*Update* Art Sale: Help Save Ludwig the Hedgehog!

This is Ludwig the hedgehog, and she needs our help! Ludwig was just diagnosed with a tumor on her digestive system and desperately needs surgery to save her life. Artist Allison Sommers is having an art sale to raise money for the expensive surgery.

Here’s how you can help:
Buy Allison’s original art
– Buy prints on Society6 and Etsy
Buy Allison’s book

This Fundly page was also set up to raise funds.

Alison posted this update: Thanks to the overwhelming outpouring of love and support (in less than 24 hours, I’ll add– just phenomenal), we can afford the surgery for Miss Ludwig. She is scheduled for Monday morning. We seriously can’t believe it.

I want to thank you guys, all of you, so very much. The language of gratitude sometimes rings a little hollowly because it’s overused and insufficient; I can’t articulate how grateful and overwhelmed Gerrit and I are for the support. Thank you, thank you, thank you, from the very bottoms of our heart. If we could invite all of you over to dinner, we would.

I will keep the blog updated with her progress and hopefully pictures of a hedgehog looking much healthier in the coming week.

Update 2/8/12: Ludwig passed away in our arms early this morning. We still have some money left over from the extremely generous donations made to help offset her veterinary bills for the surgery; 100% of the remaning monies are going to be donated to the ASPCA in Ludwig’s honor. She hoped to have been able to pay people’s extraordinary kindness forward.

RIP little Ludwig.
