Most of my waking hours I spend carving stylized stone animals and running my sculpture business. I do not have hours to volunteer with organizations that help protect our planet.
I am a member of several environmental organizations and receive their publications. The information they provide is inspiring and uplifting. I feel empowered and better prepared to deal with attacks on our environment by our governments and corporations.
What I Do
I carve many stone sculptures depicting endangered species and with environmental themes. When one of these sculptures sells, I donate money from my portion of the proceeds of the sale to a non-profit organization that helps the endangered animal and fights for the health of our world.
Below are the organizations to which I have donated money and the titles of the sculptures sold that allowed me to do that:
Amphibian Arc—“One Handsome Frog”
Desert Tortoise Preserve Committee—“Desert Queen”
Fauna and Flora International—“The Last Dinosaur” (leatherback sea turtle)
Natural Resources Defense Council—“Monarchs Matter”, “See Through Other Eyes: Spotted Owl”, “Run!” (Alaskan wolves), “Force of Nature” (wolf)
African Wild Dog Conservancy—“One For All” (African wild dog)
Forever Free Horse Rescue—“Sassy”, “Pretty-Girl”, “Moon Horse”
Why I Do It
I feel like am taking a positive step in helping our world and all beings who live here when I donate money from my creations.
It makes me happy.
