Weʼre raising £1,075 to help build a sanctuary for working donkeys to retire to in South Eastern Bulgaria.
- Elhovo, Bulgaria
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Donkeys in Bulgaria are treated very badly, (akin to Victorian times In the UK but worse).They carry heavy loads in searing hot summer weather and are still grafting away in sub zero winter conditions. It is common in towns & villages in Bulgaria to see donkeys pulling carts with the whole family on plus a load.
The living conditions are harsh and there is no pleasure in being a Bulgarian donkey. They often have no shelter and are chained and weighted by a shackle to the ankle.
My vision is to see these donkeys are treated with love and respect and those that are too old to work can retire at our sanctuary in peace and comfort.
Please help us help them have a lovely retirement!

About the fundraiser
I love Donkeys and have always felt an affinity to them especially ones that have hard lives. This is my dream come true to help as many of these beautiful animals as possible live out their old age in peace and comfort.
