‘The Donkey Song’ Sounds Like a Joke, But It’s Not [VIDEO]

The Donkey Song

The other day I received a press release with the subject line: ‘Christmas Song Saves Donkeys.’ I had to click on it.

The email said, “British-born Canadian singer and songwriter Gerry Asmus has just released a Christmas song “Who Is This Child? (The Donkey Song)” which he is hoping will raise funds for Safe Haven for Donkeys in the Holy Land, a charity helping donkeys in Israel and Palestine.”

Now, who wouldn’t keep reading after an opening line like that? I looked it up on YouTube, because I don’t trust links in emails like that, and this is what I found:

The video led me to the website for Safe Haven for Donkeys, a UK charity started by a former British Airways employee who adopted a badly wounded donkey she encountered while in Israel.

Currently, her charity, Safe Haven for Donkeys in the Holy Land, a UK-registered charity, has for the last 13 years been reaching out to donkeys in distress in Israel and the Palestinian Territories.  Alongside the charity’s donkey sanctuary in Israel, home to more than 175 donkeys, the charity provides free veterinary care for working equines in towns and villages on both sides of the Palestinian border, including of course Bethlehem.

What I thought was a joke turned out to be real. It just goes to show, you just never know.
