Hello Lion Hearts!
First, I would like to thank everyone that has participated on our GlobalGiving platform. Our current stats are 152 donations totalling $7,108.54 USD. Which has exceded my expectations. Yes, we have more road to go but it definitely shows we have the heart to get there for the Taiz animals. So a huge thank you again to everyone. We may be a small nonprofit but we are mighty.
Currently, all donaions to date have gone to critical needs. This includes food, water, medications, vitamins, and veterinary care for the almost 300 animals in our care. Everyday remains critical for every animal in Taiz zoo and we are the zoo's only support.
We continue to strive for something better for these embattled animals. We feel blessed to have obtained the critical supplies but there is a differnce in being alive and truly living. The archaic features and conditions at the zoo could bring even the hardest of hearts to their knees. I know it haunts everyone, which is why our ultimate goal for this project is to build one state of the art enclosure for one pride of lions. We belive this will show what can be done and show our future for the Taiz animals. Many of the Taiz lions have never had any grass touch their feet or the sun kiss their backs. It is time to fight to make this happen.
However, we are still struggling with stability and as long as this is an issue, we cannot focus on anything but critical needs, which is why we will be working on outreach over the next two weeks. We need for more people to be aware of the zoo and our plight to save it. So, we need everyone on board with this project with lots of shares! We also have an infograph located on our website that breaks our project down on what we do in a simple, easy to share form. https://www.alionsheart.org/what-we-do
I now ask you to continue to know that all things are posible. We conquer all obstacles together. We have already defeated the odds with these animals and will continue to do so. We will reach all of our goals and change the lives of these animals forever. Brick by brick and step by step, we will win and win togeher for the Taiz animals.
