Posted on May 31, 2016We were able to send $530 to help Everest and $100 to Jarjeer Mules to help the working animals of Marakech in their care. We hope that we can continue to help Louise as well as Sue from Jarjeer Mules and all the kind and compassionate work they do for the forgotten animals they dedicate their time, energy and finances to. Thank you to both of them and all of you who supported us in our fundraiser. This is from Louise:
Thank you dearest Kimberly. I can't express my gratitude enough that you and others far away have shown such compassion and generosity for Everest. This money cover his bill and free up financial space for us to help other dogs ??

Posted on May 21, 2016FINAL FUNDRAISER UPDATE AND LAST CHANCE TO DONATE AND SHARE!
Hi everyone! Everest is doing well and we are so happy and grateful to Louise Kradi and all of the caring people she works with in Marrakech who help the many animals suffering there. We raised $200 for Everest's medical bills from popcorm sales, $70.00 on you caring, $130.00 from our spring Humane Education and Companion Animal Adoption Event, and generous donors and friends of YAP matched the kid's fundraising efforts with another $130.00 (Thank you Ivy and Lu!). We didn't meet our $750 goal, but we got to $530.00 for Everest - not bad!
We will be sending the money to Jarjeer Mules (http://www.jarjeer.org/?page_id=40) who will distribute the money to Louise Kradi for Everest's expenses. As a thank you to Jarjeer Mules and to acknowledge their wonderful work, we will be making an additional donation to them for $100.00, raised by our YAP kid's popcorn sales. If you would like to help us meet our $750 goal to contribute to Everest's funds, or help the animals at Jarjeer Mules, please consider donating now here or to Jarjeer Mules directly. More information about them is below. Thank you so much to everyone who donated, shared and supported our fundraiser and helped our students learn the importance of empathy and compassion for all creatures.
Jarjeer is a community set in 6 hectares of land in the foothills of the High Atlas. The Jarjeer project was developed by Charles Hantom and Susan Machin who have developed close links with the village of Oumnas and are committed to preserving the local landscape and the way of life embedded in the strongest Berber traditions.
We care for abused, old and disabled equines, that is what we do! Our team works with local people by offering support not only to equines but also to children and adults who want to learn more of equine care.
Our commitment to our project includes providing services to visitors and holiday makers who want to experience the best of the local culture. You can enjoy the company of our donkeys and mules whilst enjoying drinks and snacks before your journey back to Marrakech. All proceeds from the sale of refreshments goes to the welfare and upkeep of the animals.
