BENEFITING: World Wildlife Fund
Like many of you, I was outraged when I heard the story of the killing of Cecil the lion by a trophy hunting dentist from Minnesota. It is truly sad, and as one does in this digital age, I took to the interwebs to learn more. Cruising through Twitter I came across angry tweets by Ricky Gervais and Sharon Osbourne, I saw a video of Jimmy Kimmel nearly coming to tears, and I read about the nasty things people were writing on Yelp about this dentist. All of this stoked my anger and deepened my outrage. If only there was something I could do!
And that's when it hit me, there is something I can do. Ranting on Twitter, venting my anger on Facebook, it might make me feel better but it doesn't help anything. It doesn't train an anti-poaching ranger or buy land for conservation. Which brings me to my point--let's use this opportunity to do some good. That is why I'm creating the DoIt4Cecil campaign. All funds from #DoIt4Cecil will be donated to the World Wildlife Fund to help ensure engangered animals are around for future generations.
Will you join me? Together, we can make a difference.
