About Giving Back is an informative conversation with Board Member Laura Rombauer and her daughter Ransome Rombauer about their relationship with the organization. Laura tells of her travels to India with Brooke USA to visit the brick kilns to witness the donkey situation first hand . During the second half of the episode, Brooke USA Celebrity Ambassador and TV personality Ingrid Hoffmann discusses her work and background in philanthropy, as well as her new cookbook, Latin Comfort Foods Made Healthy.
The mission of Brooke USA is to significantly improve the welfare of working horses, donkeys and mules and the people they serve throughout Asia, Africa, the Middle East, the Americas and the Caribbean by raising funds and responsibly directing them to the areas of greatest need.
Brooke USA accomplishes this through a holistic approach to funding which includes capacity building, sustainability programming, female empowerment and international advocacy. Brooke USA connects private philanthropists with their passion for helping relieve the suffering of working equines and their owners. Brooke USA raises funds to support a wide variety of programs for working horses, donkeys and mules to help them become (and remain) healthy and happy, now and in the long-term, which also benefits the poor families who depend on those animals to help them earn a living.
