I’ll make you a video for every contribution

My friend Martin insisted on donating $20 to Scratching Pad and even for that amount I want him to know where his money went. Long story short, I grabbed a GoPro and went on a short spending spree (video below).

Recently, I’ve been asked by a few people to take in their neighborhood strays. The only problem is that I need to make sure they get health checks, especially in regards to deadly contagious diseases. Every vets check + shots cost around $100 which is more than I can afford self-funding at the moment. (I’m not monetizing any part of the website right now.) If we can raise $300 I’ll be able to add three more cats to the Pad almost immediately. 

Until it gets ridiculous, I’ll give a video shoutout to anyone who contributes above $20 + I’ll publish how the money is spent. As far as I know, this is the only charity who can deliver this kind of instant gratification. Not to say Scratching Pad is better than other charities, but they probably don’t have someone who’s down to make videos all day for no money.

In the spirit of Giving Tuesday, if you can chip in for these cats - click the button and be their hero. 

If button doesn’t work go to: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=Z83F2RCRZK2UL

So I ended up spending a bit more than $20. Apparently that makes me at least 90% better than Kim Kardashian’s charity. 

**UPDATE** We are halfway there. Huge thanks to Barbara, Lori, and Shirley.

**UPDATE 2.0** Thanks to Elizabeth and Elena we are 1/4 away from three cat additions.

**UPDATE 3.0** Gracias to Tatyana and Tammy for their donations. Now just 10% away.

**UPDATE 3.1** Just got an email from Luna. We did it. You guys are the absolute best. This is the reason why I wake up every morning excited to work on the Scratching Pad. 

**UPDATE 4.0** Heartfelt thanks to Jessica for being awesomely charitable. 

**UPDATE 5.0** Thank you Lucia, Tal, and Michele. :)
