In retrospect, it's really funny that I said to my little team of We Animals volunteers on launch day "Well, I hope we get some patrons today!" I have been known to exaggerate from time to time, but to say that my life has literally changed overnight is in fact accurate.
In only two days, we already have 200 patrons and are over halfway to our goal!
I'm humbled that people will give so generously because they believe in the effectiveness of this work. What do I do with the gratitude I'm feeling, and all of this financial and emotional help? I do what I said I'd do, and what I always do. Work for animals. Work to make the lives of these individuals visible. Work to end cruelty and injustice. And now, I can do it with the help of others, and with a much greater capacity for reach and for change.
If you're new here, welcome! Take a look around and please reach out with any questions. We'd love for you to join our community of We Animals patrons dreaming big dreams of a kinder world.
With gratitude, and a mountain of motivation to keep working hard for animals,
