I would like to take advantage of my privileged situation in this particular day (It's my birthday okay?) to invite you all to donate for this very nice cause.
As most of you might know, in one of my previous lives, I was volunteering for an association that has been fighting, for the benefit of wildlife rescued from illegal trafficking in Bolivia, for more than 20 years now. There, I had a blast of a time taking care of my beloved Spider monkeys and I met a bunch of crazy people - good people. I did not realize the impact this was going to have on my life, I am still learning from this experience and I am so grateful about that.
Today, another generation of crazy and good people keeps on fighting everyday overthere for this beautiful cause. My goddaughter Amélie is working there since January and she decided to stay there after the lockdown of the country (She’s nicer than she is crazy, and that’s saying something) and she sent me an alert.
With the current worlwide Covid.-19 crisis and the recent huge forest fires all around, the Community has been running out of volunteers and the funding that comes with them.
After my experience there, I have been trying to live my life surrounded by crazy and good people (I think I succeed in that) and together put our energy to humbly make our world a better place to live in.
PD: more info about the association
I owe you all a drink and thank you for them
