$1 from each penguin sold until July 1, 2019 will go to Global Penguin Society
Penguinate.com will donate $1 for every stuffed penguin it sells between now and July 1, 2019 to the Global Penguin Society (GPS) through the Wildlife Conservation Network (WCN).
“What can be funnier
than a penguin that is running to hug you,” said
Jenya Engkilterra, penguin designer at penguinate.com. “Maybe he’s not
running to hug you. He’s just running, but it doesn’t make it any less funny.”
Penguinate.com’s handmade penguins are made of faux fur and
stuffed with holofiber. The eyes are hand embroidered, which gives every
penguin a unique look and means there are no hard pieces for children to
swallow. Our penguins love to cosplay, and costumes can be made to order.
Handmade stuffed penguins can be ordered at penguinate.com. They will also be featured at the penguinate.com booths at Lilac City Comicon 2019 in Spokane, WA, from June 1 – 2, Ogden UnCon 2019 in Ogden, UT, from June 7 – 9, and Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con 2019 in Las Vegas, NV, from June 14 – 15.
“Our penguins are made to bring joy and happiness to the world,” said Shad Engkilterra, Owner at penguinate.com. “We want to honor the birds that inspired so many happy moments for us and those who have adopted our stuffed penguin friends.”
and the Charities
Of the 18 species of
penguins, only the Galapagos Penguin lives north of the equator. The

vulnerable or endangered.
“We are concerned
about penguins and their environment,” said Jenya Engkilterra. “We want to save
penguins in the wild.”
