Years ago when I was a little girl growing up in an impoverished neibhourhood I started taking care of any and all the strays that I could because if it wasn't me-who whould ?-and my dream was to somehow fund and run an animal shelter.
My boyfriend and I, along with a friend
of ours started a fashion/tailoring company called Sigma Fashion. When disaster struck: one of my two cats, a black european cat called
Hugo,was diagnosed with Feline Infectious Peritonitis(FIP) and I had
to quit my current job to look after him and the company and
right then and there decided that any meagre funds we had left and
anything that we made would go to funding and treating him as best we
In Hugo's memory we dedicated the Alpha Line because no matter where he is, he will firstly be in our hearts and that is the reason the line is in 3 colours – black as a tribute to him, silver because we cling to the proverbial silver lining and hoped that he'd make it somehow with the treatment we could afford and lastly gold because he was the ray of sunshine in my life and I know that wherever the little budy ended up he's looking over us and keeping an eye out.
I need money to keep my business alive and I know that maybe you think that this is something minor compared with all the other campaigns, but if you can just help me a little I know that life will give you something back in exchange, like you did. I need more time to raise the business, but I have no money left. So, if there is any chance to help me out I would be so grateful.
