International Animal Rescue(IAR) is an organization, founded in 1989, whose mission is to build awareness and implement effective systems so that natural habitats and their animals are protected. They have been a partner with Wildlife SOS, an organization we recently donated to, for over 20 years! IAR runs multiple projects around the world to help critically endangered or abused species.
Altrucoin hosted a fundraising event for IAR with the goal of raising 10K for their “Rebuild the Refuge” project. We matched the donations up to 5K in order to help reach our goal, which meant that every donation was doubled until we reached our goal!
The fundraiser event took place on Monday, Sept. 20th from 7:30 AM CST to 2:00 PM CST on our Twitch platform: twitch.tv/altruismprotocol . During the fundraiser, we had AMAs with the founding memebers of the Altrucoin Protocol team, and a Q&A with a member of IAR, Finn Brownbill.
With the fundraiser and the charity funds we were able to successfully complete the donation of $10K to help IAR and their mission.
BankerDoge and Altrucoin specifically helped raise money for their “Rebuild the Refuge” project in Nosara, Costa Rica. Every year hundreds of animals are either killed or severely injured due to faulty infrastructure, and unfortunately, those numbers continue to rise. In order to combat these incidents, IAR has partnered with Refuge for Wildlife to help build a sanctuary/hospital for these injured animals and also fund efforts to repair local infrastructure as a preventative measure.
