Help me, Help the Galgos

Hello, for those who do not know me, I'm Nomi and I am volunteering here at GDS for a couple of months now. The plan was to go back next week to my family in The Netherlands, January 11th. However, the dogs desperately still need extra help and I would love to continue my work as a volunteer at GDS. So when I will be in Holland next week, I would be so happy if I could prepare my trip back to GDS somewhere mid-February. However, due to the fact that I have been here for three months and therefore having no source of income as a volunteer. So unfortunately I cannot afford the costs for the flight and everything myself.

So for that reason I would like to ask you if there is any opportunity to help me with this fund and allow me continuing doing something which I am very passionate about! With this fund I hope, with all my heart, that I will be able to come back here at GDS mid-February to continue my work. I find it very, very difficult to ask for help like this, but with the thought that I am doing this just for the welfare of the dogs, I will give it a try. The dogs are my life and that’s all there is to it.

I cannot express in words how important this is to me and how grateful I would be. So I would like to say thank you so much in advance and of course I will keep you informed about everything.

Would you please be so kind to help me anyway you can and anyway you want to?

I really do appreciate this more than I can ever express. Thanks a million!

From Tina (president GDS)
Nomi has been volunteering at GDS now for three months completely self funded but has now ran out of money and has to leave. We really want her to stay because she does such an amazing job, she is a brilliant team player, learns quickly and is good at everything she puts her hands to especially the way she handles the dogs, she has a calming effect about her which not only rubs off on the dogs but also the onsite team. She is a very hard worker, extremely conscientious, always up early, does everything she is asked to do, never complains and even does jobs she isn't asked to do, if she sees it needs to be done she does it. She's been taking some great photos which helps us promote the dogs on the webpage and FB and is now starting to help me take video. Nomi is really taking the pressure of my work load and I feel very much at peace when working along side her, her loyalty and always staying out of trouble means I can trust her 110%. Wherever she goes in life she will make a big difference but for now she is meant to be here with us. Can you help us make that happen?! Please support Nomis GOFUNDME, WE NEED HER, THE DOGS NEED HER - BRING NOMI BACK!

Why do I call her the dark horse (or dark galgo)? Honestly she proved me so wrong, i wasn't sure she would be ready to live onsite but she didnt just make me eat my words, they've literally been rammed down my throat and I've never been so happy about that - Good on ya Nomi
