After a visit to South Africa, Candace learned about the significant effect wildlife conservation had on community
development there. She was inspired by the sense of community and genuine concern for protecting the surrounding area’s wildlife and land. After her visit, she decided to become involved and make a difference. She set out to leave a “legacy gift” for an organization called African Wildlife Foundation, an organization that focuses on wildlife conservation, land and habitat protection, community empowerment, and economic development. As her gift to the foundation, Candace has made AWF a beneficiary in her Will.
Not only does she actively help with AWF, Candace also volunteers for animal rescues around the world. To help raise money for various animal sanctuaries and wildlife areas, she has also begun a new venture selling greeting cards as a fun way to fundraise online.

While many people are perfectly content with staying busy at one job, Candace has tackled multiple jobs, volunteering programs, and other opportunities to help the world’s wildlife. If you were inspired by Candace’s story, check out AWF’s website to see how you can help!
