Saving A Life – The Best Thing From Isolation

Saving A Life – The Best Thing From Isolation

The pandemic has turned the world in a weird, unsettling direction leaving us all with a touch of vertigo. We’re stranded in Fiji (not a bad place to be stranded, we know). The news has become a constant stream of coronavirus themes and just when we thought things couldn’t get any grimmer…we found the saddest thing yet. A tiny pip-squeak, suffering in silence.

But that’s where the sadness ends because we saved that little pip’s life.

You know what they say, “you go to the market for bananas and come home with a cat”. Ok, perhaps only when in Fiji. But what a fateful find! I would like to say that we saved Pip but the truth is, she has saved us.

Nothing like a downtrodden kitten with an unbroken spirit to remind us of what’s really important. Health, a belly full of food, a safe place to curl up, and little love is all we need.

Pip had a tough start in life but we have been spoiling her rotten ever since the day we picked her up at the market. She is sweet as can be and chock-full of personality. If you are interested in having Pip be a part of your family, please contact Animals Fiji:

Let’s Save 10 Animals in Fiji Together!

Animals Fiji is a non-profit welfare agency for animals. Their goal is to reduce the epidemic of stray and diseased roaming dog and cat populations that plague villages, towns, and rural areas, through spay/neuter programs.

All while ensuring that basic veterinary services and animal care education are available to as many Fijians as possible.

Our goal is to raise $1,500 for Animals Fiji which will sponsor 10 animals. If you would like to help, there are three ways you can contribute.

  1. Donate directly to Animals Fiji and reference Pip or The Wynns in the description so they can track how much we’ve raised:
  2. Share this video! We earn money from the advertisements placed by YouTube on this video. We will donate ALL of the money to Animals Fiji. The more views, the more we earn, the more we donate.
  3. You may see a FUNDRAISER link (it’s only available in select countries) if you watch the video on YouTube, all funds accepted with this link go directly to Animals Fiji and YouTube pays the transaction fees…and that’s pretty cool.

Covid-19 Update In Fiji

Fiji has had a total of 18 coronavirus cases and ZERO deaths. There haven’t been any new cases of COVID-19 since April 21st. This means Fiji hasn’t had any new (confirmed) cases of coronavirus in over 30 days! Fingers crossed they announce us COVID Free soon!


Ups, downs and all around, we share it all.  We’re able to do so because people like you show up each week, read, watch, comment, share, shop our gear store and toss a tip in our production jar.  If you like what you see, there are lots of FREE ways you can show your support.  Thank you for being a part of the journey!
