What is this?

On the first working Monday of every month (Monday is one of my busiest days) I will donate the daily income of Chocolate Tortoise to a selected charity, and post to this blog detailing the charity chosen. This blog is not intended to tell the world how generous I am. I am less generous than many people. The blog is intended to firstly log who I have donated to, and secondly to hopefully inspire others to do the same, or similar. For more information, see my first post.

September 2014 – Wildlife Aid

The chosen charity for September 2014 is Wildlife Aid

I volunteered at this centre for nearly 3 years. It does great work in rescuing local wildlife which has been harmed through accident or malicious intent. Whilst some people may think that saving foxes, pigeons and squirrels may not be a worthwhile pursuit to support, they also help out more rare animals, and the principle of saving animals from suffering is a noble one, regardless of the animal concerned.
They also do great work in promoting respect for all animals, and educating people of all ages. For this alone, they deserve support.
From their website (http://www.wildlifeaid.org.uk/):

All wild animals that come into our care are treated and rehabilitated completely free of charge. Our aim is to return every animal that is capable of surviving back to its natural environment.
