My friend Andrian Lee runs the backend for the WWF’s donations. For those of you thinking that donations can only be done via credit card, you will be surprised to know that they also accept deductions from your Bancnet ATM, a more viable option since not everybody has a credit card. You can opt to do a monthly recurring donation (you can specify the amount) OR you can do a one time donation.
Donors do get special benefits — passes to film showings sponsored by the WWF, first dibs to events such as cleanup dives, coastal cleanups and the like.
If you think this Pawikan is cute, why not donate a few pesos or so every month? If you don’t donate, you’re probably an evil person with no friends. This Pawikan will also die. By your hands.
