Double your Birthday and celebrate by protecting people and wildlife
Sign up as a Facebook Fundraiser for the Living with Wildlife Appeal and you will support vulnerable people and wildlife living in Uganda, as well as other similar work across Africa.
Donations made to your birthday fundraiser before 14 April will be doubled by the UK government.
Send a Cow will be working in partnership with wildlife charity Tusk. Together with your support, we can help over 7,000 families to overcome poverty while also protecting endangered animals.
Poverty is threatening Uganda’s most vulnerable families and as a result, the local wildlife, including the endangered Rothschild’s giraffe.
With no other source of income, families are pressured into laying traps in the nearby National Park.
They hope to catch bushmeat to feed their families and to sell. But the traps they use are indiscriminate. Wildlife such as the endangered Rothschild's Giraffe are getting caught instead.
But it doesn't need to be like this. Working in partnership with conservation charity Tusk, together we can help families grow crops. With your help, they could have nutritious food to eat, all year round and stop trapping vulnerable wildlife.
