Now We’ve Seen It All … A Donkey That Paints For Charity

Animals have many special talents. Patty, however, might have one of the most creative sides we've seen in a furry friend. Patty, a donkey from Romania, was found very malnourished and wandering the streets. Horse World, the leading UK charity caring primarily for horses, ponies and donkeys, took this special animal under their care. Vicky, a trainer, has been working with Patty for over four years. Through a method called 'Clicker Training' Patty was brought back to good health and high spirits. She learned various tricks like kicking a football and removing Vicki's coat, but her most famous is painting.

Patty has been painting for about 4 years now. She started painting as part of a show at the Visitor Centre, which has since closed to the public. Vicky developed the show to demonstrate clicker training and how it is particularly useful for animals who have previously suffered abuse or are nervous, as the training technique involves only positive reinforcement, there is never any punishment involved. Patty has since come out of her shell, becoming very friendly, charismatic and a talented painter. Her work is not only beautiful but also charitable!

Patty sells her paintings through the charity. All the money raised by her amazing artwork is used to support the rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming of other animals in need.

Learn more about Patty and see her awesome paintings by visiting their website!

Rescue, Transform, Share: How an Ohio Soup Shack Is Saving Lives

"It really does take a village to help people," says Sandra Lettie, a volunteer with La Soupe in Cincinnati, Ohio. La Soupe is helping to build and activate just such a "village" of compassionate people from the local area around the goal of producing food from discarded produce and providing it to families in need.

According to La Soupe's CEO, Suzy DeYoung, the organization's central mission is to "rescue, transform, and share." First, volunteers with La Soupe visit grocery stores and farms to pick up produce that was going to be discarded and "rescue" it for use in the soups that the team creates. That produce is then "transformed" into healthy, delicious food by the chefs at La Soupe. Finally, the food is "shared" with those in the local community who need it.
