Fundraiser & Print Giveaway

Supporting Ian's Legacy

Last week, conservation lost a true hero. Ian's sudden death has left us all devastated. 

Ian was one of the most passionate, charismatic and dedicated people I have ever met. He had an endless love for the rhinos of Lewa and of course, for the Kenyan skies. 

In his memory, Ian's wife Stephanie has created a fundraiser with the goal to help disadvantaged Kenyan children achieve their dreams of becoming a conservationist or exploring the skies as a pilot, just as Ian did. 

In order to support this initiative, I will be running a print giveaway. For an entry of just £2, you will be in with the chance of winning: As Old As Time - a Limited Edition print. This photograph was taken in Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, where Ian was my research partner during my all rhino studies. The print will be number 2 of 10 ever printed. It will be 60x40cm.

Every single penny raised through this print giveaway will be donated to Ian Lemaiyan's Legacy

You can buy as many tickets as you wish.

Entry will close on February 28th at 7pm (GMT).

Winner will be announced on March 1st.

Thank you so much for your support. Ian, this is for you.

To find out more about Ian Lemaiyan's Legacy, please continue reading:

Ian was a Kenyan pilot and conservationist who determined his destiny at a young age - he wanted to be a conservation pilot, protecting beloved wildlife while flying high across the Kenyan skies. And so he did.

Before Ian died, he and his wife Stephanie spoke several times about dreams. Dreams of boys and girls like him - who wish to do great things for nature and are interested in aviation - but life, due to unfortunate financial circumstances, holds them back. Ian himself would not have been able to realize his dreams if he had not been ‘gifted’ flying school fees to obtain his pilot’s license. 

Clever, determined, and tech saavy, Ian posted a Go-Fund Me page asking for donations to pursue his flying dreams. Within hours two of Ian’s Instagram followers told him to take down the post and they would fund his PPL in full. Ian and Stephanie had decided that once they were financially able, they  would do the same thing and ‘gift’ other bright students a chance to shine.  

As we all grieve Ian's departure, Stephanie believe the best way to honour him and his memory is to find other 'Ians' out there and support them through their journey. She has started a fundraiser to do exactly that. Every penny raised will go towards identifying and supporting young and enthusiastic kids with potential, and help propel their career in aviation and conservation. If you'd like to help us keep Ian's memory alive, as boldly as he lived, consider donating any amount towards this cause. It's what he would have wanted.
