I've tried to raise my sons to have a strong bond with animals and nature and to treat all living things with respect. This is one of the reasons we were so excited to work with Dr. Jane Goodall and decided to donate profits from our new mini cookies to her institute. Late July worked with Dr. Goodall to choose seven animals for our new cookies out of the many wonderful stories of hope in her new book. Through this experience we learned that the efforts of just one person can sometimes be enough to save an entire species. After much deliberation we selected the red wolf, leatherback sea turtle, chimpanzee, Sumatran rhino, giant panda, pygmy rabbit and the black footed ferret - all of which have been brought back from the brink of extinction through the efforts of dedicated individuals like Dr. Goodall.
We have always believed that giving back needs to be a central part of Late July and doing this project with the Jane Goodall Institute has allowed us to support a long time personal hero of mine. We are currently looking for other individuals like Dr. Goodall with charitable organizations to work with for our next new products and would love to hear your suggestions!
For a chance to win a signed copy of Hope For The Animals, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or post a comment on our facebook page describing a person or an organization you think we should consider and why. Please put "Late July should support" in the subject line or comment. One entry will win the book, but all entries will receive Late July coupons (be sure to include your mailing address in the email). Deadline is October 31st.
"These delightful cookies are delicious, and they're making a difference! Each day, with every choice you make, you can make a difference too-even when you're at the local market. These cookies will not only educate parents and children about endangered species, but they'll help the Institute continue its critical work." -Dr. Jane Goodall
