Every year, when a new baby has been born in our family, I donate a gift on their behalf. In years past, when we’ve had little ones in our lives, I’ve done the same for a first birthday. I think it’s a meaningful way to honour someone in your life, while making a difference.
That’s why I love the WWF wildlife adoptions. The gift helps conservation efforts, plus, the little package that the gift recipient receives is a lasting memory that a meaningful difference is being made on their behalf, long after the holiday season or the birthday has passed.
The WWF Adoption program has introduced some new species this year. The Canada Lynx, Atlantic Puffin, three-toed sloth and the red fox, in addition to the others who are available to adopt.
We were gifted the Canada Lynx, and I love how my kids instantly fell in love with the stuffed animal. But they also asked questions. Why was it on the list of species that WWF was helping? Luckily, information that came in the package was insightful.
Each adoption kids is about $40-$50 and comes with a wildlife plush, reusable bag, poster (which is also an info pamphet) and adoption certificate that is personalized.
In addition, for the first time, a card-only gift option is available for the person in your life who may not need a stuffie, but still wants to support the animals and would appreciate such a meaningful gift.
This holiday season, you can give this gift to someone special in your life, and make a difference. Free shipping is available when two or more adoptions kits are shipped to the same address (ready for you to wrap and give!) and a partial tax receipt will be issued per gift.
For more information and to see the full list of species, visit the WWF website. There are the new additions, plus many other animals that need support.
Tip: If you are ordering for the holiday season, orders must be received by December 11 for rural addresses and December 13 for urban addresses to be received in time for Christmas!
Our new friend, Lynk (the Lynx) has been snuggling up with my daughter every night this week. I’m happy that to share information about this program with you and hope it helps cross a few people off your shopping list this year.
Disclosure: This post was done in partnership with WWF voluntarily because I wanted to share with readers their message and the opportunity to support wildlife. I did receive an adoption kit as a thank you.
