BENEFITING: IAN SOMERHALDER FOUNDATION
Carol Knight runs Amberwood Sanctuary, a place that she and her husband started back in the 70s. As you can imagine, Carol is much older now and she has a difficult time finding help on her farm. Not only help physically, but help with hay, medical needs, and day to day husbandry of the animals. She is out there every day, doing it herself. I live three hours from Amberwood Sanctuary. I have made the trip to go and photograph her animals. And what animals they are! Her beautiful babies who are rescues mixed of mistreated, abused and/or neglected donkeys and burros. She even has a few other rescued animals in her Sanctuary. She is a non-profit Organization, but has no idea where to start anymore. With the loss of her husband, she is reaching out to anyone who can help her help her babies. I, Jamie, am one of the very few who have been trying to make a difference for her. I've been researching grants, as she is paying for everything out of her own pocket right now and isn't very technologically advanced. I am also handling as much of her social media and marketing as possible, as there is no one else that is willing to raise awareness of her situation. I desperately worry for her and her animals. And this goal may not be as high as it should be, but it's a start. The only start I know. And it's worth a try. I want to be the change that I want to see in this world. I want to help. Please help me fulfill my dreams by helping her keep up on hers.
