I work as an online English teacher and that means I am daily exposed to the latest news taking place around our globe. This morning I taught an article about the many Australian Koalas who have lost their homes due to a destructive bush fires. “Over 1,000 koalas may have been killed as the fires spread and 80% of the koalas’ habitat has now been destroyed. Many of the trees that have been burned were eucalyptus trees, which are the main food source for koalas.”
I am a huge animal lover and of course my heart drowned when learning this news. It made me think of the fact that there are so many animals out there that are dying out, or living in hell because of direct human influence.
As humans we have so much power and influence over the animal kingdom and I am so grateful that there does exist a huge group of caring individuals who spend of their time and energy in doing their best to rectify and, or, reverse the effects that us humans have had on our animal friends.
“The Port Macquarie Koala Hospital has raised over AUS$1 million for koalas affected by the fires, after asking people to help them raise just AUS$25,000. The money will be used to help koalas that have been hurt and also build a safe habitat for them.
So I took a vow and I will share it with you below:
There are SO many organizations and charities that could do with our help. You can send through whatever amount you are able to contribute, your contribution goes a long way and helps in more ways than you could ever imagine. Today, I donated money to The Port Macquarie Hospital, it was my first ever experience of donating towards an animal charity, it felt great!
There are many instances in a month where I spend my money on unnecessary items. I have vowed to spend my money towards what really matters to me, and that is our home, our planet and everything housed by it.
If you care about the planet, but like me, don’t know much about the different charities that exist to help sentient beings and the environment, then Google is your friend! 🙂 I found a few charities that feel close to my heart and I have decided on donating towards different ones each month.
I don’t earn a lot of money, but the environment means so much to me, it is all I know and I can’t imagine a society, or a world, where nature no longer exists, money is nothing in comparison to life.
Let’s all help where we can in the many different ways we are able to.
