In memory of Steve Irwin, The Crocodile Hunter . . .

Visit these sites and help continue his work for free.

Go to www.theanimalrescuesite.com and www.therainforestsite.com . There, with the click of a button, you can save part of the rainforest and donate food to animals living in animal rescues. It's free because advertising pays for it.

It's something you can do once a day, every day. They also have sites to help fight hunger and breast cancer, as well as ones to improve child health and literacy.

With so many people saddened by his death, I thought this would be a cool, easy way to keep his memory alive.

God bless,

coemgen

Discovery Channel/Animal Planet are actually setting up a specific fund in his name that will distribute money to various conservation projects around the world.

I want to donate some of the $$ I anticipate getting for my upcoming wedding. Steve is one of the reasons I decided I could possibly make a career out of working with animals....

That's awesome. My sister just had a wedding and they gave people a CD of all the songs in the wedding, and in the CD's booklet it explained that by just attending the wedding, they were going to donate $1 for each person to the 1,000 Wells project for Africa. Maybe you could do something like that?

Congratulations on getting married!


Everyone else (and LivLuv), thanks for visiting these sites. Check out the others associated with those sites, as well as www.povertyfighters.com and www.thebiblesite.org. Two more great sites with the same great idea.

God bless,

coemgen

you could even arrange a donation registry instead of gifts. world vision do them, i'm sure conservation groups do too.

Here is the link to Steve and Terri's organisation "Wildlife Warriors" if anyone is interested in making a donation :

...

The site was set up to help wildlife both in Australia and overseas.

I'd like to remind everyone that it's against site policy for members to post links to sites that are soliciting for donations, regardless of the cause. Although Interference may on occasion feature an invitation to all members to donate towards some particularly pressing need (e.g. the tsunami victims link that was on the front page for awhile), it isn't OK for individual members to randomly post donation links of their own choosing.

coemgen's link doesn't involve money, I understand that, so I can't think of any reason why it should be a problem. However, please don't post links to appeals that do in this thread. Thanks.

His death is such a great loss. I think, websites or not, that each of us can do something to continue what he began. I still don't want to believe he's gone.
