Some of the best gifts we can give are those that make a difference, and for many of us, we’d love to help make a difference for pets in need. Chris Wicke is a media producer in LA who believes that his videos will help spread awareness about important animal welfare issues. 

The CareFiles is a multimedia series about ordinary people becoming heroes volunteering on the frontlines of animal welfare. Each 4 to 6 minute video will feature someone who helps in ways such as:

caring for injured animals
rescuing cats and dogs
working in field clinics
reuniting lost pets with their families
helping pets in foster care

Chris is raising money for his project through a kickstarter campaign. If
you’re looking for a great gift to give your veterinarian, pet sitter,
dog groomer, or anyone who loves animals, making a donation in their
name would be a great idea. Check out their Facebook page, too!

An inspiring and
beautiful photo series by Rachel Devine of the amazing work these
volunteers are doing is being created to go along with this campaign. For a donation of $10, you can give your loved one a credit in the
video and on the Care Files website. Larger donations get your pet’s picture on the website, and more. But of course, it’s not about the rewards. It’s about helping get these videos created, so that they can spread awareness for these important issues.
