Hey readers and animal lovers! Look to your left at that curious lemur! The Wildlife Conservation Society has graicously purchased a month-long ad. Can we show them love by clicking on their ad and checking out their site? Also, don't forget to visit the Bronx Zoo, New York Aquarium, Central Park Zoo, Queens Zoo or the Prospect Park Zoo this summer!!
This ad pleases me deeply because my lifelong goal is to be an animal philanthropist* and it felt like just as I was looking into what WCS was all about, they reached out to me! I've been researching organizations that would be best to support based on my intellectual interests, emotional connection and the charity's track record such as how much they allocate to programs versus salaries. So far, I have a short list of two: 1) WCS and 2) ASPCA. If you have any thoughts, let me know!
* FYI, you need not be loaded to be a philanthropist There are tons of worthy charities that would be delighted to have your $10 a month donation! Let's consume less and donate more [end of preachy message].
