Children’s book about rhinos needs your help!
Providing reading material and education for Africa's children is a monumental, ongoing problem. There is also another huge crisis in Africa – the slaughter of our rhino.
Conservation starts with education for both children and adults. The more children and their families read, the more they will understand the need to protect the world and the amazing animals in it – especially the rhino!
For this reason Cape Town based company Chameleon not just for kids Books has set up a Thundafund crowdfunding campaign which aims to raise money to do a print run of their Rescuing Rhino book.
They have partnered with the South African Department of Arts and Culture in an important rhino literacy / education project, but they need your help! The project aims to get the Rescuing Rhino children’s book into as many schools, libraries and homes, as possible with a quantity of books being donated FREE to schools/organisations and children in need. The books could be used worldwide as the nature conservation contents include endangered animals from all over the world and literacy is a problem worldwide. The whole world also needs to know that rhinos need protecting.
Rescuing Rhino is an illustrated story about an orphaned baby rhino, how he was cared for and eventually released back into the wild. The book deals with caring for orphaned wild animals and the plight of the rhino with fact and activity sections focussed around the rhino and other orphaned animals.
You can help by contributing to the campaign and for the first 50 pledges of R100 or more, the Department of Arts and Culture will reward R200 each towards the campaign – that means R10 000 could be rewarded to the campaign in total. Every little bit counts so please pledge today for this worthwhile, nature conservation / eco / literacy / educational project and you will be rewarded but best of all you will also get books to donate to children in need.
