The Animal of the Month for the the month of April is the Numbat (Myrmecobius fasciatus)! Read below for GIVEAWAY details!

The Numbat is an endangered species of carnivorous marsupial that few know about outside of Australia. Therefore, it becomes that much more important to spread and share awareness. It’s numbers were reduced to just a few hundred in the 1980s, due to habitat clearing, change in fire regime laws, and reduction in population size from being preyed upon by the invasive red fox. It has recently begun a slight recovery, but with a population estimated below 1000 today, it still is in dire need of help.

There is a tremendous organization based in Australia that is working hard to conserve the numbat and its habitat. Their name is Project Numbat. Therefore, to aid them in their fight, giraffeinatree has chosen to sponsor them and their cause to fundraise for the organization. Learn more about the Numbat, Project Numbat, and the Animal of the Month project at http://giraffeinatree.tumblr.com/

WHAT YOU CAN DO

  • Share this post to spread the word of animal most have never even heard of. What a terrible thing for a species to go extinct without ever being recognized.
  • Donate via paypal however much you can. At the end of the day, consider what else you would do with the money you donate; buy a coffee or two? Purchase some music or a video game? Then ask yourself “Can I live without [insert item] in order to donate to a charitable cause?” If you find the answer to that question is yes, then please donate. It helps SO much and I do a little happy dance every time I get an e-mail notification saying someone did so.
  • Don’t do nothing. That’s all I ask.

GIVEAWAY!

For this month I’ve decided to do a little giveaway (nothing huge) to perhaps inspire people a tad more. First off, there’s a Numbat stuffed animal from Perth, Australia at stake here!

Additionally, I will be giving away the Narnia Two theme code.

Rules for entry:

  • Hate when people do this, but you must be following giraffeinatree. You can also like giraffeinatree on Facebook; it would be nice but not at all necessary.
  • Reblog this post.
  • ONE in every FIFTY people will win the Narnia Two theme code, so the more notes this has, the more people that will win.
  • ONE person out of all the reblogs will receive the grand prize, the silly-looking Numbat stuffed animal!

Should it be that you are not interested in the theme code or stuffed animal, and you still want to share and donate, feel free. You are not obligated to receive either!

If you don’t win, don’t worry because there will be more to come next month. Thank you all!

For those who saw the original posting of this, I don’t have an ad on my blog anymore, so money will only be raised through donations. So if you would, donating does so much to help; it is not necessary to donate, however. Those who do donate will be listed on giraffeinatree.com/give-back no matter the size of the donation.

Welcome to Cardboard Box Office – our homemade creations of some of your favorite movie scenes built from some of our favorite domestic junk.

The project began after finding that we had accumulated both a lot of cardboard boxes (due to moving to a new country) and a baby (due to giving birth). With our social lives drastically altered we decided to find a way to make some of those housebound weekends a little more fun.

The costumes, props, and sets in Cardboard Box Office are created entirely out of everyday household items, toys, cardboard, and three individuals slowly losing their sanity. Enjoy!”

A+ parenting.

lol awesome

Do you ever crave to be touched? Even in the most innocent way. I want someone to just hug me for a very long time or someone to lean against/ someone to lean on me. Maybe while sitting or laying next to someone just to have our legs, arms, or feet touching would be nice. I think that when you’re lonely for so long you constantly want to feel someone against you just as a constant reminder that you’re not alone.
