Now this is a wonderful use of two dollars.

Valentine's Day. I'm pretty certain it might be America's least popular holiday that we somehow still perpetuate out of a sense of guilt or shame. It's pretty gross if you let it get there and it gets there quickly. 

This year, Valentine's Day has a wonderfully dark side I've yet to see harnessed by our culture in such a fun way. You can now pay two-dollars to name a cockroach after your ex. Sure it's mean spirited, BUT those two dollars will go to British animal sanctuary, Hemsley Conservation Centre, who says "for those that don’t quite require revenge, there’s another way to make you feel better about getting back at your ex this Valentine’s Day."The details:

  • Please note that the cockroaches name will not appear on the certificate. We don't want to fuel a fire, so this is a keepsake for you or your friend, although should you wish - the certificate does come complete with a message box!
  • Your cockroaches name will however, appear on our roach board at the cockroach enclosure at the HCC.
  • Please note that we only need the first name of your cockroach!

What a silly way to have a little fun on Valentine's Day - specifically if you're single. If you're not, maybe let it go?

Now, we know it's a little over a month away, but we know you like to be organised! For those that don’t quite require revenge, there’s another way to make you feel better about getting back at your ex this Valentine’s Day. The HCC is offering the chance to name a cockroach in honor of your, or your friend's worthless ex-“someone” on this special holiday of love. We are highlighting these creatures through our ‘name a cockroach programme’ (we think adopt is a little too strong, after all - you probably don't want to adopt your ex) to raise money for our projects at the zoo.
