While Sinking Ship is committed to creating compelling, entertaining and quality content for kids and families across the globe, we're equally determined to ensure that we create impactful and meaningful change in the world. Through these partnerships and many others, we hope to spread the central messages of kindness, equality, conservation and family beyond the shows themselves and look to empower kids everywhere to go out and change the world.
PARTNERS IN CHANGE
The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) is a global non-profit helping animals in more than 40 countries around the world. They rescue, rehabilitate, and release animals, and restore and protect their natural habitats. On behalf of our series Endlings, Sinking Ship partnered with IFAW, along with Game Rangers International and Zambia's Department of National Parks, to develop the Lusaka Elephant Nursery - a new rescue and rehabilitation facility for orphaned elephant calves - which will open in Lusaka National Park, Zambia in 2022. It is our hope that through this new orphanage, we will shape a better future for elephants in Zambia and in turn, shape a better world for the next generation of kids.
Roots & Shoots provides the resources to encourage and motivate young people to take action on issues that matter to them. Today, the tools and support offered through the Jane Goodall Institute program empower youth in all 50 states and over 60 countries to put their ideas into action. Sinking Ship is partnering with the Jane Goodall Institute to further instill the message to kids around the world that they have the power to take action and make a significant difference in their communities and beyond.
Make-A-Wish creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. After seeing first-hand the impact a wish can make, Sinking Ship partnered with Make-A-Wish and TVO to host an Odd Squad open house fundraising event that gave fans an inside look at the magical world of Odd Squad while raising over $30,000 for Make-A-Wish Canada. Through this donation, Make-A-Wish was able to continue their tremendous work and bring eligible children’s wishes to life as the world's leading children's wish granting organization, serving children in every community in Canada, and in more than 50 countries worldwide.
The National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) brings together organizations who are committed to informing and encouraging girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). To date they have connected over 42,500 organizations and served more than 20 million girls. Sinking Ship partnered with the NGCP through the series Dino Dana, creating a series of videos at the beginning of the pandemic connecting the NGCP network of girls with working paleontologists to ask them their most pressing questions.
