Endangered Species Condoms Win Gold Addy Award!


Molly Schafer and Jenny Kendler (that's me!) created this now officially award winning artwork for the Center for Biological Diversity's Endangered Species Condoms project. Nifty! The packages were designed by fellow awardee Lori Leiber.  

I am excited to announce that not only has the project taken the Gold Addy for Tucson, but Lori just let us know that it's won the Gold at the District level as well --- automatically taking us to the National level competition. Keep your talons, claws or tentacles crossed for us!

The condoms are a project of the Center for Biological Diversity, and aim to underline the impact human overpopulation has on other species.

More from the Center for Biological Diversity:


Our wildly popular Endangered Species Condoms are getting some additional love. This week we found out the colorfully packaged condoms, part of our campaign highlighting the connection between overpopulation and species extinction, won the American Advertising Federation's gold ADDY Award in Tucson in the "public service" category.  The Center handed out 350,0000 condoms last year and hopes to send more out soon to draw attention to this crucial issue. Through the empowerment of women, education of all people and universal access to birth control, we can curb our population to an ecologically safe level.
But some members of Congress are making that very hard. In fact, the House has just passed a bill to cut government funding for critical programs like women's health clinics -- which for millions of people provide the only available access to reproductive services, family planning and birth control. With this February marking Global Population Speak Out month, it's time to tell our elected representatives they should be expanding those programs, not cutting them -- for the sake of our planet and the public.

Check out the Endangered Species Condoms Project and sign the GPSO pledge. Then learn more about the legislative attack on family-planning services from politico.com and contact your senators asking them to counter it.
