Rhinos are desperate for your help.
It’s incredibly sad but these prehistoric-looking creatures are going extinct FAST. The situation in South Africa is critical with a rhino being killed every seven hours just for their horn. The rate of poaching is getting MUCH higher every single year and if we don’t step in now and help these amazing creatures, they will be gone.
Luckily, organizations are on the ground and making a difference. Some of these groups include Travellers Building Change, Green Travel Media and the Great Plains Foundation who have launched a massive campaign to raise enough money (and awareness) to help relocate the rhinos to Botswana for their protection. Click here for some stats.
It’s amazing what a group of passionate caring people can accomplish but we need your help!
How can you help?
We need you to donate a little bit of money and in return, you have a chance to win some absolutely fantastic prizes! More than 20 corporate sponsors have donated more than $30,000 worth of prizes including tours and hotels in 11 different countries spanning 5 continents. Sweet!!
All you have to do is donate. A mere $20 will get you 10 entries and donating more will get double or quadruple your chances. The odds are actually quite good and the cause is extremely important. We can’t afford to lose these exotic animals.
Deadline is March 1st!
