Tea Party for Tigers!

Tiger_factsheet_thumbCare for the Wild funds a number of tiger conservation projects in Asia as well as supporting the lifelong care of Jasper, an Indochinese tiger taken from his mother by poachers when he was just a few months old. To celebrate these amazing animals, increase awareness of their plight, and raise funds for our tiger work, we’ve launched our ‘Tea Party for Tigers’ in time for International Tiger Day! Also known as Global Tiger Day, this is marked every year on 29th July to help raise awareness of tiger conservation around the world.

To celebrate all tigers on this special day, our very own Rajah the tiger from our adoption herd is asking you to join us in holding your own fundraising tea party – just like The Tiger Who Came for Tea! Find out how to make your party a roaring success with Rajah’s tips below.

Rajah’s Tiger Tea Party Tips

herdteapartyHello and thank you for having a tea party to help raise funds for me and my friends. Here at the Care for the Wild Adoption Herd, we all work hard to represent our species around the world. I take my job very seriously because we know you humans love tigers, but we still need protecting. By holding a ‘Tea Party for Tigers’, you can help me with this important work, say you’ve helped to mark International Tiger Day, and have a grrreeaaattt time too! Here’s me and some of my friends from our herd having our very own tea party.

Check out some of my tips for a terrific tiger tea party.


Tiger Tip 1: Decide how much you would like to raise for tigers

You can ask your guests to make a set contribution for attending your party, or ask them to contribute whatever they can. You could choose to sell cakes, suggest a donation to bring along your own tiger (cuddly toy!), have a sponsored tiger costume competition, or offer face-painting in exchange for a donation.

Tiger Tip 2: Set a date and time

‘Tea Party for Tigers’ can be held any time between 29th July and 29th August. A morning party could suit Mums, or get your children and friends together one afternoon and make the most of the sunshine. Alternatively if you have some tiger pyjamas or a onesie, why not get your friends and family together for a pyjama tea party?

Tiger Tip 3: Choose where to hold your party

If possible, set up the staff canteen for some tiger time during work; make the most of the warm weather and make your garden into a mini jungle; or set up a den at home!

Tiger Tip 4: Tell everyone about your party

Send out invites to all your friends, family and colleagues. Posters can be put up at home, work or your local club so everyone knows the tigers are coming to tea!

Tiger Tip 5: Have some roaring fun

Remember, the main thing is to have some fun and let people show their love for tigers.
