Going Wild for Charity

December 11, 2013 7:44 am

I’m delighted to announce that 5% of Green Embassy profits will now be donated to a charity that I absolutely love – the Gabby Wild Foundation.

The foundation is a US-based not-for-profit organisation set up to protect threatened animal life through conservation programs, eco-fashion events and other campaigns. Check out the website on www.gabbywild.com

Gabby is an inspiration to me as she shares my lifelong interests in animal activism, animal science and veterinary science! This amazing woman set up the Gabby Wild Foundation when she was only in her early twenties after developing a special bond with an ailing baby elephant, Khun Chai, in Thailand.

I first came across her work online and was fascinated by her dedication to saving endangered animals from extinction. It was always my dream when I was a young veterinary student to do something similar, so it felt natural to support her charity through Green Embassy.

Although I’m already involved with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, I wanted to take things a step further by formalising support for a charity through my new eco-fashion label. So whenever you buy Green Embassy garments from now on, you’ll be helping to make this world a safer place for threatened species. Thanks for your support!
