Save Tigers Now


My 10 year old nephew called me the other day to discuss the situation with the Tigers. He carefully explained the facts and how they are critically endangered, and then begged me to help. "Please Aunt Lynn, you have to do something!"

How can I help? As a Christmas present for each niece and nephew I'm donating to Save Tigers Now through the World Wildlife Fund. I'll divide up the free gift - - and combine them with books about Tigers and plush toys. As well as donating much needed funds, I'm helping by educating them and spreading the word. So if you're stuck for gift ideas this Christmas, it's something to consider. And if I can manage it, I might also knit them each a Tiger Stamped Hat. Or do you think the hat is too juvenile for the 8-10 year olds?

I think that's great idea.
I will have to put aside some of my pennies to make a donation

I think the hat is a great idea! How cool that these kids are already thinking of others instead of themselves. Kudos!

after our visit to Edinburgh zoo last year my then 12yo decided to save up her pennies to help- she's nearly there, and while £40 is only a drop in the ocean, I'm proud that she cares so much, and is doing it herself.
A world without tigers? it doesn't bear thinking about!
