So you're here because I'm another year older, and you're very kindly donating to help me celebrate!
I send my thanks in advance... I don't need more things but I do want to support this incredible charity to do what we do.
For those who aren't aware, I'm the CEO of Vets for Climate Action (VfCA).
VfCA works to create a world where animals and people thrive in a healthy climate. Climate change is an animal health and welfare issue: animals hold no responsibility for the cause but are feeling the effects every day through floods, bushfires, extreme heat etc. I won't upset you with the details - you can poke through the website to learn more - but vets and vet nurses are on the frontline, dealing with these impacts on the animals we love every day.
And these amazingly generous and empathetic humans then give up their time to also volunteer with us. So much of the work we do is supported by their actions: letters to politicians, government submissions, staffing events, hosting webinars, delivering presentations and producing educational materials. This includes the groundbreaking Climate Care Program, an online training program that provides tangible steps for veterinary surgeries to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions to meet state and federal targets.
Your donation will help us to continue all this work.
Good news too - all donations over $2 are tax deductible.
Thank you again. Your generosity means the world to me.
On the behalf of the animals,
