Hello, my name is Ashley Lacroix. For my whole life I've always been fascinated and intrigued by animals. I'm not talking about your generic house pets or farm animals, but wild animals, especially big cats. I've volunteered at some facilities, but none have offered the hands-on experience that Volunteer.sa is. As a career i want to become a zoologist or even just get a job at a zoo, just to simply be around what i love. This volunteer organization offers to fly a select number of people to South Africa to a community where they foster and teach groups on how to care, understand and learn what these beautiful creatures have to offer us. They provide room and board, food, education and vast amount of memories that will stay with them forever. For those who know me know that this trip would be an experience of a lifetime, to have the chance to be up close and personal with these animals, to touch and feel their power would be absolutely magical. This experience would mean i'd have a footprint on the path to my dream. The problem is, I can't afford all the funds it requires to get there. That's where I'm hoping friends, family and even kind hearted strangers will come in to play. I'm not asking for much really, just hoping a few will be generous enough to help a young womens dream become a reality. Thank you.
