Holy moly we're turning 30! As most of y'all know, animal-related causes are close to our hearts. We'd like to celebrate this milestone by raising some emergency funds for the animals at Possum Valley Animal Sanctuary, a not-for-profit association who aims to prevent or relieve the suffering of native and farmed animals.
We came to know Mark and Chris who runs the Sanctuary when we were traveling in Perth. Working both a day job and running the shelter, we witnessed first hand how challenging it is to sustain and care for the rescued wildlife and farmed animals, and how dedicated and (com)passionate these two individuals are. Mark and Chris are always giving their 200% and putting the animals' needs above their's.
Fire at Possum Valley is an ever present threat throughout the warmer months. Bushfires have been know to destroy properties and habitats and taking the lives of countless animals.
With summer approaching in a few months' time, the Sanctuary is in dire need of a diesel generator to replace their current one so that enough water can be pumped to fight a fire when the need arises.
This birthday, instead of gifts or parties, we'd like to request for some funds to help purchase a generator. A new unit, including laying of cables and installation costs AUD$15,000, which is more than what the Sanctuary can afford at the moment. There is no minimum amount to donate, and your every little donation will go towards ensuring the safety of the animals at the Sanctuary should a fire eventuate.
Thank YOU so much for making our 30th birthday a meaningful one!
