I would like to introduce you to this “Sponsor a Penguin/Apadrina un pingüino” campaign that the Spanish Army is holding at the Base “Gabriel de Castilla” in the Antarctic.
Spanish Army? I know it sounds kind of weird, let me explain briefly. The SA has had a base in the Antarctic for many years now and one of their duties has to do with Environmental management (including monitoring the environmental impact of human activities such as tourism.)
There is a brief introduction in which it is explained the relation between the work that the SA is doing in the Antarctic and the penguins. The aim of sponsoring is to raise awareness and count with people’s support. Just like signing on Change.org but in a more special way.
Also, this campaign has a partnership with “Penguins against Childhood Cancer” along with Association Pablo Ugarte. If the campaign gets up to 5.000 people to sponsor penguins, there will be an actual donation (made by another Company which is this foundation’s sponsor), isn’t that great? 🙂
