The Slate Foundation is a wonderful organization. They Care, they're kind and they are trying to make a difference in Africa. They don't talk the talk they walk the walk, and it's nothing i wouldn't do to help they in their endeavors.

The Slate Foundation is an effective model because they target the source of the problem, and they understand that you can't separate out the human issues from the natural and animal. Their programs effectively empower and feed disadvantaged African women and children, while simultaneously saving nearby populations of wildlife. Brilliant. If I were to choose one non-profit to donate my time, passion and efforts to, it would be The Slate Foundation.

I have had the pleasure of knowing the Slates and their foundation for several years. Their passion for saving endangered animals through education is so strong that I volunteer my time to them whenever is necessary. I feel that by working with The Slate Foundation I've been able to help towards their goals that have now become my goals.

I have been fortunate enough to have known Madison and Bill for years. I can honestly say that I am in awe of their passion and conviction to make a positive impact on the future of women and children in Africa. Both of them work tirelessly and ask for nothing in return for themselves.

I've known Madison and Bill (founders of the Slate Foundation) for a while now, and they're both such caring and giving people! Madison volunteers with my professional women's group, and I'm always amazed by how much energy she has for everything. Not only does she help and support animals and children through her own foundation, she also finds the time to contribute to her community. They both really give it their all to the Slate Foundation, working tirelessly to make the world a better place for animals, children, and the environment. Unlike other organizations, they really realize how inter-connected all of these aspects are, and that you have to get to the core of a problem before you can make a long-lasting impact.

Bill and Madison Slate have a great passion for not only animals, but communities who must co-exist with them. The Slates understand that to save animals we must have compassion and understanding of the human communities amongst them. The Living School is a wonderful vision and with your help can become a reality.

I have known Bill and Madison Slate for many years and have watched their interest in education, preservation, and animals grow into a passion. This passion has led them to dedicate their lives to the foundation they started, not simply be satisfied with doing something on the side. Their passion has been contagious, and it has been a pleasure to watch their grass roots beginnings develop into a respected organization. To see them line up sponsors based upon their passion and drive should be motivation to anyone who strives to make a difference. This is truly a great organization because of the people behind it, it really is an extension of them and it can be seen in every endeavor they take on.

The leaders of the slate foundation have realized that to end poaching means educating people about how to raise chickens and rabbits while gardening to feed their families. Their initiatives in Africa are inspiring.

The Slate Foundation is a truly inspiring organization run by incredibly dedicated individuals. Time and time again I've seen them make the most of their resources and really walk the walk -- getting out into the field to spread education on conservation. The video I've seen of their field work in Africa gave me goosebumps. Seeing the connection with the children and adults (and animals of course) reminds you that it is possible to make a difference even if it has to happen one person at a time.
