EVENT DATE: Aug 24, 2013
WildAid persuades people not to buy products made out of endangered species -- products such as ivory, rhino horn, tiger skins, and shark fin soup. WildAid uses high-quality media campaigns voiced by trend-setting celebrities, and they do it on a shoe-string budget.
That's why I chose WildAid to raise $ for when I went on a 400-mile Walk for Elephants last August and September with the African Wildlife Trust. The Walk for Elephants is over, but I still want to reach my fundraising goal. And I'm still convinced that WildAid is doing the most to save the elephants -- all without firing bullets (except on set).
WildAid has a track record of changing hearts and minds. Their campaigns in Taiwon persuaded people there to stop buying rhino horn because they now felt it would "bring shame" upon the country. Restaurants in China are reporting drastic reductions in sales of shark fin soup people are getting educated about it and are refusing to buy it.
WildAid reaches millions and millions of people -- in fact, they're now the leading environmental communicator in Asia -- yet they do it on a shoestring budget. (5 stars on Charity Navigator.) In 2011,
You can help save the elephants AND make me happy by donating now. Any and every amount counts.
