Hello all, my name is Ryan Watkins and this is not raising money for me, but for my fiancee. Her name is Mallory Melton, and she has loved and fought for animals and the enviroment since she was a very young girl. She loves every animal, of every kind. But it is not just that she loves them, it is that she wants to protect and understand them. She studies them at every oppurtunity, jumping at every chance to understand the creatures she cares for and how to save them. She is currently attending College here in Texas, and is devoting all of her studies to this goal. That brings us to the cause. She now has the oppurtunity to study abroad in South Africa and learn firsthand in an oppurtunity that can not be matched in educational and personal value. This is a once in a life time chance for her, and she deserves it more than anyone I know. She works constantly towards furthering the cause of wildlife preservation, and this will be an excellent stepping stone for her. That being said, we can not get her there alone. I work in law enforcement and attend college, she is also a fulltime student and employee. Together we are working to get here there but any help will go along way. Times are tough these days, and I know that most people have plenty of things to worry about on their own when it comes to money. So, if you can give to help me fulfill her dream, then God bless you. If you can not, then God bless you anyways haha. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Have a wonderful day.
