Update on Kindness Challenge (1 July)
In a word, you guys are awesome! How awesome? Why, $128,172 of awesome! Yes that’s right, as the calendar hit the 1st of July and our Kindness Challenge Appeal came to an end, you have ensured that we will be able to purchase all of the essentials to get us through winter including but not limited to over 1 tonne of fruit and veg, 100 new tools, 50 fruit trees, over 500 bales of hay, 5 new shelters, solar panals and a 4WD Utility Vehicle. You guys are awesome, incredible, marvellous and so much more and our sincere and heartfelt thanks go to each and every one of you. We cannot tell you just how touched we are by your kindness and we cannot wait to get out there and make the fruits of your efforts come to be.
Update on Kindness Challenge (27th June)
A few weeks ago we called upon your generosity again. An ambitious undertaking for a small but very passionate team, we launched the $100,000 Kindness Challenge and put our faith in the universe, or more, put our faith in the kindness of others. As always, we’ve been taken aback by the overwhelmingly response and we reached our target with almost a week to go. More than a thousand thank you’s for your support – we honestly couldn’t do what we do without you.
But it’s not over yet. In true Edgar’s Mission style, we’ve decided to push the boundaries for animals and extend the target to another $20,000. We’re raising the bar of kindness.
We’ve released a new $10 perk starring our cute-as-a-button buddy Gerald. You can choose to help us make Piggy Paradise safer with rubber matting, golden straw to keep the piggies snug as bugs in rugs or internal lighting for our rescue vehicle ‘Kindness Van Mk II’. Plus, we are ooooh-so-close to fully funding our solar and 4-wheel drive vehicle!
Along with our sincere thanks and the knowledge you’re helping make the world a kinder place for animals, in return you’ll also be emailed the adorable electronic photo book, ‘A day in the life of Gerald’. Warning: the chronicles of this energetic and endearing explorer will give you that all-over warm and fuzzy feeling!
Update on Kindness Challenge (26th June)
You beauty! We’re blown away – we’ve just reached our $100,000 Kindness Challenge target. Thank you so much to everyone who has kindly donated and shared this campaign – we are truly humbled by your support and belief in us.
How does it feel to reach our target? Well, we’re over the moon, and our new friend Gerald is over the pillow. But it’s not too late if you want to help, you can still donate here.
And stay tuned for another update in the coming days!!
Update on Kindness Challenge (21st June)
Why is Cheesecake so happy?
Because she has a nifty new shelter stacked with mounds of soft straw to laze in. And as we write to you, another shelter is being built. Watch the video to see an update on what your donation has helped us do.
Our mission is kindness
Edgar’s Mission provides care and a safe haven for hundreds of farmed animals every year. Many of these animals come to us in the winter months, as lambing season sets in and babies enter this world in the thick of the bitter cold. Lambs just like Anne of Green Gables.
With our animal care staff pushed to the limits as animal numbers increase, our veterinary supplies waning, the mud making hard work of cleaning and the need for more tools arising, our to-do lists and to-buy lists grow with every passing day.
We need fruit, vegetables and hay to keep those hungry bellies full, new shelters to accommodate the growing herd and a reliable 4WD utility vehicle to deliver feeds here, there and everywhere. Sadly our current utility vehicle has lost the will to go on. Our mission of kindness not only extends to our animal friends, but to all – including the planet. So we’re also looking to reduce our carbon footprint by investing in solar energy – which will be part of our education outreach for school visits.
Edgar’s Mission is a registered DGR (Charity). This means that any donation over $2 is tax deductible. ABN 75001 177 836.
Can you help fill the tanks of kindness?
Already this year seven orphan lambs have arrived at our gates, one such sweet baby is Anne of Green Gables. Anne came to us trembling and hanging dearly onto life, her survival a testament to her will to live. Now, her joyous frolicking is enough to still any beating heart.
They say money can’t buy happiness, but it can save the lives of so many vulnerable animals, as it did Anne’s. And it can go a long way to ensuring our rescue, rehabilitation and educational programs will carry on well into the coming year.
If you’re thinking of making a donation to benefit animals, please consider donating to our $100,000 Kindness Challenge. By giving us a hand, you’re ensuring we can continue to offer ours to them. No matter how little or large, every tax-deductible donation will help us fulfil our promise to all the animals who make their way to our sanctuary gates – that we will give them a life truly worth living.
All funds raised will be used to help us prepare for and overcome the trials of winter. To keep our vet supplies stocked and ready for animals needing timely care, to keep us poised for the next rescue, to keep our residents fed, warm and comfortable, and to ensure we can keep running our education programs on behalf of all our animal friends.
