Hello friends, followers, do-gooders. I have a favor to ask of you.
Besides being a part-time writer I also wear another hat. That of Vice-President of Operations for Fight for Rhinos. That is a self-anointed title I had to apply to myself when signing on to the organization but one I take seriously. Its my wife who does the real back-breaking work in regards to research, blogging, networking, fundraising, and brain storming with other conservationist to help the endangered Rhino from going extinct on this planet and NEVER coming back.
Can you believe it, an animal that has been around for 60 Millions years…basically a living Fossil, may go extinct in less than 20 years all because its horn is valued more than that of gold.
I think its tragic…to me the possible extinction of the Rhino and I don’t say this lightly is a summation of man’s ignorance, apathy, pride and arrogance on this planet.
The earth is big, YES very big. But so is our egos to think we can’t hurt it irrevocably.
Now this is where my favor comes in. It’s actually a small favor.
We have organized an Online Art Auction Charity in support of helping out with various on the ground Projects for the Rhino. I am asking two things of you MY FOLLOWERS….:)
FIRST – GO CHECK IT OUT ….! Its starts June 1st for bidding, but you can check out the pieces right now. Right HERE .. Some are pretty cool and we still have more pieces from talented artists coming in to add to the collection. Some are high priced and some are low priced but all fairly priced for that artist’s work. There is even a piece of Art done by a Rhino….:)
SECOND – To garner interest in this Art Auction we are doing a Thunderclap campaign which is set to go BOOM on May 28th three days before June 1st before the auction to enable us to reach almost a million people or more about the event. Basically the Thunderclap works like this. You go to the site specifically for our event and click one of three social media sites you wish to broadcast our message through to your followers on that particular day. The three outlets are Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr or you can do all THREE! (each one counts separately)
We have a goal of getting 250 people to sign up . RIGHT NOW we are at about 150 people…. We really need those other 100 people to make this work…..SO Please ( I am now on my knees) sign on to our THUNDERCLAP…it actually only takes a second to click it and is completely safe btw regarding security and privacy.
Thank you very much. I hope you take the time over this long weekend to help us out and the Rhino as well… 🙂
P.S I believe the Rhino is a Unicorn…a fat one but a Unicorn…:)
