    Mango is due to come to the UK in a few months once she has done her course of antibiotics

    Mango is now officially British – she has appeared in the Daily Mail Online.

    She’ll soon be eating fish and chips, hailing black cabs and complaining about the weather.

    TO DONATE MUCH NEEDED FUNDS TO THIS YEAR-LONG PROJECT CLICK HERE

    PLEASE NOTE:

    You can still buy prints of Mango hereHOWEVER,  because we now have enough money to transport her back to the UK and because the Year To Help funds are DISASTROUSLY overdrawn the money will go to funding the project and helping more animals.

    (incidentally, if anyone out there knows how on EARTH I can raise more money to keep this project alive till the end of the 365 days please send a message to martin@yeartohelp.com. I’m so over budget I might tip Britain into a quadruple dip recession. I need the advice and a chat with a fundraiser or sponsorship type person. I’m rubbish at it. thank you. )

    Well done Wigan Athletic fans! Mango 1... Man City 0

    Well done Wigan Athletic !

    1. You have my undying admiration! I will try to come up with a suitably fantastic fund-raising idea, and in the meantime will definitely pop by with a contribution. I would take Mango in a heartbeat, but I live in Italy where the fish and chips are probably not up to the standard she is currently being prepared for. If only risotto was more up her street…

    2. Well actually I’m sure she’d eat risotto. And pizza. And gelatto. And pasta. But we may just have to keep her for ourselves over here!

    3. You’re doing a fantastic job! Caring for/rescuing animals is such a meaningful, loving thing to spend your time doing x

    4. thank you Alicia!

    5. Hi Martin, maybe you could get the Daily Mail to sponsor you through the rest of your year? Might be a bit like selling your soul to the devil but you could give them exclusivity on your stories and pictures and they could sponsor you? Just a thought to help with the funding. Raising money is a nightmare, particularly nowadays. 🙁

    6. thank Lis, a good idea! To be honest I’m overwhelmed by the support everyone has given already. It’s been wonderful to see. I don’t really like to take too much money to fund the project – better to give to the animals – but it’s going to be necessary to keep this going. Really appreciate your support.

    7. I am with Lis on this! Try to get the Daily Mail on board!
      I would also recommend to do a search on the 10 most influential/wealthy English people and aks for a humble piece of support. (Richard Branson? Tamara Ecclestone? e.g. A few bucks certainly won’t make a difference for them – BUT FOR YOUR GOOD CAUSE DEFINTELY!)
