The Body Shop Foundation Supports the Cats

 

 

Body Shop Foundation

 

Big Cat Rescue will now be able to greatly enhance the security of our cats thanks to the generous support of The Body Shop Foundation of the United Kingdom. We are delighted to be the recipients of a grant for $10,000 dollars (ÂŁ6290.24) to be used to install automatic backup generators to power our food storage freezers and well pumps for power outages and emergencies. Now, regardless of the conditions, we will be able to guarantee food and water for the cats! This is not only a critical issue for our residents; it will also bring peace of mind to our dedicated staff and volunteers, knowing that we can provide the necessities for the animals in our care even when the winds blow.

 

The Body Shop Foundation is the philanthropic arm of The Body Shop International. This far sighted Foundation supports innovative projects across the world to promote social and environmental change with a focus on Animal Welfare, Human Rights and Environmental Protection. (http://thebodyshopfoundation.org)

 

Their aim is to:

  • support organizations at the forefront of social & environmental change
  • support groups with little hope of conventional funding
  • support projects working to increase public awareness

 

We were nominated to the Foundation by Stephanie Upton, store manager of our local Body Shop at Citrus Park Town Center Mall (www.thebodyshop-usa.com). The majority of applications come from projects nominated by staff, so without Stephanie’s enthusiasm for our cause this grant would not have been possible. The Body Shop believes “there is only one way to beautiful, nature’s way.” For years they always “strive to protect this beautiful planet and the people who depend on it”; not because it’s fashionable but because, to their values “it’s the only way”.

 

We are proud to be partnered with such a responsible, value driven organization and are enormously grateful for the receipt of this award. Our sincere thank you on behalf of the cats!

The Body Shop Foundation also sponsored solar panels in 2012.
