Read up on what our jet-setting Goodness Ambassador Rachel Grant has been up to!

Rachel Grant – Philippine-born beauty queen, Bond Girl, Human Nature Global Ambassador, and our Furry Kind collaborator – shares her global social enterprise adventures. 

As former Bond girl, I was thrilled when invited to emcee the James Bond-themed Unconditional Love Dinner & Dance benefit for Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation held at a secret oceanfront hideaway in the Hamptons USA. It was a dazzling affair in honor of animal philanthropist Georgina Bloomberg and was also attended by her billionaire father former Mayor Bloomberg of New York. Southampton Animal Shelter is a top no-kill shelter where I’ve volunteered and successfully cleaned up homeless dogs using Furry Kind. Unconditional Love event guests were each introduced to Furry Kind and took home a sample in their “doggy bag”.

I was a judge at Yappy Hour cocktail and beach-themed dog costume party at Southampton Historical Museum to benefit Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation. Dog owners were invited to enjoy "barkatinis and yappatizers" and to strut their mutt on the catwalk, with shelter dogs available for adoption. Mayor Mark Epley and I selected the best-dressed dogs. First prize went to a delightfully dressed blind and deaf duo with runners up receiving a bottle of Furry Kind.

Human Nature’s Bug Shield is without a doubt my best travel buddy! My skin was well protected and bite-free on a recent trip to Nicaragua, Central America. I stayed in a beautiful solar-powered tree-house at Morgan’s Rock surrounded by 4,000 acres of protected forest. One morning I rappelled down a 150-foot waterfall wall and zip-lined through 2.5 kilometres of jungle!

Through tree planting, environmental awareness and education, Morgan's Rock has helped prevent poaching, illegal logging and deforestation. Land is also set aside for low-impact agriculture, providing organic produce and educational brunch activities. My farm visit included milking cows, picking fresh eggs and kneading traditional limestone corn tortillas. Reminiscent of "farm to table" good times spent at GK’s Enchanted Farm in Bulacan, it was most encouraging to experience another fine example of sustainable organic living in a different part of our world.
