Helping the Rhinos, One Flop at a Time
Thanks to all our fans who purchased a pair (or more!) of our Rhino Flops, we were proud to make a donation of $250 to the Fundimvelo Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage in December 2015. This money will go toward much needed supplies and support for the baby rhinos, being helped by hardworking volunteers at the orphanage.
To give you an idea of what it takes to care for just one baby rhino every month, take a look at this list of expenses, in South African Rand (it's about 15 Rand per US $):
- Powdered milk: R2,000 - R3,200
- Hay/Lucerne: R700
- Baby Products: R500
- Security: R8,000
- Staff and volunteers: R10,000
- Water: R1,000
Yep, these baby rhinos gobble up a lot of food. Plus, they need quite a bit of tender, loving care, not to mention round the clock security. You can find out more at https://www.facebook.com/rhinoorphanage/?ref=aymt_homepage_panel. Please feel free to donate!
With your help, we hope to buy a lot more milk for the babies next year to make them grow stronger!
Stay tuned for our exciting new designs coming soon.
