Support Future Leaders! Help Stonyfield to Raise Funds for the Boys & Girls Club of America to Visit Their Local Zoos and Aquariums #FutureLeaders


I am a big believer of children experiencing the world around them. I try to make sure that my own children have at least one monthly experience that is fun and engaging to better understand the world around them. Examples include visiting a zoo or aquarium, attending a robotics class, taking swim lessons, working on a science project, visiting the science museum, and more.  These experiences shape their little worlds.  In today's post, I'll tell you about a campaign that Stonyfield has to help kids from the Boys & Girls Club of America to experience the world around them through a visit to their local zoos or aquariums.  This is a cause that is close to my heart because I think that the experience of visiting a zoo or aquarium is special for children and changes their view of the world. After seeing animal in real life, it is more exciting to read books about animals or to learn about the environment and biology. Both of my children think that learning is fun when animals are involved. Every child should have the opportunity to experience the world in different ways so that they eventually become our future leaders!  Let me share the details of how you can get involved.

Here is the overview:
As part of the campaign, Stonyfield will match every donation given, up to $125,000, with the goal of raising $250,000 to give kids the chance to experience an up close and personal look at the animal kingdom. This donation is the latest milestone in Stonyfield’s support of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ (AZA) SAFE: Saving Animals From Extinction® program, which fosters conservation efforts for 10 endangered species.

Stonyfield became a sponsor of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums SAFE program (Saving Animals from Extinction) to help educate kids and their families about endangered animals. Their goal is to bring kids everywhere up close and personal with the animal kingdom to learn about the conservation projects and efforts that are taking place to save these critical species – to in turn help kids learn how they can make a difference.   They chose the perfect organization to team up with - Boys and Girls Clubs of America!

Stonyfield and the Boys & Girls clubs are teaming up to help takes kids from across the country to their locally accredited Zoos and Aquariums.  Are you wondering how to get involved?  It's easy - Stonyfield will match every donation made up to $125,000. Essentially, doubling the impact of each donation.  Watch this video to learn more:


Here is the quick summary:
  • What: Donate to help send kids from Boys & Girls Clubs of America to local zoos with Stonyfield matching your donation
  • When: September 25 to November 6, 2017
  • Where and How: Visit the Stonyfield Organize website here to donate
In addition to this particular campaign, let me tell you about the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. When asked, 84% of Club members believe that they can make a difference in their community. And it’s not just talk. It’s been found that almost twice as many Club members in eighth, 10th and 12th grades volunteer at least monthly in comparison to their peers nationally. It’s no wonder that every dollar invested in Boys & Girls Clubs returns $9.60 in current and future earnings and cost savings to their community. Rest assured, your money will go far in their hands.

Finally, I have to share that we love Stonyfield Organic Yogurt.  My personal favorite is the chocolate flavored yogurt. It's called Chocolate Underground. It was my pregnancy craving for both of my pregnancies! I'm still obsessed with it.  My children love YoBaby!  (Perhaps I influenced them by eating so much yogurt during pregnancy?!) The Peach/Pear pack is their favorite. They are all amazing though.
