I don't post much in the way of hardships/charities/giving back but this broke my heart when it popped up on my FB feed. He's a friend of a friend who was fired from his job in the state of KY simply for being gay. This is one of 38 states in this country where it is legal to be fired for sexual preference. As if that weren't bad enough, this kind man runs an animal sanctuary and has more than 300 animals in his care. He is now struggling to pay his bills and care for these sweet animals. The court costs for unsuccessfully fighting this case have drained him financially. I find it deplorable that this is even a struggle he is facing and neither he, nor his animals deserve to suffer because of a sexual preference. Donate if you can and spread the word about this injustice.
