soap for teachers around the world.
I’m reminded every day how much I love my work! Today, we are shipping 150 bars of our Kilimanjaro soap to the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW’s) world headquarters in Massachusetts to give to school teachers around the world. An additional 650 bars will be sent next month.
This year, we were asked to form a unique partnership by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) to create a product line that would raise money for their Animal Action Campaign for the Endangered African Elephant. Our “Kilimanjaro” product line was the result. Our goal is to raise $10,000 in one year’s time ( moksacampaigns.org.)
Elephants are the largest land animals on our planet. Yet the future of this mighty species is remarkably fragile: In 1900, there were more than 10 million elephants worldwide. By 1979, less than 1.4 million. Today, fewer than 650,000 elephants survive.
In addition to relief efforts such as relocation, and securing habitats for elephants in National Parks, IFAW has created their Animal Action Campaign for the endangered African Elephant.
The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) Animal Action Education program will engage some 5,000,000 students, teachers and families in more than 15 countries to learn about and celebrate elephants, which are among the smartest, most social and emotional of all animals. The program will also introduce young people to the challenges that threaten the survival of this remarkable species, including habitat loss, poaching fueled by ivory trade and conflict with human communities.
We’re honored to be a part of this program. And more so, we’re grateful to do be a part of what we love to do, what we live for, what we talk about all of the time. Making a difference in a world we wish to become better. Who knew soap could do that?!
