Farewell Irma Keller alias "pippa" or "spassvogel"
Animals have lost an altruistic voice and advocate for their protection. During a stopover in Abu Dhabi´s transit Irma fell into coma and, without any chance to survive, died of her cerebral hemorrhage 2 days later in the hospital on Sunday, 28th of November.
Nothing was more important for her than the wellbeing of all animals. Cats had a special place in her heart, needless to say that she was heavily concerned about those living in threatened spots in the wild or even worse, in captivity.
I am her webmaster and the last time we spoke, she wanted me to add a blog to her website so that she can post her thoughts on her website. Unfortunately, she didn't get around to it and so I had to make the first post. Whoever wishes to express his/her condolences, is welcome to comment.
As a friend of irma, I know that she would appreciate a donation to a serious and selflessly caring organization much more than flowers.
I am also co-founder of Bushdrums.com and Irma has been one of the first members. She has supported our efforts right from the beginning and in so many ways that I can say, Bushdrums wouldn't be today what it is, if it wasn't for "pippa".
The least we can do for her, is to accept donations on her behalf to donate to organizations that she supported. It is still unsure which organization we choose because we don't know how much money we will receive, but it will be one of the organizations she supported on her website under her ethics. If the amount is big enough, we may share it up.
Since one of our objectives is the support of organizations that really do a serious and effective job, we (the founders) have decided to administrate the collection and distribution of the money on her behalf. Of course absolutely altruistic (not a cent will be kept from any donations) and in accordance with her husband.

Please note that Paypal charges between 1.9% and 3.9% plus 0.35 Euro for each transaction plus currency conversion charges if your transfer is not in Euro. If you prefer to make a donation via bank transfer, please contact us and we will provide you with our bank account details. However, since our bank account is in Germany, again bank charges may apply, so it remains to be compared which option is more convenient.
The organizations considered for donations are as follows:
