For the month of February, the Going Green Couple would like to promote and raise funds for The Humane Farming Association in support of its campaign against factory farming. The HFA works tirelessly to nurture and protect animals who have been mistreated as a result of the rise of industrialized animal factories. Additionally, the HFA supports legislation that will protect the public and the environment from the misuse of dangerous hormones, antibiotics and other chemicals.
The 250,000 members of this association have come together to investigate animal-cruelty cases, educate youth on the impact of factory farms on animals, people and the environment, and provide refuge and emergency care services for injured and abused farm animals. HFA also runs the world’s largest farm animal refuge and wildlife sanctuary, Sawanna Ranch.
Please consider donating what you can to this wonderful cause. Thanks to HFA, our cows, chickens, deer, owls, beavers, sheep – you name it – are being given a second chance at life and will experience the love and compassion that they rightly deserve!
This month’s featured charity is the orangutan project. This is a great organization who is working tirelessly to save the orangutan from extinction. The organization works in Indonesia and Sumatra saving thousands of orangutans from extinction. The orangutan project offers many ways to help these amazing animals. You can adopt an orphaned orangutan who was saved from certain death. Your adoption provides the orphan with food, shelter, medical care, bedding, forest school training. The adoption also provides resources for future rescues, rehabilitation, and releases. You can also donate to the save the forest campaign, which funds wildlife and orangutan protection units. Theses units physically patrol the rain forest, stopping illegal poachers and loggers from doing their dirty work. Your donation also helps to provide employment for young men who desperately need jobs. The orangutan project also has a plant a tree program, for as little as $10 you can help plant a tree to absorb CO2 and provide a place for orangutans to live.
What The Going Green Couple really wants to highlight is their Palm Oil Resistance Movement! Every hour 300 football fields of rain forest are razed for palm oil plantations. By joining the movement you are joining hundreds of people around the world who are united to stop the destruction of the rain forest and save the orangutan from extinction. Your membership funds patrols to stop illegal logging and promote long-term preservation of the rain forest. Additionally, your membership comes with monthly updates on the movement and useful information on how you yourself can help the movement by buying smart and increasing advocacy. They also provide a great list of palm oil free brands you can purchase. So join the movement today or make a donation or adoption and help save the orangutans.
