Unique, personalized e-gifts help save animals from suffering and cruelty
BOSTON, MASS. – February 11, 2011 – This year, forget the red roses, boxes of chocolates and heart-shaped balloons – instead, give your Valentine a meaningful, unique gift that lasts long after Feb. 14.
Really Wild Gifts, from The World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), are socially-conscious, eco-friendly gifts that help save animals from cruelty and abuse. Simply visit www.ReallyWildGifts.org, select an animal and donation amount, and we’ll send your loved one an e-card describing how the gift will help animals around the world – such as delivering aid to animals after disasters, building sanctuaries and funding mobile veterinary clinics.
Gifts start at only $20 and can be personalized with one of several animal images, or you can upload your own photo. Everything is purchased and delivered online, meaning that you don’t have to worry about shipping costs and can rest assured that the proceeds go to the animals – not to postage or production costs.
In addition to purchasing gifts for friends or family members, you can also create your own Really Wild Gifts “Wish List” to share with others via email, Facebook and Twitter.
For more examples of WSPA’s w0rk over the past year – including disaster relief work in Haiti and building a bear sanctuary in Pakistan – please visit http://www.wspa-usa.org/latestnews/2010/achievementsAW2010.aspx.
