"Yesterday, I was grateful. Tomorrow, I'll be thankful. But for now, I'm blessed." - Unknown


The World Wildlife Fund is an organization whose main goal is to conserve nature and help people understand the importance of saving the environment. WWF was founded in April of 1961 in Morges, Switzerland with H.R.H. Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands becoming the organization's first president. This organization has been protecting nature for over 50 years and has no plans to stop anytime soon. 

"WWF's mission is to conserve nature and reduce the most pressing threats to the diversity of life on Earth. Our vision is to build a future where people live in harmony with nature."

By 2020, WWF plans on conserving the world's most ecologically important regions by working with others to: "protect and restore species and their habitats, strengthen local communities' ability to conserve the natural resources they depend on, transform markets and policies to reduce the impact of the production and consumption of commodities, ensure that the value of nature is reflected in decisions made by individuals, communities, governments and businesses, and to mobilize hundreds of millions of people to support conservation ."

WWF has partnered with Prizeo, a "technology enterprise" that works with celebrities and organizations to help raise awareness and money, to raise money to protect tigers in honor of Global Tiger Day (July 29, 2013). The grand prize: to be flown over to LA to enjoy a  $500 shopping spree at DASH with Khloe Kardashian. This is going to work similarly to the One Direction & Trekstock fundraiser; basically the more you donate the more prizes you're eligible to receive! For more info click here!

I really like the idea Prizeo has with combining these wonderful organizations with A-list celebrities in order to raise money for a great cause! So if you want to help save tigers go donate! (:
