This is the second last full day to buy your raffle ticket - 13 absolutely great animal prizes to win!
Araballa wants to know .... do you have yours? ......
The draw will take place on the 16th at lunch time, so you will have all over-night the 15th to buy and into the morning of the 16th. Open worldwide ofcourse.
It will be drawn by Ross Minett from OneKind. Thank you Ross and OneKind!
Ross is the Science and Research Manager, Animal Sentience and Behaviour, and OneKind are an Edinburgh based
charity that are changing the way people perceive animals. 'Our intention is to create a movement of people who live an animal-friendly lifestyle as the mainstream; in the same way that green living and recycling or Fairtrade are now mainstream lifestyle choices for millions of people.
For this reason, traditional campaigning is no longer enough. If we really want to reconnect human kind and animal kind we need people to recognise that animals think and feel just like we do and this means the same love, joy, pain and fear. Only when each of us recognises this will the maltreatment of animals come to an end; creating a more compassionate world for our children and ourselves.'
I couldn't agree more!
Ross has a rescued dog called Paddy. I wonder if I shall be meeting Paddy?
Ofcourse no-one has to convince me that animals are sentient, fully feeling beings because I have read Amelia Kinkade's 2 books and attended one of her Animal Communication workshops - I know first hand that all living beings have feelings!
Here is Amelia in Thailand amongst the water buffalo.
and amongst the elephants! very touching, very special! can you feel the energy and love that this picture holds?
Here are some questions and answers from Amelia about animal sentience. I hope you find them interesting and encourage you to read her books, or better still, attend one of her courses.
and take heart - everyone can communicate, all it takes is practise and patience. Her books have all the instructions you will need to do so. (I am still learning!) She truly is an earth angel.
and just one more of Amelia and a furry friend! Thank you Amelia for teaching me so much!
OneKind have Christmas cards for sale featuring their own little tiger in the trees! Perhaps he has his eye on a robin further up?
I'm really looking forward to meeting Ross again and to post about the winners on the 16th as soon as I get home!
... but I see he has, er, dozed off ....
