Some of the students from Askham Bryan College are visiting the Donkey sanctuary in Aruba this summer to help out for two weeks so they wanted to raise some funds for the Sanctuary to take with them when they go.
Founded in 1997 as a non profit and completely volunteer run organization, their mission is simple, save donkeys. Upon arrival to this safe haven the donkeys are all given names, food, water, shelter, quality health care and lots of love.
There is no admission fee to the sanctuary though generous donations are greatly appreciated and are what keeps the sanctuary running
The sanctuary currently has over 140 donkeys.
