We’ve donated $74,820 to
farm sanctuaries and farmed animal advocacy organizations
on $5 Fridays.
That’s sensational news!
Special thanks to YOU for joining this movement!
This week’s $5 Friday pick is
Farm Animal Sanctuary.
Earlier this week, we held a contest on Kirschner’s Korner on Facebook asking people to vote for their favorite farm sanctuary. More than 1,000 people voted, reminding us sanctuaries play a pivotal role in the animal advocacy movement. Blackberry Creek Farm Animal Sanctuary received the most votes! As a result, we are teaming up to support them as this week’s $5 Friday pick.
Here are a few reasons why Blackberry Creek is poised to be one of the most effective farm sanctuaries in the United States and why you should donate $5:
1) The sanctuary is founded and operated by volunteer K-12 educators. They place a heavy emphasis on humane education, using their rescued animals as ambassadors for compassionate eating by hosting guided tours and special events, and delivering presentations in the community.
2) It’s an all-volunteer organization with significant enthusiasm from everyone who visits and sees how effectively and kindly it’s run.
3) The sanctuary leadership team is creative and understands how to use social media to draw attention to ethical veganism and respect for farmed animals.
4) When farmed animals fall off a transport truck, escape, or get rescued, they need a place to live out their natural lives. There is no home they can go where they will be better cared for and more loved than Blackberry Creek. These animals need our financial support to cover the cost of their food and medical care in addition to the equipment needed to operate a sanctuary.
5) They want to build a book barn where children can read to their rescued animals. This experience will likely remain with the children for a lifetime and inspire them to leave animals off their plates and teach countless others to do the same. The first $1,000 donated today will be matched! Check out this adorable video!

Thank you so much, Jack! Can’t wait to see you at the painting party and take a photo of you and Po!
I attempted to donate $5 and the transaction wouldn’t go through. I tried again and got the same notification. I figured I try later. Now I see I received two emails thanking me for my donations. So I guess I donated $10.
We’d be happy to refund one of those if you’d like! I can do that ASAP! Sorry for the trouble and thank you so much for your donation!
Absolutely not. Initially, I was going to donate $10. So it was meant be. I know it’s going a worthy cause!
Okay, thank you so very much!!! We will put it to excellent use for the animals! ❤
