|Help to Save Wolves with Wolf Pup Stuffed Toy from Defenders of Wildlife|
If the kids love animals, consider combining a cuddly stuffed toy animal with a donation to organizations that are working to help or save animals.
One organization is Defenders of Wildlife. http://www.defenders.org/
Visit their Adopt an Animal webpage : https://secure.defenders.org/site/SPageServer?pagename=wagc_homepage&s_src=3WEW1300XXXXX&s_subsrc=right_side_support-our-work_121512
For about $25 or more if you want to contribute extra, you symbolically adopt an animal.
Defenders of Wildlife will send the stuffed toy with an adoption certificate with the child's name printed as well as a greeting from the person making the purchase.
Popular animals include a wolf, a penguin, a polar bear, a snow leopard, a sea turtle, a tiger, a fox, a bear, and other assorted animals that may need protection in their habitat.
If you are in a time crunch, or have fewer funds, look for stuffed toy animals at dollar stores, Goodwills, or other second hand or bargain markets. You can make a homemade "official" certificate out of scrap paper and decorte it with cut out or printed lettering, pictures, or sparkle.
You can make a donation to a wild life organization or the local animal shelter.
For kids who love to help animals, combine a soft stuffed toy animal with the gift of helping.
