If you’ve been around Brownie Bites for a minute or two, you’ll know that we support Stonyfield yogurts (see our review) and all of the wonderful programs that they endorse. In 2016, Stonyfield became a sponsor of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums SAFE program (Saving Animals from Extinction) to help educate kids and their families about endangered animals. Stonyfield aimed to bring kids everywhere up close and personal with the animal kingdom to learn about the conservation projects and efforts that are taking place to save these critical species. As a result of this fantastic program, kids learn how they can get involved to help make a difference.
Stonyfield is now taking their efforts one step further by partnering with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. Over the next year, Stonyfield wants to help send kids from Boys & Girls clubs across the country for a day at one of America’s AZA accredited Zoos and Aquariums. To make this happen, they’re asking for help. During the campaign, which runs from September 25th until November 6th, Stonyfield will match every donation made up to $125,000. The donation matching means that your donation is essentially worth double… wow!!
Trips like these give kids a chance to see and learn for themselves by experiencing these animals in person. Being up close and personal with a polar bear is worth more than something you see on screen at home. Stonyfield wants kids to know that an elephant is more than just a Saturday morning cartoon character, and that they can make a difference when it comes to protecting these animals and their ecosystems.
