Cheetah Fundraiser


So it’s been coming for a while now, and it’s finally LIVE! My Born To Run Cheetah Fundraiser, that is!


If any of you have been reading my blog, or know me in the slightest way, you know that I am a huge cat lover! I have volunteered a few times with big cats, and I have found one of my homes away from home in South Africa with cheetahs!


This remarkable place called Ashia is a forever home for some of their resident cheetahs, and some are set so be released into the protected wild in South Africa to then be a part of the meta population of cheetahs to diversify their gene pool and enable the future survival of their species! So far, they’ve had a great success rate in the releases that have happened in the last year or so! If you want to know more, you can visit their website and see what they’re all about!




I visited them last September, and you can see my original post about my experience here.  This place is, without a doubt, heaven on earth! This is the exact reason why I will be returning to volunteer with them again this coming September… and here lies the reason for this post!


These magnificent species of Africa – elephants, rhino, lions, leopards, cheetah, the great apes (Africa has four of the world’s five great apes) – this is a treasure for all humanity, and they are not for sale. They are not for trade. They need to be valued and preserved by humanity. We all need a global commitment to that.

I have been organizing my own personal cheetah fundraiser event – Born To Run – to raise funds for these amazing animals! I mean… look at them!

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for any support you are able to provide! Wildlife is so important to me, and this is a mission that I hold so close!





No matter how few possessions you own or how little money you have, loving wildlife and nature will make you rich beyond measure.
