Early in March, I made this
post revealing the grand total of the money raised for the Animal Defenders International fundraiser, and also posted a short note from Toni Scalera, the Development Director for ADI, thanking everyone for their participation. I've recently received another email from Toni, who was gracious enough to type up a formal thank you letter for everyone!
I've converted the original PDF file to an image that everyone can read. I won't spoil it here so you can read it for yourself. Click the cut to read it!( Collapse )
Toni also brings me to my next point: animal adoption, or specifically, lion adoption! How can one adopt a lion, you ask? It's a lot easier than you might think, and don't worry, there aren't any air-lifts involved ;) All you have to do is fill out the adoption form you'll find below that Toni kindly sent me. Just include your name, phone number, address, desired donation amount, and a few other details, and your money will go straight to ADI and will directly benefit the newly-rescued lions. As Toni states above in the thank you letter, your donation will also come with an adoption pack consisting of an adoption certificate, a DVD, and also their adoption newsletter "Toto News" which is only sent 3 times a year.
I think everyone can agree that this is a truly fantastic way to honor not only Jorja's continued support of ADI and animal activism, but also, the lions that ADI so courageously rescued as well as ADI itself! Please consider donating what you can. There's no minimum donation, and every little bit counts.

If anyone is interested in adopting a lion, please visit ADI's website HERE
