About this campaign

I started a small shelter for strays in 2002. Over time, almost the entire area of my original residence became a home for the rescued fur babies.

My human family and I live on rent across the street

Things went south for me in 2011 but I held on despite dwindling resources and health. I really could do with some help right about now.

EMPATHY was started to help the strays no one wanted. It has been a home for them and should have outlived me as one. Unfortunately, it is now in ruins. I desperately need your support to revive it and keep it going.






This was MeeMee aka Kapush ...


Kapush-jpg

Kapush is an affectionately coined derivative of 'kapaash', which stands for a kind of soft, downy variety of cotton in my language, Bengali.

That's how he was,when I found him on the street. A fearless little ball of cotton guarded by a stray dog of all creatures.

Kapush brought so much love and joy to our lives - until he passed away in an accident before he'd even turned two.

I started a stray shelter in his memory and called it EMPATHY. And I created Kapush.Net (now Kapush.Org) later to keep his legacy running.

WHY EMPATHY NEEDS FUNDING NOW ~

Empathy has been self funded, always, with half the earnings from my job as an Assistant Professor in English. Unfortunately, this did not leave me with much savings.

So, when problems cropped up five years back, I tried to tide over the financial crisis through content writing. I was recently featured in WriteWorldWide.Com as one of the Top 14 Successful Non-Native English Freelance Writers.

This is my main site, Kapush.Org, this, my writer site, KapushContenT, there is this amazon associates site on Cat Litter, and this is my Portfolio.

The continuing stress gave me Fibromyalgia, however. It is a form of chronic muscular distress. And last August, I slipped a cervical disc which left me partially incapacitated.

I can no longer write content for long hours without risking permanent disability.

Part of my home that housed the shelter was in bad shape and had to be demolished since I could not afford a renovation.

Demolished Shelterjpg

The orange arrows/texts show how it used to be before being demolished. Now, just an empty space overrun with weeds.

The shelter animals are suffering; and that's something I cannot bear to see. I built it to help and rescue stray cats and dogs, abandoned pets and kittens, and sick and aged animals - and I need to keep EMPATHY running for them.

FINAL WORDS ~

If my story resonates with you, I'd really appreciate your buying a shirt (or making a small donation, perhaps) to help me take care of my fur babies. Thank you, from all of us :)

ABOUT THE DESIGN ~


Just something inspired by a few lines of T.S.Eliot's poem, The Waste Land.

The KP logo stands for KapushPrints (predictable, eh?)

Thanks again!
