WELCOME TO MY STOP OF THE CHARITY HOPPING AROUND THE WORLD BLOG HOP!!

Reading A Little Bit Of Everything
Click on the picture above to see all the other blogs taking part in this hop!!
I am very excited to be joining this hop because it gives me the opportunity to highlight a cause that I am very passionate about!!
I'm strongly against any form of animal abuse, as I'm sure most people are, and I believe that the disgusting people who perform these evil acts should be held accountable for them.
One such act has made headline news worldwide, and the fact that it is happening in my backyard sickens me. What am I talking about??
FACT: More than 440 Rhinos were brutally killed last year in South Africa alone!!
FACT: So far this year, one Rhino has been killed every day in South Africa!!
FACT: Rhino horns now have a street value of over $65,000 a kilo - more expensive than gold or even platinum!
Are you as shocked and angered by these statistical facts, as I am! No? Then watch the following video.
(Please note that some images may offend sensitive viewers)
With an increase in the Rhino poaching trend, these magnificent animals will be extinict within 10 years!
So what can we do about this devastation?
The authorities have ignored all protests in South Africa, so a plea for help and support has been issued worldwide. With the International Wildlife Trade Summit coming up in July, YOU can make a difference and help put an end to the slaughter.
Sign this petition, banning the trade off all Rhino products. We are the only chance they have for a future!
Or if you would prefer, you can make a donation to the Endangered Wildlife Trust. Click on the picture below for more details:
Please pass this message on to as many people as possible!!
NOW ON TO THE GIVEAWAY!!
Staying with the topic at hand, I thought it would be a good idea to give away something that would contribute to the E.W.T SAVE THE RHINO fund. So, up for grabs is:
1x Save the Rhinos CD - featuring some of South Africa's best loved artists.
1 x Rhino Force Bracelet
I'm new to using Rafflecopter, so if for some reason it doesn't work, PLEASE forgive me :) and let me know. Thank you, and Good luck to everyone!
