Several years ago when I was in Africa hanging out with my good friend Patrick we decided to start a small business together. Patrick, a Maasai warrior, wanted to help out the women of his village who must walk 6km to get water everyday. That is just who Patrick is and it’s the way the Maasai think: to think of their community first. And I wanted to give back in some small way to thank everyone in Africa for their help and support. From that Dog Collars For Africa was born. You can read more about the story here.
But what you really need to know is…The Collars Are Here! And they are ready for you to order for that special pooch or for a friend who is crazy about dogs like we are. And by buying a beautiful beaded collar you are directly helping the women of the Ongata-Rangai village in Amboseli Kenya. 100% of the proceeds go back to the women who make these collars. The monies will be used to build a well for their village and send their children to school. Want to know more about the woman who made your collar? You can go to our web site and read their stories.
The collars are beautiful. No two are alike. Unlike other “Maasai Beaded” items you may see, our dog collars are not mass-produced. They are 100% handmade. Using cowhide and buckles acquired in Nairobi the collars are hand beaded in the village. Every collar is unique and special. Your dog will be the envy of all other dogs as they stroll the neighborhood or play in your local dog park! Make sure you send pictures of your dog wearing its collar so we can post it on our gallery!
And while we are just a few days away from Xmas your doggy will not object to a belated holiday gift. And as we approach the end of the year and think about those who have less than we do you can also contribute more to this worthwhile project. Infinite Safari Adventures has teamed up with the charitable organization A Voice Is Heard which will be providing the resources to build the well. You can make a tax-deductible contribution to this worthwhile effort. Mention Infinite Safari Adventures and we will match your contribution dollar for dollar.
Spoil your dog. Contribute to a very worthwhile project. Directly help these Maasai women. What more can you ask for?
Best wishes for a very happy holiday and a wonderful New Year.
Peace on Earth.
