In memory of Bill Grimes who looked after me when I lived in Iquitos Peru in 2013, I have decided to raise funds for the amazing animal charity in Iquitos, Amazon Cares, by giving up my very favourite thing - wine - for one month in October. I've seen Amazon Cares work first-hand and I have fond memories of a few of the stray dogs I fed or took for ice cream when I lived at Bill's place, Dawn on the Amazon.
I want to raise $250 and as this is the first time I've ever attempted fundraising, all I ask is for you to 'buy me a drink' in October. The money I personally save from not buying wine, will be donated to another animal charity The Little Pod Association, as in an ideal world I would have a pod of my own but sadly I can't. :(
Thank you all very much!
