Welcome to the official online launch of the Edgar’s Mission Kindness Challenge 2013!
Over the past few weeks, you’ll have heard us discuss the growing demands on Edgar’s Mission, with nearly 2,500 animals given a second chance at life in 2012. You may also be aware that our current farm is fast running out of space and will not be able to meet our future rescue, educational and awareness-raising needs.
So in 2013 we’re planning to secure a larger property, with facilities that better cater for the care we provide our animal residents and to allow us to offer even more animals not simply with a life, but with a life worth living. And we are inviting our Edgar’s friends – old and new – to be a part of this journey with us.
We know that you want to make a real difference to the lives of animals, so we’re inviting you to take up the Kindness Challenge.
The Kindness Challenge was launched by our celebrity ambassadors Marieke Hardy, Megan Kennedy and Peter Siddle at our 10th Anniversary celebration on Saturday the 13th of April. Please join them and the dozens of people who signed up on the day in taking up the challenge.
How do I get involved?
Make a pledge to raise $1,000, $500 or $5,000 for Edgar’s Mission to help us reach our target of $500,000 by 30th September 2013. In doing so, you will help create a new future for Edgar’s Mission and make a difference to the lives of many animals in need.
Each $1,000 raised will secure a safe and happy home for an Edgar’s Mission cow, 3 pigs, 4 goats, 6 sheep or 50 chickens.
$1000 might seem like a lot, but that’s why we’ve called it a Challenge! Here are some ways that break it down into more achievable steps:
Do lots of little things that add up: for example, sign up as a monthly donor, ask people to sponsor a Best Buddy (one of our lovely animals) in your name for your birthday, keep a collection tin at work or host a dinner. There are loads more ideas on our website
In recognition of your amazing contribution, a Kindness Mural will be created at the new farm – and your name will be on it for the thousands of visitors to Edgar’s Mission each year to see.
You can get started right now by signing up today!
Thank you for being a part of the Edgar’s Mission journey.
Make Edgar’s your Mission in 2013.
