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.
On November 15, a destructive ice storm hit Virginia. It did an enormous amount of damage to animal housing and habitat at the Wildlife Center of Virginia. Good news is that no animals or staff were injured, but there’s a lot of damage. So, our help is needed more than ever this year as they continue to care for their animals and rebuild from the storm.
I love this year-end video the Center posted last December.
They all need our help ~ Please be generous!
HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE
11 a.m. to 1:00 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, Asst. 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 — from bear cubs to hummingbirds.
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 … you’re definitely family!
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!
