Soapland donates $10,000 to the Hummingbird Society!

Now our Top Corporate Sponsor

Sedona, Arizona, May 29, 2019

Soapland Gmbh & Co. OHG, a leading German supplier of cosmetics accessories, has donated US$10,000 to The Hummingbird Society.

The primary mission of The Hummingbird Society is the protection of hummingbirds at risk of extinction, with emphasis on the species at greatest risk; the second mission of the Society is to teach about hummingbirds.

According to Mr. P. Füllenbach, CEO of Soapland GmbH & Co. OHG, "Since the hummingbird has been the iconic symbol for our "manòu" brand of cosmetic bags for over a decade, we have become quite attached to this fantastic creature. Thus, we are very happy to have finally found this opportunity to support The Hummingbird Society in their great efforts. We are especially proud to enable conservation efforts of endangered species with our funding and are looking forward to a lasting cooperation."

"The Hummingbird Society is excited about this generous donation from Soapland," said Dr. H. Ross Hawkins, founder and executive director of the Society. "This year the Hummingbird Society is creating an expanded effort to protect the Chilean Woodstar (Eulidia yarrellii). This hummingbird species is found only in Chile, and its population has plunged 87% in just twelve years; only an estimated 350-500 birds remain. Thanks to a new partnership with the American Bird Conservancy, the outlook for this effort has brightened significantly.

"A substantial part of the donation from Soapland will go directly to conservation and to expanded fundraising efforts for conservation."

The Hummingbird Society, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in 1996. It is funded primarily by memberships, donations, and sponsorships, as well as by its Sedona Hummingbird Festival and its annual "Hummingbirds as Art" calendar. It is headquartered in Sedona, Arizona, USA.
