    Airiel Down

An internationally touring rock band based in Raleigh, NC, USA, Airiel Down is a band whose mission is to give back to the worldwide community through responsibility, conscientious effort, and by raising awareness of key global issues. Their animated music video "Gorilla" was created specifically to depict the current plight of the Silverback Gorilla (along with that of the primate species). To help support the Fossey Fund's tremendous efforts in saving and protecting this magnificent animal, Airiel Down donates 20% of every animated "Gorilla" DVD sold to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund.

  Recycled Ideas

Recycled Ideas is a wife and husband team of papermakers who really love gorillas.
We make the paper by hand in a labor-intensive process invented in China thousands of years ago. We've been making paper for 17 years, adding seeds to the pulp so that the paper can be planted to grow. We prefer native plants and garden flowers that do not spread wild and take over places they are not welcome. We love to garden, to grow, and to create — it is the heart and soul of what we do.
Our plantable paper is used in some of the most important events in people's lives — weddings, baby showers, birthdays, and memorials. Proceeds from purchases through our etsy site help us to make charitable contributions every year to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, and we donate 100% of the proceeds of all plantable gorilla sales to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund.

  The Tattoo Learning Center

The Tattoo Learning Center formerly Tattoos by Lisa is located in Altamont, NY. Their association and support of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International began in 2007 with a gorilla adoption.  The company has increased its support over the years and recently auctioned a tattoo school special on EBAY. The total proceeds from the auction were given directly to the Fossey Fund.
