On October 14, 2015 in the US, the National Park Service and American Geoscience Institute will host the fifth annual National Fossil Day, “a celebration organized to promote public awareness and stewardship of fossils, as well as to foster a greater appreciation of their scientific and educational value.” That matches up quite nicely with what we hope Mammoth is Mopey does, so we’re taking this opportunity to directly support the scientific efforts that inspired our book and continue to stoke our imaginations.
From October 14 through October 16, 2015, we are pledging to donate half of all hardcover and ebook sales here at our website to the Jurassic Foundation, a nonprofit organization that has been supporting scientific research on dinosaurs since 1998. As you can see by perusing past grantees, the foundation supports young researchers from around the world. With $7.50 of every hardcover book and $3.50 of every ebook going to the Jurassic Foundation, we can make a significant donation. It’s a great chance to get a jump on the holiday gift season, too!
