Let’s Celebrate World Lemur Festival with $200 for Lemurs!

lemurs-win

Why yes, yes you did!

 

The Duke Lemur Center won first place in the Creations 4 Wildlife Conservation Challenge and will be getting extra money for every lemur bracelet sold this month. Originally the additional donation was only during the challenge … However, we decided to keep the extra $3 per Madagascar’s Jewel sold going all month long.

We thought this was the perfect way to help celebrate World Lemur Festival and these amazing little primates! For an animal that only inhabits one small island in the entire world, the loss of lemurs would be a tragedy.

The goal is to raise a minimum of $200 for the Duke Lemur Center by October 31, 2015.

Our standard donation of 40% plus the additional $3 for winning the Conservation Challenge means that we only need to sell 15 lemur bracelets to reach our goal.

You can help by purchasing a Madagascar’s Jewel bracelet of your own – we think they make the perfect fall accessory.

 

Already have your Madagascar’s Jewel? No problem, share our lemur goal with your friends or better yet, surprise them with a Creations 4 Wildlife bracelet of their own!

3-Day Conservation Challenge

One thing that has always been part of our conservation philosophy is to never turn down a challenge. To us, a challenge is one more way for Creations 4 Wildlife to help save endangered species, a way for us to really make a difference. To change things up a bit and make it fun we are going to challenge you, our customers, to make a difference for your favorite animal. You will decide which endangered species gets a little extra funding from Creations 4 Wildlife.

Here is how the challenge will work.

  • Conservation Challenge will run from Friday, October 9 through Sunday, October 11 (ending at midnight PST)
  • Every bracelet purchased will count as 1 (one) vote for your favorite animal (example: Boone bracelet = 1 vote for rhinos, Madagascar’s Jewel = 1 vote for lemurs, Serengeti Sunset = 1 vote for giraffes, etc)
  • Creations 4 Wildlife will post updates on social media so you can see who is in the lead and help your favorite animal win
  • Free shipping on all orders placed during the 3-day conservation challenge
  • The animal with the most votes at the end of the 3-day challenge will get an additional $3 for every bracelet sold, on top of the standard 40%, donated to their chosen organization.

Creations 4 Wildlife is Featured on the Lemur Conservation Network Blog!

It all started when I wrote my last post, about “Do Lemurs Need Creations 4 Wildlife’s Help?” When my mom tweeted this post, the Lemur Conservation Network saw it and said “If you decide to do a lemur bracelet, we would love to interview Dylan.” Once we confirmed the lemur bracelet would benefit the Duke Lemur Center and the release date of October 1, we got sent a set of interview questions from the Lemur Conservation Network. I then sat down and answered the six questions from the email and sent my answers to them.

Once they received my answers, they did something amazing. They wrote an entire blog post about me and Creations 4 Wildlife on their website. They wrote a blog post about me … a kid who started everything with a wish, a wish to save animals.

Madagascar's Jewel

I had no idea that this one email would have such a great outcome for Creations 4 Wildlife. I would like to thank the Lemur Conservation Network for writing about my fundraising and our new business Creations 4 Wildlife. Madagascar’s Jewel is a special bracelet and I really appreciate the support we have received from the organizations we are fundraising for. I look forward to working more with the Lemur Conservation Network and the Duke Lemur Center. Who knows, we might even release a bracelet that is dedicated to a specific lemur species.

2 simple ways you can help save animals & raise awareness

Awareness is one of the biggest hurdles faced in animal conservation. Creations 4 Wildlife is all about making a difference, not matter how small, so we are sharing two simple ways that you can raise awareness and help save animals for only a few dollars.

Even though many of us pay our bills online, there are still times that we need to mail something the old-fashioned way. The next time you buy stamps, ask for the Save Vanishing Species semipostal stamp. (cost is 55 cents) If your local post office is out, you can also purchase them online.

This is a first-class postage stamp and all proceeds over the current cost of a first-class stamp go directly to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to support the Multinational Species Conservation Fund. According to the USPS, as of October 2012, over $1.74 million has been raised for the cause. That’s amazing!

For more information on what conservation funds are supported by this stamp visit the US Postal Service website.

Another great way to support animal conservation and raise awareness is to follow your favorite organizations on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. By simply sharing a post, liking a picture or re-tweeting something you find interesting online, you may catch the attention of someone and before you know it a domino effect is in place.
