A cause near and dear to my heart - The Bria Fund

The Bria Fund
 
In November 2005, the Winn Feline Foundation announced the creation of the Bria Fund to accept donations for feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) research. FIP is a fatal disease primarily seen in young kittens, with no cure and no effective treatment. Bria was a nine month old Birman kitten who died from FIP in April, 2005. Bria had the good fortune to live with Susan Gingrich and her husband, James Shurskis, in Harrisburg, PA. Susan is a sister of Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, and founder of the Center for Health Transformation. The Center provided a generous contribution to establish the Bria Fund. In 2008, the first Bria Fund projects were announced. You can help fight FIP by donating to the Bria Fund.

Right now they are doing their annual fundraising, which is not doing as well as in the past years.  This fund does make a difference.  If you can please donate.  It is a raffle, so buy tickets once it starts or you can donate a prize, which is what I have done in the past when short of funds.
