Help Out Kimchi

Hi! I am making this GoFundMe page to help out with Kimchi's vet bills. $500 should be enough to help me in covering his consultation fee, medicine, hospital stay, and some of his surgery/additional check-ups. Any donations are greatly appreciated, no matter how small they are.

I recently adopted Kimchi and his friend, Dumpling, from a friend who couldn't take care of them anymore as they owned cats. 
Kimchi hasn't had the easiest life. My friend had found him being attacked by larger birds on her driveway and decided to take him in. A few weeks before I adopted him, he had been attacked by one of the cats in the household. Below is a picture of Dumpling at home.

Kimchi was recently admitted to the hospital as I noticed he started vomiting, suddenly stopped chirping as much as he usually would, and was falling asleep on the perch in the middle of the day. He was a very active and bright bird and these changes left me incredibly worried. I immediately called the vet for an appointment and was told that birds don't exhibit signs of illness until they're in extremely poor condition. I was then hit with the bad news that Kimchi's situation was quite dire and that this wouldn't be something that disappeared overnight.

I've been calling the vet everyday for updates and it is suspected that he had contracted metal poisoning. I felt absolutely terrible as I've only had him for a week at that point. I was told yesterday (23/04) that there is a possibility that he will have to undergo surgery for his crop. Please help me out so that Kimchi can recover well and join his friend at home again. 

Thank you so much.
