During the Christmas time of giving, people often donate more than usual to their favourite charities. In fact: about double the weekly amount of money is spent by those with comfortable incomes in October compared to December on these charities.
However, the charities that will have a larger impact for less money are often left out, this is why The Ugly Animal Preservation Society wants us to switch the types of charities that are more sustainable.
The face of the World Wide Fund For Nature (WWF) is a panda. “Caring for a panda can easily cost over $1 million a year”, said Dave Towne, president of the Giant Panda Conservation Foundation for North America.
For $1 million, you could comfortably save a few species by simply picking a few up and transporting them to another island.
