FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BOSTON (June 05, 2012) - Sssh.com, the erotica and sexuality website designed and produced for women by women, continues their philanthropic donation program and is pleased to announce that the “Dartmoor Zoo” was the organization as voted by the Sssh.com subscribers for the month of May.
This donation, however, comes with a tail.
“With last month’s charity winner being Dartmoor Zoo, from We Bought A Zoo fame, we really wanted to do something a little different,” said Angie Rowntree, founder and CEO of Sssh.com. “We were delighted to learn that Dartmoor gives people the opportunity to adopt an animal for a year. After much deliberation in the office and on our member boards, we are thrilled to announce that Sssh.com has adopted a tiger for a year.”
By adopting one of Dartmoor Zoo’s animals - in this case, one of their wonderful tigers - Sssh.com will be helping to pay for the care, feeding and general well-being of the animal for one year. The costs of running a zoo are enormous and every penny contributed makes a huge difference.
Dartmoor Zoo is the winner of the Eden Channel’s Top Wildlife Attraction of the Year 2011, and subject of the Hollywood movie We Bought A Zoo directed by Cameron Crowe (Jerry Maguire, Almost Famous), starring Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson. Set in 33 acres of beautiful woodland with stunning views of the surrounding countryside, Dartmoor Zoo is a unique, family-owned zoo with a fantastic collection of animals including the widest variety of big cats in the southwest of England.
Formerly known as Dartmoor Wildlife Park, the zoo was purchased by the Mee family and following major refurbishment work, reopened in July 2007 as Dartmoor Zoological Park. For more information, please visit the Dartmoor Zoo website.
Sssh.com takes time and consideration that each organization is chosen based on a commitment to excellence, accomplishment of stated goals and ratio of funds distribution (direct application to the cause vs. administrative expense). The list of potential beneficiaries includes social, medical and environmental charities that get little attention and deserve so much more. Some are large associations known for touching lives in positive ways. Others are small but cutting-edge research foundations determined to cure debilitating diseases. Still others are cultural and community outreach programs devoted to enriching lives
