On SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2019 join me for our 8th annual morning Yoga class and Holiday “Meet The Animals” Open House at Peaceful Hands Yoga in Orange, Virginia …
THE WILDLIFE CENTER OF VIRGINIA!
Free All-Levels Yoga Class ~ 9:30 a.m.
Peaceful Hands Yoga Studio, 228 Warren Street, Orange, Virginia
Open House follows ~ 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Not up for morning Yoga? Just come to the Open House!
Your “cost”? 1) Make a cash/check donation to the Wildlife Center of Virginia or, 2) Bring a bag filled with helpful supplies for the Center from this “wish list”:
Paper Towels ** Tissues (no lotion) ** Glad/Hefty Trash Bags (30 gallon & yard sized) ** Ziplock Bags (gallon size) ** Mixed Nuts (unsalted, raw, no peanuts) ** Canned & Dry Dog or Cat Food (any size, any brand) ** Wild Bird Seed ** Silverware/Flatware ** Basic office supplies: 20 lb. white paper, white card stock, pens, staplers, padded mailing envelopes, dry erase markers, spiral-bound notebooks, notepads.
Whoooo will be joining us? Some of the Wildlife Center’s special wild ambassadors, that’s who!
The Wildlife Center of Virginia depends entirely on the generosity of individuals like us to support their life-saving work. They have cared for more than 3,000 wild animals this year … and new patients come in every single day.
Like this bobcat kitten …
This bobcat kitten was found, without her mother, in July. She’ll winter over at the Center until she is old enough and able to live on her own in the wild.
And, here’s Rowan, the red-tailed hawk …
Rowan fell from his nest this spring, and permanent eye and wing damage from the fall make him unable to survive in the wild, so he’s the newest member of the Wildlife Center “ambassador” team.
And, here’s one of the bear cubs that will winter over at the Center until she’s ready to be released …
They all need our help ~ Please be generous!
HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE
11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Enjoy hot apple cider and deeee-licious sweet and savory homemade treats. (Plus, yes! Dr. Beier’s famous homemade cheesecake will be there, too!)
Visit with The Wildlife Center’s Executive Vice President Randy Huwa, VP of Admin. Lacy Kegley, and Outreach Director Amanda Nicholson, who will be there to thank you for your support and to tell you about the wild patients your gifts help.
Take A Pic with a wild critter! Maybe a raptor, maybe a possum, maybe a turtle, maybe an owl. I can’t tell you which Wildlife Center “Wild Ambassadors” will be joining us, but I can tell you that they are looking forward to seeing you!
Bring A Friend. You don’t have to do Yoga to come by. And, please invite a friend — it’s a great way to introduce new folks to our Yoga studio and to the work of the Wildlife Center. I think of Peaceful Hands as a family and if you’re interested in helping the Wildlife Center, please join us … we’d love to see you!
Can’t Attend, But Want To Help? Make an online donation. Visit the Center at wildlifecenter.org and click the “Donate” button in the upper right corner. Click the option “make a general gift.” When you “check out” you’ll have the opportunity to include a note. Let them know that you’re supporting the “Peaceful Hands” project. If you do, you’ll receive a special little thank you surprise from me!
Watch this awesome, quick video from the Wildlife Center to see how your generosity has helped save wild lives …
(Extra credit if you see Randy!)
This is our opportunity to help wildlife in need … and this is MY chance to thank you for being part of the Peaceful Hands family.
I hope you’ll stop by.
Thank you, as always, for your kindness and generosity.
HolidayCookieiciously Yours, Jackie
