Fiona and Hari’s wedding
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.
Fiona and I are getting married on the 8 September 2017. We have been planning the wedding festivities for over a year and are very excited for the upcoming events
We have been thinking about doing something special to celebrate our union and the union of our families.
We decided instead of having favours at our wedding for our guests we would do something they would remember and something that would make a difference to others, we would donate money on our guests behalf to Palmera.
I’ve always been a big fan of Palmera and the cause since 2009, when I did the Human Race. It was heaps of fun and such a clever idea to raise money! So whenever charities come to mind, the first I think of is Palmera. I am also a big advocate for humanitarian issues, and knowing how it has affected families around us, I want to make a change.
We chose the Milking It to Change Lives project because we believe in animal welfare, and agriculture is a very sensitive issue to deal with in regards to animals. The animals deserve to be treated with respect – something that isn’t done very well at all, especially in first-world countries. The fresh start the farmers of the North have is a great opportunity to educate the farmers to ensure that the animals and humans can work together and provide for each other, rather than one hurting the other to get what they want.
We hope our drop in the ocean inspires others to donate further. Together we can all make a more significant change.
