What do we do at Lets Adopt?
We try to change everything.
We found a piece of the status quo, something that bothered us, something that needed to be improved something that was itching to be changed, and we changed it.
We try to make big, permanent, important change.
Our final aim is to improve the treatment of animals in Turkey. We want to create a country where every dog and cat will be adopted instead of being locked up in some shelter or drop in some far away forest by a municipality
Lets Adopt has gone to the community and connected with people who care about animals, people not previously involved in animal shelters, people with passion. Progress is made at a fast rate.Our aim is to completely transform the community.
Creating an idea, spreading an idea is not a simple task.
We signify change. From before to after. We are living a moment in time when ideas are created and implemented differently.
We believe in Leadership. The way we make change is not by using money or power to influence a system but by leading.
We have created a tribe.
Lets Adopt Its about leading and connecting people with an idea, creating our own tribe.
Tribes can change our world, tribes can change politics, align numbers of people not because you force them to to do something against their will but because they wanted to connect.
Lets Adopt found something worth changing and we assembled a tribe that spread an idea that became something far bigger than ourselves, creating a movement.
Lets Adopt is not just an organization, it’s a movement.
Lets Adopt has thousands of people around the country willing to work on behalf of animals and spread our ideas.
We didnt need millions of people..we only needed a thousand people who cared enough to spread the idea time and again.
Lets Adopt is not a mass movement, that is not what it’s about. What we are trying to do is finding the true believers. We want quality, not quantity.
We have not invented animal lovers. We merely decided to lead them. One and a half years ago we funded a group that was disconnected but who already had a yearning. We just organized people and created a movement.
We are heretics. We are transgressors. We looked at the status quo, we looked at the animal shelters run by glorified animal hoarders and said: this cannot continue. We can’t abide this status quo. We dont like it. We were willing to stand up and move things forward. Instead of keeping our head down, instead of believing those who told us this wouldn’t work we organized things differently. Our members looked at the status quo, they could see it made no sense and realized how much they wanted to be connected. We could see we could not do this by ourselves, but if we could get other people to join us then together we could all achieve amazing results.
We told a story to people who wanted to hear it. We connected a tribe of people who were desperate to be connected to each other. We lead a movement and make changes.
We needed to upset people. Why? Because If you are not upsetting anyone you are not changing the status quo. We build connections, realizing that most of us needed to connect with people like us. We lead. By focusing on leading is where change comes.
We created a working group with members that would work individually to make the group grow and spread our ideas, members that would donate their time and skills to make us stronger.
Why did we choose to help animals? Because its important to us. The people that surround us needed the connection, needed the leadership, it made a difference to them.
We didn’t need permission from people to lead them. People were waiting to be shown were to go next.
Lets Adopt has challenged the status quo. We have built a unique culture. We connected people to one another. And we did one last thing.. we committed. We committed to the cause, we committed to the tribe, we committed to our people, we committed to the animals.
I want to ask you to do something for me. What I want you to do is to enlarge our movement, to talk to everyone around you about us, to spread the idea that we can improve the life of all animals in Turkey by acting together.
The animals need it.
