To celebrate the 200th birthday of Charles Darwin, a philanthropist in the UK has promised to double any donations made to six different wildlife charities on charity website, www.theBigGive.org.uk.
This means that anyone giving £5 or over will have the same amount donated to their chosen charity on their behalf. Donation doubling will start at 10am on Monday, February 23rd and will finish when £50,000 has been spent.
The chosen charities are Project African Wilderness (PAW), The Born Free Foundation, Orangutan Foundation, People’s Trust for Endangered Species, Wilderness Foundation UK and The Gorilla Organization.
These projects care for and protect a huge range of wildlife and wild spaces, including polar bears, elephants, tigers, lions, rhinos, dolphins and turtles.
Anyone wishing to double their donation or find our more about the chosen charities is advised to visit www.theBigGive.org.uk at 10.00am on Monday, February 23rd.
