After a successful first half of the year, Penguinate.com was able to make its first donation to the Global Penguin Society. Penguinate.com donates $1 for every adopted stuffed penguin from its website and the events the business attends.
“It feels good to do something that helps penguins,” says Jenya Engkilterra, who handmakes the plush penguins. “We’re just happy that we can do something for them.”
Penguins are a bellwether species for climate change. As the Antarctic ice melts and seal levels rise, penguins are facing a tougher environment than they may be able to survive.
The Global Penguin Society is an award-winning organization that educates people, protects habitats and observes penguin populations. It is dedicated to the conservation of the world’s 18 penguin species. The organization was the recipient of donations from the Walt Disney Company’s DisneyNature release “Penguins.”
Penguinate.com will continue to donate to the Global Penguin Society for the rest of 2019.
