These sweet 12″ x 12″ canvas prints and companion pieces, “Cow & Sunfowers” and “Bulls & Sunflowers” by Peggy Harris are now available at The Phoenix Collection 50% of the proceeds of sales are being donated to Wishing Well Sanctuary in Bradford, Ontario. We have supported Farm Sanctuary.org for years as well as other farm animal sanctuaries in Canada and the U.S. and plan to visit Wishing Well in a couple of weeks. These organization’s common mission is to protect farm animals from cruelty, inspire change in the way society views and treats farm animals, and to promote compassionate vegan living.
In addition, at Wishing Well, humane education is a key component of the Sanctuary’s mission to promote a kinder, gentler world. They provide age tailored programs that explore empathy, compassion and respect for all. Lessons learned in the classroom are underscored during quality time spent interacting with the furry sages of the Wishing Well family after each class. Classes are open to groups of all ages and are tailored to suit different age groups/grades. Wishing Well’s humane education syllabus is compatible with the Ontario school curriculum. They aim not only to promote compassion, but to provide a healing environment which enhances resiliency and self-esteem. We like this a lot — many people need to learn this stuff — thank goodness, for many of us, it comes naturally.
Just take a look at their animal profile page to see how respectful and devoted Wishing Well is to the Sanctuary residents. I can’t wait to visit!
