  20. 20. A last word? “Dear Michele and Ian, Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to say that I admire what you do to improve the life of children and animals. When I came across your project with Shiloweni for the first time while surfing the Global Giving website, I couldn't NOT help the beautiful cat that you saved. I've always loved cats, you know, no matter how big and wild they are. Later I came to know and respect your other projects in DAKTARI school and orphanage. You teach the kids, open their eyes to their beautiful homeland and give them a chance for a better life. Knowing that somebody cares for you is important, so you are very important for these boys and girls and of course for your animals :) Thank you very-very much and all my best wishes!
