Joe Exotic Raises 5k For Anti-Rhino Poaching In South Africa

Joe Exotic Raises 5k For Anti-Rhino Poaching In South Africa

Hollywood CA (PRBuzz.com) July 2, 2013 — South Africa is ramped with Rhino Poaching of 367 rhinos this year alone and Mozambique recently lost its last 15 rhinos due to their horns being cut off while left to bleed to death.

Joe Exotic along with Bonedigger and Milo the famous trio, wanted to step up and help. So he set out on a mission to sign autographs for $10.00 each in an effort to raise $5,000.00 that would be sent to an organization that specializes in anti-poaching efforts. The June 2013 issue of Hollywood Magazine featured Joe Exotic on the front cover and with this, he got started on his mission. Through the fundraising efforts and help from the United States Zoological Association who kept the funds until he reached his goal, several ink pens and many autographs later, he had reached his goal.

“During the whole process I got many requests from organizations out of the country wanting to receive the funds,” says Joe. “But, not knowing any of them personally, who do you trust giving the money to and be sure it really goes to the rhinos?” he asked. Joe then began searching for the right organization who would help the rhinos. It was through a college that actually travels to Africa each year being involved in real conservation, that the choice was made to have the United States Zoological Association write the $5,000.00 dollar check to the Rare Species Fund who will deliver the money to Stop Rhino Poaching at a www.stoprhinopoaching.com.

“My next project is to raise $5,000.00 and find an organization to help stop the tiger slaughtering in China. But I’m not stopping there,” he said. “After that I’m going on to raise money to help protect Orangutans in Borneo and so on,” he stated.

“I would like to thank the people of the world who trusted me enough to get an autograph picture to help save rhinos, along with the United States Zoological Association, The Rare Species Fund, and Hollywood Weekly Magazine,”Joe finished saying
