Bid for A Greener Future with WWF
It has been quite a long time since I got myself involved in an advocacy project and so when I was invited to participate in a project that The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) was doing in celebration of its 50 years of conservation, I immediately jumped at the opportunity.
What really motivated me to say yes to this project was Joe, the dog I adopted last year. Raising him made me realize that while he and his brother, Bubba, are quite lucky they live in a home, are fed and are safe, many other animals are not. Not only that, the places that these animals make their homes in are not protected either, all because of what we call “modernization”. And so I decided that my project this year will be on going green in whatever small way I can.
However, while individual efforts at going green, such as taking steps to choose earth friendly products, recycle, and so on and so forth, are important, we can also be part of a bigger solution by teaming up with organizations that can put together individual efforts into collective action. One such organization is the WWF.
In celebration of its 50th year, the World Wildlife Fund invites us all to bid for a greener future with an online fundraising auction, GREENER AT 50, via Ebay Philippines. Proceeds of the project will benefit the WWF-Philippines’ environmental sustainability projects. Up for grabs in the online auction are limited edition items from celebrities, such as a signed pair of pointe shoes by prima ballerina, Lisa Macuja-Elizalde, and other memorabilia from celebrities and personalities including the Philippine Volcanoes Team, Pat Dy, Sara Black, Boy Abunda. You can also get the opportunity to immerse in exclusive WWF sites and discover nature from your own experience!
Check out www.ebay.ph/wwfgreenerat50 to view the items for auction and get ready to start bidding for a greener environment.
This year, let’s all be part of the solution and bid for the future with WWF-Philippines.
