This holiday season, as you are braving the stores looking for holiday gifts, or surfing the web, why not consider giving gifts that also help out a great cause.
I am a BIG TIME animal lover. I love all creatures, great and small. If money was no object, I would have my own animal rescue, taking in all creatures that need a happy, healthy, loving home. Until I win the lottery I have to be content with our six cats, two frogs and giant Goldfish.
I am happy to support any organization that helps out animals. Once such organization is the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
WWF is one of the world’s leading conservation organizations, working in nearly 100 countries for over half a century. With the support of more than 5 million members worldwide, WWF is dedicated to delivering science-based solutions to preserve the diversity and abundance of life on Earth, halt the degradation of the environment and combat climate change.
Did you know that the World Wildlife Fund has plenty of wonderful items that would make great gifts for children and adults on your holiday shopping list? Their holiday gifts also give back.
Here is some more details.
World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is making gift-giving easy and rewarding this holiday season. Their holiday gifts als also gifts that give back by helping to support conservation work taking place around the world to protect wildlife, wild places and people. They
The WWFGifts catalog lets supporters select from more than 300 wildlife and nature-themed gifts. Funds from purchases go to help WWF’s conservation work on the ground ($.83 of every dollar goes directly to WWF’s work in the field). Your support will continue to help WWF protect nature for wildlife and people across the world.
The World Wildlife Fund has been around for a very long time. They have added some new gift ideas this year that might be of interest to some readers. They include adorable elephant slippers, adopt a peacock, cozy panda oversized snuggle hoodie, snare wire bracelet, or an adorable sloth pillow.
The slippers look so comfy, and the peacock and sloth are so cute!
Here are some other great gift examples.
One of WWF’s most popular gift options are their symbolic species adoption kits. By “symbolic” they mean that you are not adopting a specific creature, but rather the funds go to help the species as a whole. Of course, it would be cool to think you could adopt your own tiger or penguin. LOL!
WWF’s species adoption kits make for a great year-end treat for anyone who loves animals. There are more than 100 species, ranging from favorites such as tigers, pandas, and polar bears to new offerings like the vaquita dolphins, ostrich or flying foxes!
All symbolic adoption donations made through the gift catalog come with a formal adoption certificate, a color photo of the adopted species and a species description card. Adoptions of $60 or more come with a soft animal plush of the adopter’s choosing and are shipped free to anywhere that the United States Postal Service delivers within the U.S. and its territories. Symbolic adoption donations levels range from $25 to $250, with gift proceeds directly funding WWF’s conservation work around the world.
In addition to these gift ideas, there are also their “buckets.” The wooden buckets come with three adorable, plush, snuggly creatures. I say creatures because one of the buckets is a bucket full of frogs. As a frog owner (we have two dwarf African aquatic frogs that we love).
The wood, FSC-certified bucket comes with three plush toys. Available buckets are: Tub of Cubs, Bucket of Frogs, African Wildlife Tub, and their most popular bucket consisting of a panda, polar bear, and a tiger.
I was sent the African Wildlife Tub to review. The tub comes with an elephant, tiger and a giraffe.
Each plush is super soft and snuggly! Not to mention they are ADORABLE!
I am not sure of the age requirements for this product, but as long as a child doesn’t put things in their mouth, this set would make a great gift for toddlers all the way up to adults. Yes, I said adults. I’m an adult and I absolutely love this set. I plan on displaying it on my desk after the holidays (there is no room on my desk right now – too many holiday decorations).
If you prefer, you can also build your own bucket and choose four different plush toys. These are the same plush from the symbolic adoption page. You can also choose whether you want them in a tub or a gift bag.
The gifts from World Wildlife Fund are a win-win situation. You are getting a wonderful gift for those on your holiday shopping list AND you are helping to support conservation work from around the world.
