Last year Stonyfield became a sponsor of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums SAFE program (Saving Animals from Extinction) to help educate kids and their families about endangered animals. Stonyfield aimed to bring kids everywhere up close and personal with the animal kingdom to learn about the conservation projects and efforts that are taking place to save these critical species – to in turn help kids learn how they can make a difference.
Now, Stonyfield is teaming up with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America to push their mission even further.
Over the next year, Stonyfield wants to help take kids from Boys & Girls clubs across the country for a day at one of America’s AZA accredited Zoos and Aquariums — and they’re asking for your help. During the campaign, Stonyfield will match every donation made up to $125,000. Essentially, doubling the impact of each donation.
Boys & Girls Clubs of America is committed to changing the lives of young people. When asked, 84% of Club members believe that they can make a difference in their community. And it’s not just talk. It’s been found that almost twice as many Club members in eighth, 10th and 12th grades volunteer at least monthly in comparison to their peers nationally. It’s no wonder that every dollar invested in Boys & Girls Clubs returns $9.60 in current and future earnings and cost savings to their community. Rest assured, your money will go far in their hands.
Trips like these give kids a chance to see and learn for themselves. Because a real-life polar bear is more than something you see on a tablet or screen and a tiger is more than a statistic. Stonyfield wants kids to know that an elephant is more than just a Saturday morning cartoon character, and they can help protect these animals and their ecosystems as the future leaders they are!
