the 1 Bottle = $1 TO SAVE WILDLIFE campaign

The Harp Seal or the Snow Seal is a threatened species, one which Dawn loves.

Dawn - Protector of Creation - To Raise Half A Million Dollars in Effort to Protect Endangered Wildlife!

Care about animals? Wash your dishes with liquid soap? Well, put the two together and you've got the equation for a brilliant solution. The problem is how to raise money to protect endangered species, and other animals, such as the Harp Seal, seen at left, which are threatened by human activity. Hunters prize this animal (and others, such as tigers and leopards) for their fur coats, as they have done for centuries. But as their populations become overwhelmed by other problems caused by human impact, such as habitat destruction and changes to their local ecosystems, it becomes more than these defenseless animals can face alone.

(Well, maybe they're not all defenseless, but they are still threatened if they don't have a home!)

That's where Dawn has decided to step in. Dawn is distributed by Procter and Gamble. They have two webpages (www.dawn-dish.com and www.homemadesimple.com), but more importantly, they are running this new campaign. The goal is to raise $500,000! One Buck at a time. All you have to do is purchase a bottle of Dawn Dishwashing Liquid Soap, making sure that it is included in the promotion (certain sizes may be excluded), and then enter the code at the bottom of the back side of the bottle. This takes one dollar from the company's profits and diverts it toward the purpose of helping protect endangered species.

They are calling it the "1 Bottle = $1 TO SAVE WILDLIFE" campaign... details can be found at www.dawnsaveswildlife.com.

One of the most interesting features is that they are doing a breakdown of states and Canadian Provinces to see who's contributing the most to the campaign: Right now California is in the lead, with Ontario Canada in a close second. Texas comes in third (showing us that plenty of Texans do care about the environment and animal rights - issues which effect each and every one of us). And Florida is in fourth. (Here's the direct link to this chart and map.) See if you can help push the envelope and help us generate the half million - $500,000 - as quickly as possible, by entering your code today!
