Meet Agatha. Agatha is a young, under a year old, black kitten who was hit by a car 5 days ago.
Both her paws are requiring heavy orthopedic surgery, but she’s expected to make a full recovery.
An amazing Samaritan came forward and covered the costs of this surgery, upwards of 5k, to get her attended as soon as possible.
But this money we’re hoping to pay back, and forward for other cats and other causes.
When we know more about the costs and the recovery there will be a funding kickstarter for this sweet angel.
Please please signal boost this. I’ll add more information and links when I have them. And more pictures!

“At the end of the day, I’m doing something that I love. I’m in a band, I sing and the thing that comes with that… I can help charities, I can help people. That is, by far, one of the best things of the job because you can really make a difference on other people’s lives for really not much effort of your own” - Louis Tomlinson.

It’s probably because I just did some translation of Yuzuru’s interview back in 2014 today, but for some reason, I was weirdly very touched to know the reason why he chose Kanagawa rink for his skating class and performed ‘Hana ni Nare’ there.

We all know that Yuzuru has a good heart, but I’m still glad to see that since 2014, every year he spends some of his precious time before the season starts to come back to Japan and do charity events to help those affected by disasters and show his gratitude to those supported him. You can watch/read about his activities every year here: 2014 - 2015 - 2016 - 2017

His actions touched my heart in a very personal way as someone who was very concerned about the 2011 Earthquake disaster, and it warms my heart to know that he’s still constantly thinking about those who helped him and those who are still in pain because of those hardships, that his mind hasn’t changed at all since the day he won the Gold medal:

“…During the time I lost my home rink, I could skate thanks to being asked to do ice shows for a few months. At that time,  Arakawa Shizuka, Daisuke Takahashi, Kozuka Takahito, Asada Mao, and many other skaters planned charity events for us, and thanks to that I was able to come back and skate.

I am not a pro, so I think I cannot do much now, but in the future I want to do charity events to thank and show my gratitude in some way, to not only skaters, but also to people who were affected and suffered from the earthquake disaster.

I’m here by myself right here right now.  Though the gold medalist is only one men skater from Japan, but when I got onto the podium, I’m truly happy that I could perform carrying on my back the wishes of Japanese people and those who supports me from around the world. I wonder if I was able to return the favour to them.”
