Last week Bee and I met in London at a random house in a residential street. Inside we found a hyena chatting casually to a grizzly bear and a small child with curly hair dressed up as a crab.
“This is my daughter Bee,” I say, introducing ourselves to a man dressed as a bee. He looks briefly confused but takes it in his stride. “Bee is here to be an elephant.”
Let me explain.
We are taking part in some filming for WWF’s new Wear it Wild day on Friday June 5th. The house is full of animals representing different letters of the alphabet and the aim is to create a video to raise awareness of their latest campaign to raise awareness and much needed funds for vulnerable animals around the world.
In fact, here it is! Look out for Bee with a trunk made from some plastic tubing:
Get involved – the important bit
Helping to protect our endangered wildlife populations is easy, so even if you don’t want to strap a bit of old hoover to your face you have no excuse for not getting involved:
- Sign up now and get a free fundraising pack for your group or office
- Text WILD to 70060 to donate £5
Please do it now and help put a stop to the devastation of wildlife populations and habitats.
How we got involved
The WWF has been a charity close to our hearts for several years, since Bee watched a sad TV advert about some turtles and made me sign up to a monthly direct debit. I tried to get a bit more information out of Bee about why she had wanted to get involved in the campaign, but as you can see she wasn’t immediately a natural in front of the camera:
We had a really fun day and were very pleased to be able to play our part in the campaign. Although I delegated the dressing up role to Bee, I did enjoy spending the day posing as a photographer:
Please support the WWF on Wear it Wild day – June 5th!
