This week we joined the amazing team of Little Steps Matter for the second time on a street feed. We saw first-hand how they are absolutely beyond incredible, caring for the street animals. We spoke with founder Sabine Kaufmann and they are in high need for donations. Little Steps Matter is severely underfunded for the work they do, and so every single donation makes a HUGE difference to the animals they support. Just €8 will pay for 1 dog to eat for a week, and €10 will pay for a cat's annual vaccinations. So we teamed up to organize a 10 days Donation Sale for Little Steps Matter!
We are donating 100% of the profit of this Donation Sale in the next 10 days - 5 till 13 November - to Little Steps Matter. So you can shop our special sale items in our online sunkissed store and know that you donate at the same time! And we invite you to donate or even become a sponsor to support the sweet Bali dogs and cats on the streets and in local families that need your help.
Or donate directly via:
Follow @littlestepsmatter on Instagram to see all the amazing work they do.
About Little Steps Matter
Little Steps Matter was founded in 2016 by Sabine Kaufmann, a lifelong animal lover and defender of animal rights. Originally from Germany, at the age of 6 Sabine started to bring home animals in need. Since arriving in Bali in 1989, Sabine was very distressed by the amount of sick and injured dogs and cats she saw roaming the streets and took them in for healing and rehabilitation, before looking for suitable owners to adopt these abandoned animals. Founding Little Steps Matter became the natural next step, allowing Sabine to devote her life to helping animals in Bali on a wider scale, in order for more animals to have a second chance at a happy and healthy life.
Together with the Little Steps Matter team, Sabine coordinates a street feeding and treatment schedule, and co-hosts mass sterilization days, along with rescuing vulnerable cats and dogs in need and providing rehabilitation as required. This is facilitated with the support of foster carers in her own network, or at her own home. Once ready, rescues are then adopted into loving forever homes. Educating the local community about animal welfare is also key, to minimise animal suffering long-term.
Little Steps Matter's Mission is to eradicate suffering of animals in Bali through 3 areas: Feeding/Treatment, Sterilization and Education/Adoption. Thank you for joining us on this journey to help animals in need throughout Bali!

Use the 'Donate Now' button to contribute a monthly, annual or one-off donation, or consider fundraising: a cake sale, sponsored car wash, or even selling unwanted items on eBay, could make all the difference to an animal in need!
Raise funds for Little Steps Matters by asking your family, friends and network, throwing an event, giving a donation-based class, there are no limits to your creativity to support us by donating your time by raising funds.
6. Become a Sponsor
Little Steps Matter is looking for the support of pet care brands to help with food and medical supplies, and people brands to help us to spread the word about Little Steps Matter, via collaborations. The less money they spend on food and supplies, the more money they have for sterilizations, operations, rescues and more.
