World Rabies - A West African Campaign

Rabies - or as it's known in French, la rage - is a dangerous disease of warm-bloodied animals, it kills and destroys lives worldwide - especially in Africa and Asia.

A generous donation of 10,000 doses of rabies vaccine and syringes from VIP PetCare (@VIP_PetCare) and Zoetis (@Zoetis) has been made to meet the Togolese government's request for this year's World Rabies Day Campaign on September 28th.

S'il vous plaît!

We need your support to ship, record/document, and provide insurance airfare/housing/transportation/food for the American staff that will be traveling to the West African country for the two week campaign.

Your donation will allow us to travel to six locations in Togo, film our campaign and raise awareness in the U.S. about how rabies is affecting lives not only here but in West Africa as well.

A simple Google search of this disease is a frightening reminder that anyone can be an unfortunate victim of rabies - be it while jogging, cutting the grass or even sleeping in our beds.

Ah bon?

How would you like a personalized YouTube message from a Togolese family member, a Rage T-Shirt or an executive producer credit on a project that will save lives and educate people on how to protect them against a deadly disease?

Please join me, a seasoned philanthropist in West Africa and Baltimore, in this important fight. I've spear-headed Rabies campaigns for years, as I expand my reach and focus to the continent of Africa.

Bonne Chance!

We've already done the heavy lifting. We secured the vaccines and syringes. And we've marshaled the support of the Togolese government, Togolese veterinarians and numerous volunteers who are ready to vaccinate 10,000 animals - dogs, cats and a few monkeys during the World Rabies Day campaign, starting September 28, 2013.

Help me develop a documentary of this project so we can increase awareness, raise money to duplicate these efforts in Niger and Ghana. In many countries, rabies destroys families in communities with no access to vaccines or treatment. It results in untimely and painful deaths for fathers, mothers, children and their pets.

Blessed Qi to you and yours!

Merci beaucoup!
