Do you ever stumble upon people in your life that you realize right from the start are genuinely good people? That’s how I felt when I met my friends Rob Newton and Jessica Ernstberger (now Newton).
I met both of these wonderful humans in college. In fact, I introduced them to each other at my house. From there they dated, moved across the country, got married and then, best of all decided to help the world. Specifically, animals.
Rob and Jessica created their own animal sanctuary, which houses their twenty-three rescue goats, pigs, chickens, dogs, cats and even a parrot. They call it Diego Farms, and they graciously care for these animals on their own.
Apparently housing these animals was not enough for them, because they’ve even taken it a step farther. They have started a company called, Our Hands Change. With every purchase made, 50% of that purchase will go to a charity. My favorite part is the money will either be donated in the form of cash, or given in the equivalent monetary amount of food and/or supplies (blankets, dog beds, dog toys, etc). All of their products are made right here in the US.
Check out their awesome site, and read the stories of the people and animals involved. If we had more people like Rob and Jess, the world would certainly be a much better place.
