    Jo is a magnificent person, and We Animals reflects this. It provides for free an impacting means for any activist trying to convey what is very difficult to communicate: that animals need us to see their reality and change our behavior.

    Beyond important, and courageous, work. In memorializing cruelty and death to save future lives. We should never forget the pain, suffering, and ability as individuals and together, to change for now and forever.

About Jo's 46th birthday fundraiser for We Animals Media

Hello friends, colleagues, and family!

My 46th birthday is approaching. December 23rd. I'm so happy to have had another year on this improbable, perfect planet.

Last year I launched my first We Animals birthday fundraiser, and you all knocked my socks off with your support. Because you were so happy and generous about it, I'm doing it again.

This year I aim to raise $4,600 for my 46th. I'd love your help in keeping our tireless team in the field, doing this pioneering animal photojournalism.

We now have 90+ contributors to our stock site, nearing 20,000 photos and videos from over 70 countries, which are free for anyone helping animals. What we're building is unparalleled, and I am so proud of what this small but mighty team has achieved.

In 2022 we gave assignments in Indonedia, Thailand, Turkey, Greece, and on the continents of Africa and North America. We covered the war in Ukraine. We covered bird flu. We covered fishing practices, dairy farming, and broiler chickens. We formed partnerships with NGOs and the media. And we really are just getting started.

To those of you giving big, I'll be giving back! If you donate $100 or more, I'd love to send you a signed 8x10 print as thanks.

To those of you giving $460 or more for my 46th, I'm also offering a 46 minute zoom call ;) You can use it as a portfolio review, a discussion about all things photography or animal rights, whatever you like!

And if you want to donate $4,600 - cheeky of me, I know - I'll thank you with a signed copy of each of my books, six signed 8x10 prints, and a 46 minute zoom hang (doesn't hurt to try!).

If you love that we make thousands of photos and videos available for free to anyone helping animals...

If you love that we build community in the animal advocacy and photography worlds...

If you love that we mentor people globally and offer an animal photojournalism fellowship...

If you'd love to continue seeing our work on the global stage...

then please help me celebrate my birthday - and these two decades of effort as I built We Animals - by contributing to my birthday fundraiser for WAM.

With happiness, determination, and a few more grey hairs,
