A personal message from The Wild Animal I Am:
Our target: $ 35,000
So far we've raised: $ 30,537


To all who donated - your generosity & commitment to achieving #30kbymay has been overwhelming. Thank you just isn't enough... THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

Note: Donations to the Wild Animal I Am will continue to be accepted. The fundraising page will remain... open, we will always support Animals Australia.

The Wild Animal I Am ||
TWAIA was born through a series of well-timed happenings.

The foundation – That deep, innate love for animals; a knowing that we are all one + the admiration of the lifesaving work Animals Australia do to make this world a kinder place.

The conversation – My Father asked β€œWho do you want to be in this world?"

I want to be someone who stands for what they believe, with passion; someone who is not stopped by fear.
On top of the foundations I already had, this clarity of thought sparked the beginning of The Wild Animal I Am Movement.

The inaugural Wild Animal I Am Fundraiser was held on 4th July 2013, together we raised $10,000+.  Sadly, not long after the fundraiser my father passed on to better place. The Wild Animal I Am fundraiser #2 was launched on 13th November 2014, in his memory.

Today the fundraising tally sits at over $25,000... Literally a sneeze away from reaching the 30k goal (especially while donations are being doubled!)

Words cannot convey the depth of my gratitude for those who have jumped in and wholeheartedly supported the Wild Animal I Am fundraisers. Donations have come in the form of auction items, artworks, use of venues, photographers & videographers, musicians, caterers, knowledge, encouragement and love. Thank you to all who take the time to share donation page details, don’t underestimate the positive impact this has.

Think about the person you would like to be in this world, let this define where you spend your time and how you treat other beings.

If each of us support a cause we are truly passionate about we will change the world for the better, and what an incredible place it will then be.

If you believe in a world FREE OF PAIN and suffering for animals, know that your financial support is helping the truly committed animal advocates at Animals Australia to continue with their incredible work.

100% of every donation will be invested into:

- Strengthening lobbying efforts to outlaw the cruellest factory farming practices: Factory Farming, Live Export, Puppy Mills.
- Supporting ongoing public awareness initiatives to expose factory farming on TV, online, and on billboards
- Assisting with intelligence gathering and the operations of the Animals Australia investigations unit

Thank you for being part of something bigger than your every day.
For taking an active part in making the world a kinder place.
Something truly worthwhile.

Love and appreciation,
The Wild Animal I Am Team
