Do good with your OddB purchase
One of my loftiest goals with OddBurton, something I've been dreaming about for decades, is to build a company that is solvent enough to donate both creative resources and capital to causes that matter to me.
My greatest passion in life is the great outdoors and the life that it supports. My wish is to help raise awareness for various causes through OddBurton and actualize a promise I made to myself nearly twenty years ago.
WHO OR WHAT WILL ODDBURTON BE SUPPORTING?
Not homo sapiens. There are more than enough people and companies out there who throw their money at organizations and causes aimed at helping humans survive until the apocalypse we are causing.
And while there are plenty of organizations struggling to raise awareness among a species of animal who is so pathetically selfish and self-centered they generally can't see past their iPhones, there is a plethora of life on this planet on the brink of extinction with absolutely no voice in their own survival. I want to help change this sad fact.
Many years ago, I wrote that I believed that elephants would be extinct in the wild within my lifetime ... Perhaps within ten years. Recently, that personal prophecy has been verified. Experts have confirmed that within ten years, despite all efforts to stop the illegal trade in ivory, elephants will no longer exist outside of zoos. This fact is a crushing indictment against humanity. And news, that cuts me to my very core. Therefore …
ODDBURTON WILL BE SUPPORTING WILD ANIMALS, HABITAT, AND THE PRESERVATION OF OUR STUNNING NATURAL PLACES.
A fixed dollar amount from the sale of selected items sold through OddBurton will be donated to an organization of our choosing. We'll keep you updated on the funds raised and announce who will receive the donation.
For Example: If you have an issue with the fact that your purchases may be helping preserve habitat for ocelots, don't buy anything from OddBurton. I'll refrain from judging your lovely character and you can rest easy in the knowledge that your hard-earned money is not benefitting an endangered animal.
THE HARD REALITY
The more I sell, the more cash I will be able to donate to worthwhile wildlife protection and environmental organizations. I have lofty goals for the kind of support I want to provide, but I'll be happy if I'm only able to donate $6.00.
WHERE YOU COME IN
The only help I need is for people who honor me by purchasing OddBurton goods to spread the word if they like the products I create.
Contrary to what you may be thinking, people aren't inherently vile. But our attitudes toward other species, generally, are. And that's where this journey begins.
Now, go and buy something so I can save an elephant.
