How cute are donkeys!
Ever since I was a little girl, I've loved these creatures with the fluffy ears
A look behind the scenes of the donkey industry on Santorini showed me some very sad pictures. The donkeys are being badly mistreated here – but I don't want to go into more detail now, it's too sad.
I want to do something to help the donkeys.
I found the SAWA institution – Santorini Animal Welfare Association, that gives a home to the retired donkeys, picks up any donkey that needs help, gives them medical treatment and gives them a happy life before passing the rainbow bridge. I was there myself and the owener Christina does a great job there! She is the founder and good soul of SAWA. She takes care of everything that comes from A-Z.
Here the solution was found quickly!
I donate for the Santorini donkeys at SAWA 10% of the salary of each of my bookings. That way I can directly support the animals on my adopted home island. By booking one of my service, you help me to give the donkeys here on Santorini something back. Love, peace and tranquility.
Thank you very much for that!
The slightly different Wedding gift!
How about giving a donation to the donkeys as your wedding gift?
Your loved ones will transfer any amount directly in your name, or you can transfer the collected amount to SAWA's bank account, thus helping the poor donkeys in the shelter to have a happy retirement.
I would be very happy to help you with this so that all the important information reaches you and your guests.
Important: these photos were taken especially to show how the donkeys are doing, and that you can donate as a bridal couple or help me to support the donkeys. I don't want to encourage anyone to have donkeys at the wedding - I don't support this at all.
