Oh Tinder. We’ve all been there. Staring at our phones for seemingly hours on end, constantly swiping, swiping, swiping, hoping desperately for ANY match, any sort of bulwark against the constantly suffocating loneliness of our modern society.

Well, at some point during your Tindering, as you are trying to fight the gnawing realization that love is a lie and you will, ultimately, die alone, you may come across Sudan, the last male white north rhino in the world.

Sudan’s cause is near and dear to the heart of Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey, who asked his twitter followers to donate to Sudan’s cause.

Ramsey has long been an advocate for endangered species, and is a supporter of the World Wildlife Fund. Last year he visited Colchester Zoo and played soccer with one of the elephants.

As for you, if you want to spare yourself the agony of going on Tinder, you can click on the link in Ramsey’s tweet to go to directly to the campaign’s website.
