SKII: Albert Felder is the Founder of Angry Elephant Clothing. Tell me a bit about Angry Elephant Clothing. What’s this event about?

Albert: This cause is to help raise awareness about the ongoing plight and struggles of elephants. Our cause is about the poaching thats taking place in other countries and what an elephant goes through in captivity, how their lives are being ripped away for their precious Ivory Tusk and sold on the black market. It’s about the cruelty that’s out here in the world, especially in Africa. This is why our company was created.

SKII:  OK.  I will be right back with you Albert.  I want to speak to one of your other partners.  Tyrone,  tell me something about yourself.

Tyrone: I’m Tyrone Felder and I’ve been his partner since… he told me about the plight of the African loxodonta (skii: since when??) I work very closely with my brother, james and our friend Gabriel to push the awareness of our elephants.  I work  mostly with the sales end of our products  (t-shirts and accesories) and the media ends of things.  We make sure –  we put the meaning of our company “Angry Elephant” out there.  It’s more than Elephants being angry, because they’re not. We are angry about the outcome of each  elephant rights.  They are individual’s too.  They have rights and we are tired of their rights being taken for granted because of the slayings that takes place for their Ivory Tusks.

SKII: Okay, now i’m speaking to Gabriel .  Tell me something about yourself.

Gabriel: My name is Gabriel Eddy and I’m partnered with  “Angry Elephant Clothing”.  We are  promoting this beautiful movement. We are not, just a clothing line.   It’s more of a movement for us.  We come together for a cause.  And that’s to save our elephants. The

way they treat these elephants nowadays,  I will say, in the next ten years,  there may not be any left.

SKII: What’s next for this company Albert?

Albert: What’s next  for “Angry Elephant” as you may know or not but the World Elephant Day is coming in August, August 12th to be exact. We will be there supporting groups and bringing our brand to the masses. Hopefully we can get you guys to come out in your Angry Elephant Clothing to help support the movement as well. We are totally against ALL unjust acts, we also want to take stands against Breast cancer ; Autism;  Abuse;  Poverty, etc.  If you see anyone wearing  our t-shirts,  you should know that it’s  about  a cause and not just for the design of our t-shirts. But yes…   the next causes will be in affect really soon.

SKII: Who inspired you to start your company?

Albert: I was in a situation where my son was in a comma and I was locked away while he was going through his situation.  So , i felt helpless in my own life, I’m a peaceful person, i don’t harm anyone. With no control I felt just like the elephants.  They are also locked-up against their will, not being able to live and move freely.  Always have to be told when to get up.  When to play in the recreation yard.  When to eat and sleep.  I wasn’t there  to help and support my son. I don’t know if you have ever seen how close elephants are with each other and how they care for one or another, but its very emotional. I became that elephant that had no rights to live or die.  They are born and raised to be killed for their tusks.  The

way they treat these elephants nowadays,  I will say, in the next ten years,  there may not be any left.

  2. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
