All profits from the sale of this pendant will be donated to Windchimes organization to create a place for children and animals with special needs on the basis of mutual rehabilitation.
Ever since I was a child I was fascinated by the animal kingdom and nature. It's beauty, magnitude and endless variety of life forms was and still is a powerful source of inspiration and wisdom for me. As a child it gave me confidence and courage and my current understanding as an adult is that it gave me both balance and perception and the understanding of the importance of compassion; though I still remember the worried expression on my parents face when, as a five-year-old child I gave a hug to my neighbor's huge Rottweiler….
Over the years I've saved and took care of many animals and our current members of our family Kesem and Banga are already taking care and playing with my third son. They were rescued by us 13 years ago. Banga who was thrown to the street when she was pregnant was found starved and exhausted after she gave just gave birth. We kept one of the puppies with us and they are part of our family ever since. It is quite moving to watch Banga who we fondly call Grandma playing with my young son, and though her senses are not as sharp as they used to be and you can see the signs of old age she is still making an effort each time to play with him and patiently allows him to pet her not so “gently”.
A few weeks ago I’ve heard about a new crowdfunding campaign for a nonprofit organization that is called Windchimes. The idea behind this organization is to create a place for children and animals with special needs on the basis of mutual rehabilitation. After a meeting with Dr. Noam Rudich - the initiator of this project I volunteered to create a special pendant with their symbol. We will donate the profits from this pendant sales so that this dream will become a reality. This is also an opportunity to thank all of you for helping us promote the “Trees for the Future Foundation” - our Ecology Jewelry pieces helped them plant more than 100000 trees over the past decade!
So without further ado, I’d like to share with you the vision of Dr. Noam Rudich:
"Dear friends. My dream, the thing I have been working so hard to fulfill is on the brink of realization: Windchimes, a center for mutual rehabilitation of children and animals with special needs. I believe that a collaborative relationship between children and animals, built on the foundation of a non-abusive, warm and respectful approach, can be achieved.
I founded a non-profit organization, I have the land, professional staff, legal aid and about 14 tons worth of motivation. All I need to build my dream are the funds to renovate the clinics and animals’ habitats. To this end, I started a crowdfunding campaign.
Dr. Noam Rudich"
