Why? My kids have been reading Your Big Back Yard and Ranger Rick for years (thank you, Grandma and Grandpa) and, well, I just like helping families (like mine) find more ways to get outside and enjoy nature.
SO, WHAT'S NEW: Their sleep guide (Green Time for Sleep Time) has gone live and covers some interesting facts behind sleep deprivation and shares lots of easy solutions on what parents (like me) can do to make sure their kids get a good night’s sleep.
A lot of folks confuse National Wildlife Federation (NWF) with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and here's the difference: NWF is focused on climate change and protecting habitat within the US and WWF is world-wide.
However, they BOTH do good things!
FOR EXAMPLE: Build-A-Bear Workshop continues its partnership with World Wildlife Fund (WWF) with their latest furry friend, WWF Fennec Fox ($25).
FIND IT HERE: Make-your-own WWF Fennec Fox is currently available at Build-A-Bear Workshop stores and buildabear.com.
THE GIVE BACK: Build-A-Bear Workshop donates one dollar from the sale of each WWF Fennec Fox to the World Wildlife Fund to protect endangered animals and their habitats.
With the holidays just around the corner [ducking under desk to avoid flying back-to-school flyers] I think giving gifts...that then give back...are really awesome!
You can learn more about this awesome program at worldwildlife.org.
