This June, our chums at WWF think it's about time you went a little wild. Now, I'm not talking about dancing on your desk at work or blowing your savings on a VW camper. I mean, you can do if you want, but that's not what I mean.
On June 5th, the WWF are asking you to Wear It Wild, to help raise money and awareness for their brilliant and important conservation work. What do they mean by wild? Well, that's up to you.
You can keep it as simple as wearing a pair of leopard-print socks. Maybe a pair of those cat-ears on a headband. Or you could go completely ape and wear a gorilla costume. The choice is yours.
When you sign up for the event at http://www.wwf.org.uk/wild, you'll find action packs and a ton of great fundraising ideas: a sponsored walk, perhaps, or an animal-themed rugby match. I wonder if anyone's told the Springboks?
However you do it, it's easy to go wild in a sustainable way. Have a nose round your cupboards, hit the charity shops. Get out the glue and card, and get creative. And, needless to say, it's fake fur only, please!
All the fun helps WWF with their work, which is more important than ever. In the last forty years we’ve seen wildlife populations decline by more than half. The number of tigers in the wild, to take an especially worrying example, has reduced by 95 percent in the last hundred years. Thousands of other species are also threatened. WWF need your support to show you care.
So, what are you waiting for? With less than a month to go, the time is right for you, your friends, family and workmates to Wear It Wild! Get involved. It's gonna be grrrrrreat.
