THE STORY:

Hello Facebook Friends,

I created this fundraiser to help fund the non-profit organization Wildlife SOS in India.  Its main goal is to aid wildlife by conserving, protecting, and rescuing animals that are in desperate need of help.

There was an article recently posted on the Yahoo webpage about an elephant named Raju who was imprisoned for 50 years.  During that time the article states that he was emaciated (starved), in pain, and lived with spiked chains around his legs which ultimately became infected.  He was rescued by a team of conservationist and upon the time of his rescue proceeded to cry, for he knew his time of cruel enslavement had come to an end.

This is just one of many incidents that happen to these majestic creatures all over the world, including the United States.

Please help me in funding this organization.  I know this sounds cliché, but together we can make a difference in the lives of these wondrous animals on their way to recovery.

There is a song by Matthew West called "Do Something" in which he states:

"If not us, then who
If not me and you
Right now, it’s time for us to do something
If not now, then when
Will we see an end
To all this pain
It’s not enough to do nothing
It’s time for us to do something"

Let's do something, together!!!  Every little bit adds up so please don't feel like you're not giving enough.

To show you the significance of what a small donation can do I've gone ahead and done the math.  I have 297 Facebook friends and if EACH ONE of us donates a minimum of $10 then that would be a total of $2,970!!

I set a goal of $1,000 for this donation website, so to see us exceed that goal would bring so much added value to the rehabilitation of these well deserving creatures.

For more information about the Wildlife SOS organization and Raju the elephant, I have added links below for your convenience.  You too can create a fundraiser. Take a leap of faith, reach out to your family and friends and help this and many other organizations or charities that make a positive change in our world today.

 

Thank you!!

Emma Fuentes
