Collaboration on Project with Social Conscience

Two Charitable Trusts Collaborate on a Project with a Social Conscience

Two local charitable trusts have teamed up to create a 2017 calendar that raises awareness and funds for Orana Wildlife Park, whilst providing energy efficiency tips to those who purchase it.

Community Energy Action (CEA), a charitable trust committed to keeping people warm, dry and healthy in their homes, has collaborated with Orana Wildlife Park, who recently celebrated their 40th birthday, to produce a 2017 calendar with a social conscience. It seemed a fitting collaboration as both CEA and Orana Wildlife Park are concerned about the environment we live in and the impact living in an unhealthy one has on both humans and animals.

These beautiful calendars are $14.95 each, and proceeds of each calendar will go toward the care and conservation of the animals at Orana. This calendar is not just packed with stunning animal portraits and interesting animal facts, but also seasonally relevant energy efficiency tips as well as a built-in temperature strip. It aims to raise awareness of CEA and provide energy advice about small changes to everyday living that can improve the health of one’s home environment.

CEA also recognised the similarities between human families and Orana’s meerkat mobs, so CEA sponsored Orana’s meerkats family in 2014, and has continued to sponsor their progress since then.

Orana Wildlife Park is New Zealand’s only open-range zoo, and is the only large zoo in the country not owned and operated by local government. This means that fundraising is an essential focus, as 100% of funds must be separately raised for all capital projects, improvements and animal transfers.

Community Energy Action has been helping people to keep warm in Canterbury for 22 years. From the early days of the free, recycled curtain bank and insulation service for both landlords and homeowners, the trust has diversified its’ offering, keeping up with commercial competitors while always working hard to reach those who need help the most. CEA has undertaken valuable quantitative research, demonstrating the positive effect of warm, insulated housing on the health of the household.

Calendars are available for purchase online at www.cea.co.nz/orana, from Orana Wildlife Park’s giftshop, and CEA HQ at 299 Tuam Street, Chirstchurch.

For more information about these services, advice and assistance about how to keep your home healthy, call 0800 GET WARM, email info@cea.co.nz, or visit www.cea.co.nz.

Gordon Campbell: On What Lessons The Greens Should Take From The Demise Of Winston Peters

Wondering about “if only" is one of those political games we all indulge in from time to time.

Yet alarmingly, people keep on having these bad dreams about Donald Trump being the President... More>>
