Tampa Bay, FloridaToday Wildlife Survival Sanctuary and Groupon Grassroots (http://grassroots.groupon.com), the philanthropic arm of Groupon, announce the launch of a local campaign to raise funds for food and enrichment toys for the animals that call the sanctuary their home.

 

The “Wildlife Survival Sanctuary Groupon Grassroots campaign will be available on the Tampa Bay area Groupon Grassroots page beginning on July 31st, 2014 and running through Augusts 6th, 2014. Utilizing Groupon Grassroots’ collective action model, Groupon subscribers can pledge support for the Wildlife Survival Sanctuary Groupon Grassroots campaign initiative in increments of $10 or $50 to help provide food and enrichment toys for all the animals that reside at the sanctuary.  

 

The sanctuary depends on public support to provide these animals with food and enrichment toys. Keeping the animals well-fed and mentally stimulated helps ensure they can live long, healthy lives.

 

“We’re excited to leverage the collective action model of Groupon Grassroots to raise support for helping to care for exotic animals in captivity,” said Brigitte Ivory, a volunteer at the sanctuary. “We look forward to creating new awareness for Wildlife Survival Sanctuary as one of the local organizations in the Tampa Bay area to be featured on Groupon Grassroots.”

 

One hundred percent of the Groupon Grassroots campaign proceeds will be used to provide food and enrichment toys for the animals that call the sanctuary home.  

 

Wildlife Survival Sanctuary cares for exotic animals in a sprawling near-natural habitat. Wildlife Survival Sanctuary is operated by an all non-paid volunteer staff; therefore there are no administrative costs, which ensures that all donations go directly towards the cost of care for the animals.
