Our little donkey Myka, and her mother, Mimi and father, Momo, live, I guess, the “good life”! In spite of the rough start that Myka had, nowadays, our animals have it very good. Plenty of grass and grain, all the water they need, room to roam, adoration from their “masters”; vet help whenever they need it.
But our donkeys are hardly representative of the “typical” donkey the world over. Across the world, over 100 million donkeys, horses and mules do the jobs of trucks, tractors and taxis, supporting the livelihoods of some of the poorest communities in the developing world. Alongside working camels, oxen and other animals, this undervalued workforce is essential to the health and economic well-being of millions of vulnerable families.
No “push” from my end! I know all my friends are good hearted and charitable people. And most of the good work you do is likely to never be acknowledged. It’s likely that you don’t look for that.
But I would appreciate it if you would take a few minutes to look at the good work that my personal favorite charity does. Perhaps for some of you their work will speak to your heart as it has to mine, and you’ll become a donor.
If this is “not right for you” at this time, would you take a moment to consider sending information about it to some friends? Or, if you like facebook or any of the other social sites, would you consider giving it something of a friendly “push” there?
Thank you very much!
