Kristin Bauer van Straten's "Out For Africa"

We're very proud, and excited, to join forces with actress, and animal activist, Kristin Bauer van Straten, and many of the True Blood fan sites, to help raise money for an awesome, and much needed, documentary by Kristin, aka Pamela Swynford de Beaufort, of the hit HBO series True Blood.

The documentary follows Kristin, her husband Abri, Abri's mother Cicely, and a crew, in efforts to bring awareness, and preserve the declining population of the African Elephants and Rhinoceros due to devastating and illegal poaching. Together, we WILL make a difference. 

Kristin's birthday is November 26th, and what a wonderful gift, and special way to wish her a happy birthday... a donation to help her bring to life, her love, her passion, her documentary... "Out For Africa", and help save the Elephants, and Rhinoceros of Africa! In our efforts to raise awareness and funds for Kristin's project, we're selling our adorable plush wildlife animals for $5.00 each, with 100% of the proceeds going directly to Kristin toward "Out For Africa"!

Join Hands!

We are very proud, and quite excited to announce that we have joined forces with the awesome team at Positive Women! Our newest project donates 100% of the proceeds directly to Positive Women’s efforts in Africa, from the sale of our adorable Vampire Ducks - in the style of The Vampire Diaries! Meet Klaus, Damon, Stefan, and Caroline... Our favorite vamps!

Positive Women is an organization helping to make a difference in the lives of impoverished women and children in Swaziland, Africa.

“Positive Women is a charity set up to help empower women and children in Africa, starting with Swaziland, which has the highest HIV/AIDS infection rate in the world, and the lowest life expectancy. Their work focuses on supporting communities to change their own lives and circumstances, to alleviate poverty, and make significant change. To achieve this, they must have their basic needs met, choices in their lives, and an understanding of their rights.”

We were introduced to Positive Women by the amazingly talented, and incredibly handsome humanitarian and actor, Joseph Morgan… aka (Ni)Klaus of the CW’s hit show “The Vampire Diaries”... which btw, happens to be one of our very favorite television shows at ‘Inspired by Ian’... and now of the CW's "The Originals"! He has starred in several, what he refers to as, "Sword and Sandal" movies, such as Ben Hur, Alexander, Immortals, et al, as well as many other movies, including his newest, Warhouse, and Open Grave. We look forward to his return as our favorite frenemy, Klaus, on the premiere of "The Originals" as well as on season 5 of The Vampire Diaries!

Joseph’s affiliation with Positive Women has garnered supporters from all around the world! He has raised thousands of dollars for them through his birthday projects! He is a kind soul, and in his honor we've launched the VampDuck project to do our part to Make a Difference for the (I)ndividuals in our world! Join us!
