Each and every one of us can make a difference for animals. Today, October 4th, people around the world unite under this belief. To mark World Animal Day, Moneymailme has added three new charitable causes you can donate for.
Beginning today, you can help protect the threatened White Rhino in South Africa. 668 rhinos were illegally killed in South Africa in 2012. In the first five months of 2013, 367 were killed. This is alarming and unsustainable! This project aims to assist cash-strapped game reserves with rangers and equipment they need to effectively protect these rhinos. You can donate for this cause here.
The second cause we’ve added today allows you to help protect tigers in India. The country’s amazing biodiversity has long faced threats from poachers using simple yet horribly effective hunting devices-traps & snares. A simple instrument consisting of an anchored wire with a sliding noose, a snare is camouflaged with vegetation and set up on animal trails. The noose slips across the animal’s body part and tightens, eventually causing gangrene. This project aims to eradicate the menace of snares and traps from the forests so that wild animals can walk the jungle trails safely. Make your donation for this cause here.
The third cause comes from Fellow Mortal and is named “Save the Trees/Save the Sanctuary”. Fellow Mortals provides care for 2,000 injured and orphaned animals every year. The final step in their recovery comes when they move from the hospital to habitats in the outdoor sanctuary. The sanctuary is set back from a busy road, and large trees keep the sanctuary quiet, peaceful and safe by buffering traffic noise, screening human activity and providing privacy. A transmission company is threatening to remove trees and vegetation, putting the wildlife in the sanctuary at risk of injury. If you’d like to support this cause, please do it here.
We, at Moneymailme, see that people want to make a tangible difference in their lives, and being able to listen to or join peers in making an immediate contribution helps the causes while sharing goodwill and building community. Introducing Charitable Causes was the natural step forward in helping people reach people. For the first time, you can use a social app not just for your own benefit, but to help others. Through our partnerships with various foundations and charities around the world, you can have an updated version of the causes, by categories, with all the details needed. You can donate in real time, with no cost, and make a difference!
GlobalGiving has made it possible for local organizations to access the funding, tools, training, and support they need to become more effective and make the world a better place through charitable causes. Thanks to our partnership with Globalgiving, Moneymailme plans to facilitate response for those affected and help the humanitarian system worldwide. More causes, here.
Thank you for making a difference!
