87 yr old robbery victim needs help

Thieves rely on an 87 year old woman’s kindness to ROB HER BLIND.

I’m not one to ask for help, unless it is for an animal or for a charity, but something devastating happened to my 87 year old mother and she needs help. 

My mother is one who has helped many people and animals over the years.  She has given or loaned money to friends and family who needed it.  She has invited friends and family to live in her house until they got back on their feet. Even though some people have stolen from her, she has done it many times.  

She is also an animal rescuer.  When the people across the street moved away, and left 20 white cats in the backyard to starve to death, mom fed them.  She trapped many, got them spay/neutered and found homes for them.   I’ve lost count of all the stray, lost or homeless cats, dogs, puppies and kittens that she has rescued.  She’s found homes for the tame cats, and fed, and continues to feed, many other stray and ferals. 

When a feral colony caretaker, had to move to help her terminally ill daughter, mom stepped in to feed the colony every day, for years, until all the cats died.   She still feeds and provides vet care for many stray and feral cats in front of her house.  When some kids found a tiny kitten in their yard, they brought him to mom because they know she will take care of animals.  And she did.

Mom lives on Social Security which, believe me, is not a lot of money. Yet she still donates to charities every month. One of the charities provides water to people living in countries who have no access to clean water.  

But a few weeks ago, a woman came to mom’s house and claimed to be a new neighbor.  The woman lured mom out to the street claiming to have car trouble.  Meanwhile, her accomplice broke into mom’s house thru a side door, and robbed her blind. 

The thieves stole almost all of mom's jewelry and all the money she had in a safe. The thieves wiped out the savings of an 87 year old woman.  (Click here to read more of the story:  https://bit.ly/2Mfr52x

Obviously, she is retired so she can’t work to build up her savings again, and Social Security is not enough to pay all of her bills every month.   She used to use her savings to pay for what Social Security does not cover. 

Now, she does not have that.

I would like to replace the savings of someone who has done so much for so many other people and for countless animals.

Please donate to help replace what thieves stole from my mother.  Thank you.
