  • #MySpiritualAwakening || David and I parted ways after a few years. He did his best to love me during a time where I was not in a good state and took a lot more than I gave, but due to actions on both our parts we never had a solid foundation of trust and security. I continued to feel a deep sense of sadness within me once I was on my own and for a while it seemed like the tears would never stop.⁣
⁣
In 2011 I was having a particularly emotional night when, as I lay in bed, a memory crossed my mind. During the trip to New York when I met Kanye, I was running around the city with a well known and highly successful photographer. We were on our way to an event one evening when he asked me to cover the cab fare because he didn’t have cash on him. The fare came to $20 which was all I had and which I needed to get back home, but I didn’t want to make a big deal out of such a small amount of money. I said nothing and nervously handed the driver the last of my cash. At the end of the night, around 3 am, I found myself standing in the rain outside of a train station, my lack of loose change making its gates now entirely impenetrable. I didn’t want to ask a stranger for money; I’d had so many people approach me in the past for change and I’d always labelled them as scammers, and here I was about to do the same. I feared how people would respond if I asked them for change, but I had no choice. Asking for help was the only way to get home.⁣

  • Today is #WorldRhinoDay —> Rhinos are under tremendous threat of extinction due to poaching for their horns which are made of keratin, the same material as human finger nails.  Throughout a number of Asian countries there is a belief that keratin has properties essential in the use of medicinal aids for hangovers and other ailments. These claims are unproven. As a result of this perceived value, people will pay top dollar for ground up rhino horn. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
FYI: 2.5 Rhinos are killed everyday ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ Our partner @wildtomorrowfund is dedicated to the protection of threatened Rhinos and the habitats they depend on for survival.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ For each sale of our Rosco the Rhino pendant, We will donate $15 CAD Silver / $50 CAD Gold to @wildtomorrowfund to support Rhino conservation work in southern Africa. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ This includes protecting critical habitat, equipping and training rangers who put their lives on the line to keep wildlife (including rhinos) safe, providing monthly food rations to 2 rhino orphanages, and funding the safe dehorning rhinos to prevent poaching.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • This #WorldRhinoDay we’re reflecting on some of the amazing achievements of our friends and partners @africanparksnetwork Sometimes it may feel like the news on rhino is predominantly negative and so today, let’s celebrate the good and be hopeful for the future and all it holds ❤️ #Repost @africanparksnetwork with @get_repost

The rhino has survived on the planet for millennia but today, fewer than 25,000 remain due to one thing: the illegal demand for their horns. News about the species is typically about its near demise and the unfortunate reporting of increasing numbers of individuals succumbing to poaching. However, today we wanted to share some good news for rhinos, small successes we’ve had for the species with our Malawian and Rwandan government partners. Together we have:

Reintroduced rhinos back to @majetewildlifereserve in Malawi in 2003 and 2007, where the population is thriving and not one individual has been lost to poaching since their return.

In 2015 we assumed management of @liwonde_national_park in Malawi, making African Parks responsible for the country’s entire rhino population.

In 2017 with the Rwanda Development Board (RDB) and the Howard G. Buffet Foundation, we bought 18 Eastern black rhinos back to @akagerapark in Rwanda, ten years after they had been poached out; and

Just a few months ago in June, together with the RDB and EAZA we translocated five rhinos from the Czech Republic to Akagera in Rwanda, creating the most genetically diverse population on the continent.

These are truly hopeful efforts being made, where shared vision, political action, and funding support has helped ensure that this remarkable but severely endangered species has a brighter future. This would not have been possible without you, and today we ask you once again to join with us and help us protect Africa’s rhinos and other wildlife.
