THE STORY:

The tortoise traveled all around the world. It took a very long time, but he did it. And he discovered something quite terrible:

Tortoises are in trouble!

They are dying in record numbers. The ones who survive are scared and alone. Modern society moves pretty fast, and the tortoises can't keep up!

But the tortoise discovered something else, too: American Tortoise Rescue.

Founded by a husband and wife, American Tortoise Rescue lives up to its name: since 1990, they have rescued more than 3,000 tortoises. And they organize #WorldTurtleDay, which helps tortoises and turtles around the globe.

But they need your help!

For just a few dollars, you could save the life of a tortoise! So the next time you think about buying some luxury good, like a yellow-curry sandwich, please consider donating that money to American Tortoise Rescue instead.

Just think of how much lettuce a few bucks could buy! Enough to make a tortoise smile, that's for sure. So please donate anything you can.

The guru said, "I didn't use to support tortoises, but then I personally befriended one. Now I give a few bucks to help them. Or, at least, I provide a nice quote to wrap things up and incite people to action."

He added, "Donate now!"
