  • This is my first review posted to Google, ever. I've never been as compelled as I am for this organization. A colleague posted a photo of a Gentle Barn farm animal she was sponsoring from afar on Facebook, and I was hooked. Hours later, I had signed up to sponsor my own. Somehow, I completely messed up my online sponsorship submission. The Gentle Barn called me the next morning to tell me that I had signed up to sponsor Addison the donkey for 12 months - every month. (Making Addison quite a rich gent!) They were so prompt and responsive about ensuring that my sponsorship order was straightened out, and what they are doing is so incredible. I can't wait to hear more about their success.
