UJR is not your typical Internet podcast, since day one the goal around here has been to make an impact and we know it’s hard to do that sitting behind a keyboard all the time. We have a very tangible presence on the front lines in the real world especially when it comes to education and standing up for what we believe in when it comes to animal conservation. The power of UJR lies in its strength in numbers. Like the show, a true Jungle Junkie should be ready to stand for what they believe in especially when it comes to animals. Like any good army, we want to arm our listeners with facts and education and of course they should be rockin’ the ultimate uniform, the Black Hoodie of the Urban Jungles Marching Society. It’s a simple way for like-minded people to visually identify each other at zoological or expo gatherings and also a way of telling the world who you are…A Die-Hard Jungle Junkie!
But wait, it’s not that simple…
This Hoodie is more than just a piece of Swag you know. If you wear this Hoodie, you are taking on the responsibility of explaining to anyone who asks what it means. You are taking a pledge to change something in this world for the better in order to make animal injustice and ignorance disappear. Wearing this hooded sweatshirt means you are now part of the Urban Jungles Marching Society, an organization that should not be taken lightly. Being part of the UJMS means you are willing to do something significant, and you’ll be wearing your uniform in the process to let everyone know. Please don’t attempt to obtain this Hoodie if it is going to sit in a closet somewhere, that’s an injustice.
The mission of the Urban Jungles Marching Society is to represent UJR in a capacity that means to bring awareness, education, or conservation to a situation where animals may be in need. The UJMS believes in peacefully protesting and raising awareness and in no way condones any type of violent or unlawful behavior nor are we responsible for the actions of those wearing an official UJMS hoodie. The UJMS represents a higher consciousness of awareness when it comes to exotic and wild animals and signals to others around you that you are part of a movement that is looking to make a difference in the world. I chose the name of The Urban Jungles Marching Society to reflect the pro-active nature of the average UJR listener. Although we take animal education and conservation seriously, the overall goal is always to have fun and enjoy animals in the process.
Many years ago, Marvel Comics created the Merry Marvel Marching Society which was also the inspiration for the name. especially since we are all superheroes at least part time.
If you want to purchase a Hoodie, you will unfortunately have to wait until we release them at the Chicago NARBC Show in October. They will be available at the show and from our web store on October 14th.
But, do not dispair...I will be selling 2 Hoodies in each size (md-Lg-XL) Starting on midnight Thursday August 16th until supplies run out in order to promote the Appearance of Dominic Monaghan on the show Friday 8/17/12.
Starting at Midnight, visit out store for your chance to score a UJR Hoodie!
