First, we must meet Verbena, a critically endangered red-shanked douc langur who was living in the forest with her troop when she was suddenly ripped from her mother's lifeless body and forced into a small birdcage. She was being trafficked across the country. Her life was destined to be spent in a small cage, poked and prodded by her human "caretakers" or dead on a market table.
BUT, actions matter, and the Lao government officials saw her, confiscated her, and brought her to LCTW.
Today, Verbena is sassy and growing at LCTW. Unfortunately, for thousands of others, the ending is not a happy one. They may end up as someone's dinner, used for medicinal purposes, or kept in a tiny cage until the day they die.
LCTW, or Lao Conservation Trust for Wildlife, is based in Laos, and we rescue, rehabilitate, and release wildlife that has been illegally trafficked and traded. Today, only two organizations in the country rescue all species from the illegal trade. And it's a big job!
We are doing this campaign because, like Verbena, our work and lives were suddenly upended.
With no notice, we received information that we had to move our entire site and animals.
To continue our critical work of conserving Laos' wildlife and educating the people about the importance of conserving wildlife this earth, we need your support.
Your voice is how you can support. Every single conversation about LCTW, every share on social media, and every dollar you donate matters.
We NEED YOUR VOICE to speak of LCTW and how even the smallest donations will save LCTW and wildlife all over Laos.
You can support us by donating the price of a coffee ($5) and then ask FIVE of your friends to do the same!
Speak about Verbena and LCTW. Link friends to our campaign and social pages.
Most importantly, don't let the message and our cause end with you!
Simply by donating the amount of one "coffee", speaking of our exciting work to FIVE friends, and having your friends do the same, it only takes 9 cycles for our message and campaign to reach over 1,000,000 people and $1,000,000 which will save LCTW! YAY MATH!
For every $5 dollar donation you make, you will be automatically entered to win one of our "Thank You!" prizes. These range from some sweet LCTW swag to your own Laos adventure of two weeks hands-on caring for the very animals you helped save!
Terms and Conditions: Entries are automatic for each $5 USD donation or 100,000kip, provided the donation is accompanied by name and contact information. A name will be randomly selected at each $10,000 USD raised. After a winner is selected other participants can only win if they donate again for the next $10,000 increment. Prizes listed above are not in order of distribution. A prize will be determined by random selection. Donations over $5 equal multiple chances to win (e.g. donation of $100 is 20 entries). The random draw will occur on social media, Facebook and Instagram. Winners have seven ( 7 ) days to contact LCTW after their name is drawn in order to collect their prize. Current staff and staff’s immediate family are not eligible to win. Minors or children under the age of 18 are not eligible to win. If prize cannot be given, a monetary equivalent will be sent to the winner instead.
