Karmen Schmidt – 

  • We are hoping to raise $100,000 throughout the week
  • All money raised is going DIRECTLY to supporting the rhino conservation in South Africa
  • Planning this week of events took 6 months

Maija Shaw – 

  • Globally there are around 30,000 rhinos left, due to poaching.
  • The Black Rhino, the rarest species, is critically endangered.
  • Poachers kill Rhinos in order to cut off their horns, but they can live without their horns.

“I am involved in the Rhino Awareness because I also participate in the club Remember and Give, run by Karmen Schmidt. Three years ago our families and 8 other families took a trip to South Africa. Prior to that, we raised money from bake sales and other fundraisers to renovate a run down child day-care center and to help save the Rhinos. Ever since then I have been making an effort to try and save the Rhinos from extinction.”
