Volunteer your remarketable gifts and become more marketable!

Volunteer and Market Yourself…Remarkably

“Remarkable Marketable Mehelps you share your remarkable gifts volunteering, making you more marketable along the way.

By Jean Robb

I didn’t have the best childhood. We didn’t have much, so if you needed something you had to find a way to get it. I started working at 11 years old selling candy door to door. I know very scary right, but at 11 years old all I knew was I had to sell a certain amount of candy before I could go home. When I knocked on a door, out came my foot and I didn’t move it until you bought a box of candy. The skills I learned from my difficult childhood, (my lemons) really became a blessing (my lemonade).

I learned at a really young age that persistence will open many doors. As an adult I have walked out on a stage with a tiger after Zig Ziglar and talked to over 2,000 people about overcoming their fears. I know you must be thinking…a tiger? I have volunteered for over 15 years with big cat sanctuaries and have learned you can do something you really love while helping others in remarkable ways. In today’s economy you hear lots of people say they can’t find a job. So what happens?

The longer you’re out of work, you start to lose your contacts. You’re not keeping up with the day-to-day changes in your trade. You’re simply out of the loop. The longer you’re in this position the more the fear sets in. What if I can’t find a job? I have so much to offer, how do I get someone to talk to me? Well as you can see, fear can really take a hold of you, it makes you feel like a deer in the headlights. How do you overcome these things?

First off, STOP listening to the FEAR and STOP making EXCUSES. Look, I’ve made many of the same excuses when I’ve let fear be a part of my life. I now realize that the answer to overcoming the fear is to replace it with remarkable things you can be proud of. Instead of asking why would anyone want to hire me, ask yourself why not me?

After volunteering you could say. Look at the change I’ve made in the lives of others. Look what I’ve learned along the way. Look at the skills I’ve been taught while helping others. Look at the great people I’ve met. They’ve seen first hand the type of passion I put into any job I take on. So how will this work? I have made a commitment to bring you a volunteering opportunity at least once a week. The process of volunteering can be more complicated than people may think.

I have included in each story all the information I received and the direct contacts to make it really easy for you to get your foot in the door.Network, Network, Network” See how you can use that experience to build your resume.

"happy Cows" Kuhrettung Rhein Berg first cow sanctuary in North Rhine-Westphalia with a lot of love for the animals



to our website!

We appreciate your interest in our non-profit association

                                                                - Sanctuary for animals -
and we hope our spotted darlings will
win your hearts just as they won ours.

„It will take ages of love to make amends to
the animals for their services and merits to us.“

                                                                                (Christian Morgenstern)

We have set up a Paypal donations account :-)
Our cows are former dairy cows, who have not been inseminated since the summer of 2011 and therefore don't produce milk, any longer. A female bovine, who hasn't given birth (yet), is called a heifer. Of course, for now and for the future, they will not lead the typical life of 'livestock'!
If you want to get to know the cows, just click on their pictures :-)
Next to the portraits you will find short characterizations – written by the farmer's son.
Shared sponsorships starting as low as at a minimum 10 Euro per month.

1.)  Why are cows producing milk?
2.)  How long can a cow live?

3.)  How can I become a sponsor?
4.)  Can I visit my sponsored cow?
5.)  When will be the next farm party?
6.)  Which other animals are there on the farm?

1.)  Why are cows producing milk?
Milk and dairy products most often come from cows – most of us know this.
All of us (as long as we are not vegans) consume products, made from milk or containing milk, daily, without giving it a thought.
Very few know, how milk actually is “produced”:
  • Are you aware of the fact, that today's “high performance cows” only produce milk, when they are expecting a calf or just gave birth to one? So cows have to be pregnant again and again to produce milk.

  • In order to get all of the precious milk, the calves usually are separated right after birth from their mothers. This separation is traumatic for both, cow mothers and calves. Often they are mourning for weeks. We often witnessed cow mothers standing at the gate of the pasture, shouting for their calves for hours and days, even when the rest of the herd had already walked far off. Cows, like horses, are herd animals and usually will never stray far from their herd, as the herd is their protection.

  • Bull calves go into fattening soon after birth and are slaughtered; female calves will be brought up to face the same destiny as their mothers.
2.)  How long can a cow live?
A cow can live up to 20 years. We hope, our cows will reach this age :-)
3.)  How can I become a sponsor?
You will find sponsorship details under “donation”. There you can download a form, which you can send us via mail. Of course you can also send a scanned version via email. Until now, we are not able to offer a digital form to fill out, as your data will be handled with utmost care and safety, and we still have to take some measures, in order to transmit your data safely and coded.
You will find a link to this form on every cow's page.
4.)  Can I visit my sponsored cow?
Of course, you can visit the cows. As you are not allowed to enter the stable or pasture alone, we would like to ask you to make an appointment, beforehand. You can watch the cows from afar at any time from a hiking trail.
We would be happy to welcome you to the farm parties which we organize for all our cow friends.
5.)  When will be the next farm party?
Unfortunately, there is no date set for the next farm party. Of course as soon as a date is fixed, it will be published on the welcome page.
6.)  Which other animals are there on the farm?
Of course, our cows are not alone on the farm. Next to two dogs, cats, three chickens, a cock and two rabbits, more than 40 horses are living there.
