He writes: “Can you guys believe that I’m turning 35 this year?! Wow, time flies when you’re making change. Every single day so far of this my 34th year I spent tremendously grateful for the symphony of love and inspiration within the ISF family.”
He continues, “I share my personal birthday with another massive celebration: ISF’s birthday! Both ISF and I receive gifts all year round! ISF is so fortunate to have an outpouring of energy, skills and love all the way from the worldwide volunteers that team up to support and teach one another to the Board Members who provide us with an endless supply of strength.”
The heartthrob also says, “My birthday is in a time of year where funds are going to holiday gifts and when funds are tight for many people. I have a goal this year… we can get 1 million people of the 7 billion on the planet to donate $35 dollars. I know it sounds simple, but all donations big and small fuel our resources to continue expanding and making change for the voiceless of this planet: our skies, seas, energy, habitats and of course our furry friends. So if you can donate now, two months from now or at my birthday thank you. Or maybe you can donate less than six dollars a month over the next six months. If you can’t donate then you can spread the word about this year’s birthday wish.”
