Chris Chipin is the 13 year old youth coordinator for EVOLVE! Campaigns. On April 25th he will be cycling 20 miles to raise money for Love The Animals Sanctuary. Please sponsor him!

Love The Animals is a Free Information Education Center and Animal Protection Sanctuary located on the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii. It is run single-handedly by Marasia who is currently caring for over 140 rescued and adopted animal-individual friends, including cows, goats, ex-battery hens, dogs, cats, rabbits, chinchillas, guinea pigs, rats and more! He relies solely on the generosity of the public to keep Love The Animals going.

Marasia has been vegan for a number of years and feels that caring for these animals is his calling in life. He has dreams to open a large animal and educational park where people can come and interact with the animals and learn to connect with them so that their perspective is altered and they realise that animals should not be harmed, exploited, eaten etc.

EVOLVE! Campaigns have been working with him since his first rescue over three years ago – Rolanda fundraises and also runs his Myspace and Facebook pages. Chris wanted to help by doing this sponsored bike ride because he has seen Love The Animals grow, and often struggle financially, as more and more needy animals join the family.
