Best Birthday Present Ever!

2 Comments

I turned 40 at the end of June, and in the weeks leading up to my birthday many people asked me what I wanted for my birthday. “It is a milestone birthday,” they said, “you need to celebrate in style.”

What I want more than anything is for us humans to stop hurting and exploiting other species. This is why I was absolutely thrilled to received a very special gift from two very special people–a fundraising campaign in honour of my birthday. All funds raised will go directly to Cedar Row Farm Sanctuary. I believe in the important work that Sanctuaries such as Cedar Row do. The rescue, advocacy, and education work that these organizations do is crucial. Places like Cedar Row are also peaceful, wonderful places where you can rub a pig’s belly, cuddle a chicken, and come face to face with a cow. I volunteered at Cedar Row’s open house in June, and over and over again I saw people making thoughtful, compassionate connections between their interactions with these ambassador animals and other aspects of their lives.

A huge thanks to all the wonderful people who donated to this fundraiser! Thank you for helping me celebrate my birthday by helping a cause that is so near and dear to my heart.

  1. A belated happy birthday, Keri! :) I hope you and yours are doing well. You’ve been on my mind lately since I’ve been rereading Nancy Drew books. :)
