OMG!

No, we're not just excited, that is the name of a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the preservation of endangered species founded by brother and sister team of Carter and Olivia.

What's more impressive than two children founding an animal protection organization? How about that both are under the age of ten (Carter is 9 while Olivia is 7)! Way to go you two!

It all began when they started adopting cheetahs in Africa. Soon they learned 1,000 other species were endangered and wanted to do something about it.

They've done some great things already, such as collecting supplies needed to help the seabirds and other animals caught up in the BP oil spill, raising funds to help pay for the security forces needed to protect the last remaining Black Rhinos, purchasing of materials to continue the efforts of the Ann Van Dyke Cheetah Center in South Africa, and funding the OMG Student Educational Outreach Program.

These two are a great example of what ALL of us can do! This has to be a team effort! The animals of the world have just as much right to be here as we do!

We're proud of you Carter and Olivia! Keep it up!
