wee wild ones
We can't resist the baby animals! Local nonprofit Appalachian Wild coordinates the needs of wildlife rehabilitation in Western North Carolina providing care for injured and orphaned wildlife, support for the wildlife rehabilitation network and conservation education to the community. "Wands for Wildlife" is a program that recycles old mascara wands to help remove fly eggs and larva from the fur of animals. They work great because the bristles are so close together. Individuals, businesses, schools and groups are collecting wands and funds to help the wee wild ones. Allure Magazine, Refinery 29 and others have caught on and people are sending wands like crazy...but they need more!
Rhea met with the founder of Appalachian Wild this morning to talk about what we can do to help.
Turner & Co. is proud to be a collection center for "Wands for Wildlife" ! Be a "wandraiser" & bring by your old mascara wands (please clean them first w/soap & water) and help save baby animals! For more info go to Appalachian Wild.
