Fox Fam, many of you know that 15% of all our profits are always donated to charities that focus on preventing animal cruelty. This month we’ve decided to do something BIG.
For the entire month of February, 100% of our online sales will be donated to charity. And to help make donating even more accessible during February, we’re excited to offer free shipping on all orders within the US for the entire month!
Like many of you, we were shocked and devastated when we first heard about the bushfire crisis in Australia starting in December. At that time, wildfires had already been burning for a long time, yet the fires were under-reported so there was little awareness outside of Australia. Now, awareness has skyrocketed, and much of the world is striving to help. The news of an estimated one billion animals, as of the end of January, losing their lives in the fires was especially discouraging - as animal lovers, the thought of these animals suffering, of endangered species suddenly going extinct, is truly heartbreaking. We knew immediately we had a responsibility to help, even half a world away. In January, we upped our donation to 25% of our profits, and our amazing Fox Fam was so supportive! Knowing how important these efforts were not only to us but to all of you, we decided we could do a lot more. Not only to help in Australia but to help all animals.
For the month of February, 100% of all of our online sales are being donated to four organizations that are dedicated to ending animal suffering. The first three of which are currently assisting with aid efforts in Australia.
For the first week of February, we continued our donation to the International Fund for Animal Welfare, which is currently working to rescue injured and displaced wildlife affected by the bushfires in New South Wales and Victoria, the two locations most affected by bushfires. IFAW is one of the charities that normally receives a portion of our regular donations, and for the majority of January received a total of 25% of our profits in donations to help aid their disaster relief efforts. We’re proud to continue helping them pursue justice for animals everywhere.
In the second week, we will be donating to Friends of the Australian Koala Foundation, which is the principal non-profit, non-governmental organization that is dedicated to the conservation of the koala, and its habitat. Currently, they are working to save and rehabilitate injured koalas, as well as pushing for the Koala Protection Act to be signed into law which would help ensure the preservation of the koala’s habitat and start a recovery plan to help rebuild the decimated koala population.
For week three, our sales will be going to the Center for Disaster Philanthropy and their Global Recovery Fund, which is actively aiding in some of the most critical needs of those affected by the bushfires, such as displaced Australian residents and volunteer firefighters in need of supplies and equipment. After all, it takes a lot of support to ensure that the folks on the ground doing the hardest work are able to make the biggest impact possible! This is one of the highest rated charities we found when doing research on who we could donate to for maximum impact.
Finally, in the last week of February we will be donating to Animal Place. While the rapid loss of biodiversity and animal life in Australia is an unprecedented tragedy, we can’t lose sight of the animals suffering in other ways every day, all over the world. Animal Place is one of the largest farm animal rescues in the United States, and the animals they save and rehabilitate are just as deserving of our compassion and support.
We’re glad to help in whatever way we can, but these efforts wouldn’t be possible without you, our amazing Fox Fam! Thank you for your support as we work to do our part to make the world a better place for everyone, humans and animals alike!
