Want to make a quick cash donation?
You can now do so here:
We are currently accepting donations of high quality outdoor gear and equipment!
We’ve kept our mission simple for a reason. The quickest way to bring some relief to the rangers is by getting them quality equipment to work in the harsh Mount Kenya environment.
Donations may be shipped to:
Brittany Retherford – The Lala Salama Project
1906 Wood Ave.
Colorado Springs, CO 80907
Michelle Waterhouse – The Lala Salama Project
P.O. Box 381
Lookout Mountain, TN 37350
Some examples include:
- warm layers, including fleece jackets, long underwear, etc.
- gloves and mittens
- warm socks
- warm boots
- sleeping bags, blankets
- books, games
Remember, these men and women work in a harsh environment, so no use sending them low quality stuff as it’ll just wear out. Even though Mount Kenya lies near the equator in a country known for it’s warm climate, the mountain can get quite cold. Yes, it even snows! Unfortunately, standard issue Kenya Wildlife Service equipment is designed for hotter temperatures, which means that rangers have to invest their own money to buy gear to keep them warm.
In Lieu of Cash…
Want to help, but don’t have any gear to donate? No worries! Rangers are in need of good radios to help with on-the-ground anti-poaching, rescue, and firefighting operations.
Just order a set of radios on Amazon – and donate them to The Lala Salama Project!
