Save the Animals Charity Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the Save the Animals Charity Blog Hop!


If you're here from GiGi's then you're in the right place. If not then you will want to start at the beginning HERE

This Blog Hop will work a little differently than our past ones. We give free SVGs all the time, and this time, we are asking YOU to give back to the Animals by donating to our fundraising campaign "Save the Animals". By donating, you can earn exclusive SVGs. Here is a look at the donation levels. And as a BONUS since your donation is going to a charity, its a tax write off!! So keep your receipt!

Here is an example of the donation screen.. When donating, please make sure to include your email address under "personal note" so that we can send you the SVGs that pertain to your donation level (it will not be published on the website)




Each person in this hop picked one animal to represent today. I picked the Giraffe! 


Giraffe populations are showing a decline in the recent years.  In 1999, the total number of giraffes in Africa were estimated by IUCN to exceed 140,000--which 40% of this number were in or around protected lands or private areas.  Today that number is less than 80,000.  This shows the alarming decrease in the population and it's rise to being endangered.


Giraffes can live to be 25 years of age for both males and females, but at these decreasing populations, many are not making it to their full life expectancy.  Although not all subspecies of giraffes are endangered, the ones at most risk are usually hunted for their meat, fur and bones.  Since the increase in poaching, these species are not able to populate fast enough to keep their number up.

If you're interested--Adopt a Giraffe

Now on to my project.. 


I love this NEW Giraffe Tube Holder from SVG Cutting Files.  Isn't he just the cutest?!

Everything Jaded Blossom:

Here is a picture with the tube out of the holder

Awe! Love how you made your giraffe to hold the sign. Poachers are truly despicable but so are the people who think that owning any part of these animals is exotic.
