Remember earlier this year when we wrote about Stonyfield becoming a sponsor of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums SAFE program? If not you can read about it HERE. Well, now Stonyfield is pairing up with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America to go even further. They want to take children from the Boys and Girls Clubs to one of the AZA accredited Zoos and Aquariums. For the duration of the campaign, Stonyfield will match each donation, up to $125,000. This will double each qualifying donation. This campaign began September 25th and will run to November 6th.
Boys and Girls Clubs of America are committed to changing lives. In a study it showed that 2x as many members in 8th, 10th and 12th grade volunteer at least monthly when compared to peers who are not members. Stonyfield wants to give kids like these the opportunity to experience first hand the wildlife and to encourage them to help protect these animals. They will see these animals in their natural habitat, rather than on a tablet or tv screen, and learn about how to help prevent the destruction of their ecosystems. By doing this, Stonyfield is helping prepare #FutureLeaders.
