NYC Times Square Action for #CeciltheLion

Come to Times Square to take a photo with the #CecilNYC hashtag and the growing number of donated toy animals to raise awareness for #CecilTheLion.


All toys will be donated to - a 501c3 non-profit based in NYC which gives out toys to kids in low-income communities and schools -- along with content and programming to teach the kids about animal conservation

The nation has been shocked by the brutal killing of Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe. A number of New Yorkers have come together to raise awareness of the issue by setting up a station in Times Square. They are collecting toy animals and engaging with the public in the middle of Times Square. People from all over the world are taking photos in front of the station and spreading the word on social media.
