About my cause

My cause is Animals Australia. Animals Australia is internationally respected for its commitment to investigating and exposing animal abuse. As Australia's foremost animal protection organisation, Animals Australia works to protect the most vulnerable and abused animals in our society, focusing on the areas of greatest need such as factory farming and live animal export. Your support will underpin critical public awareness initiatives and help to send experienced investigators to where animals need them most. Learn more. Watch a video

A personal message from Ricardo:
My target: $ 2,000
So far I've raised: $ 1,916

Please sponsor me to complete a Half Iron Man Triathlon Hey friends I hope you can dig in and sponsor me with whatever contribution that you can to help donate $2,000 to Animals Australia. As a deal if you do, I'll promise to finish a Half Iron Man triathlon that will see me complete a 2km swim, a 90km bike ride and finish with a 21km run. Not bad for me as you know! ;-)... This will happen on December 13th 2015.

Help me fight the good fight and help reduce animal suffering by helping Animals Australia to raise greater public awareness about Factory Farming and Australia's Live Export Trade and to lobby governments to introduce or lift existing laws to protect the welfare of animals.

I'll be grateful for any contributions that you can make. But most grateful will be the voiceless and helpless animals that are suffering right now. Help give them a voice.
