Laurie donates 5% of her income in addition to her time and energy for conservation and animal rescue efforts.
Laurie is passionate about helping those that need it, especially animals. Most of her life, she worked hard to contribute, beginning in grade school with challenged children, then arts programming for girls at risk, land conservation, and rescue efforts for animals and honey bees. Laurie lives in a close relationship with the natural world by growing organic food, raising honeybees and other creatures, eating local and vegetarian, recycling everything possible, using alternative energy, and in general reducing the carbon footprint left behind. Laurie is a member of conservation and animal rescue organizations including GO GREEN and encourages others to help conserve the natural world.
