animal lovers to hear my call. You can donate a fixed amount or pledge per lap. Any amount you will donate is of great help to these animals. It will only take a minute to read the poster and donate.

Thank you very much.”
