wild animal kingdom: charitable starfish and waffles

Back in January, we openly admitted that one of our main goals here at starfish and waffles was the establishment of a media empire and, with it, complete and unfettered total world domination. Well, now that we've achieved this, it's time to give back - because as newly crowned media moguls, it goes hand-in-hand (paw-in-paw?) that me and the editor should also become philanthropists! Come on, it just makes sense, people.

The executive chairman of the starfish and waffles foundation presides over our inaugural donation to the World Wildlife Fund. We sincerely thank you for your continued support.

On this twenty-fourth day of July, I'm proud to announce that the first steps toward our vision of truly shameless philanthropy has been made a reality ... and, quite frankly, we could not have done it without you, the loyal readers of felix's daily starfish and waffles and dingobear photography!

Because of your regular visits and click support of our Google advertisements, today we happily made a $40 donation from our revenues to the World Wildlife Fund on behalf of the starfish and waffles foundation. Thank you for making the animal kingdom - the wild animal kingdom - a better place!

(Cue National Geographic theme music here).

End communication.


  1. Maple Bear sure does have a nice computer!

  2. Fantastic! Congrats to you!

  3. Not only do I hear the beautiful sound of NG theme music, but I also hear wildlife of the world thanking you and the editor right now!

    On another note, I have a question for the editor regarding his ancestry. Is he a full-blood domesticated house bear, or does he have some authentic wild bear street cred? I mean, I'd hate to think of the O.G. wild recipients of his donation mocking him as a civilization sell-out...

    (off to do some google ad clicking :))

  4. m ... well, we need a nice computer or else you wouldn't take us seriously as media moguls!

    Rebecca ... it is! Hopefully, this won't be last cheque we write to the WWF ...

    Katie ... thanks!

    -c ... what can I say, the editor is very committed to his fellow bears and rightfully so. Also, he wants me to assure you that he is a wild brown bear through and through - he comes straight from the boreal forest and steals his honey from bees just like the next bear. I believe the fact that he does not regularly maul people and eat their faces is merely a career choice. :-) And thank your for your continued click support!
