While I've certainly availed myself of this space to ask our readers to do things/help people (and I'm about to do so again), I've never had the chutzpah to get super, freecycle-stylee specific. Here goes.
My favorite animal rescuer, Emelinda Narvaez, of Earth Angelsneeds an air conditioner. Hers broke, and she has health problems that necessitate a/c in the summertime. She also keeps the frailest, sickest animals at her house, and they need a/c too.
Do you have a not-too-old spare a/c, sitting in a basement or closet? I can arrange for pick-up, and will thank you BY NAME in my next column. Please contact me at email@example.com, for fast pick up and tons of good karma.
Rising costs of gas, food, etc.have left her coffers empty. Can you visit her website and make a Paypal donation? Or maybe you'd like to foster a dog or cat? Or take some pet food, supplies, towels, a carrier, crate, or cash to her at Petco in Union Square?
She's there at Petco on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays 7:00pm - 10:00pm and on Sundays from 4:00pm - 8:00pm.
Please please please pretty please. We adopted our old dog, Miika [pictured], from Emelinda, and she was the greatest dog ever...
