SAVE THE DATE: November 29th
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
Are you up for our #GivingTuesday Challenge???
On November 29th, 2016 the Wings of Love Bird Haven will be Joining THOUSANDS of other nonprofits around the Nation for Giving Tuesday. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
In our case, we will be working to raise funds for the cause of bird rescue. Rescue is giving birds a home to call their own no matter what the circumstance is. Up until now we have only done rescue, but with your help and the help of others we are raising funds to build a larger facility. This new facility will include a life-time sanctuary for those birds that are sick, handicapped or too aggressive to go into a home environment. All birds deserve a second chance!
I come to you today with a challenge. Many times people have told me "I sure wish I could help but I live too far away" or "I wish I could help but I don't have enough money to live on much less help the Haven". I get it... really I do. BUT NOW there is a way you can help!
Here's how you too can make a huge difference in the lives of these feathered beauties. Everyone has friends, family neighbors, co-workers. Just ask them to help! Begin today so that you have plenty of time to collect.
We have over 2500 people on our Facebook page and over 3000 people in our email list. Let's imagine for a second just how cool it would be if all these people each collected and donated $25.00 each to help the birds at the Haven. 2500 + 3000=5500 people x $25.00= $137,000.00. Seriously??? How hard would it be for each person to collect $25.00 in over a month's time? Do you really want to help???
How many of you out there would be willing to accept this challenge? If you will, we would love to hear from you. This would help us know just how many people are offering to help in this endeavor.
do you want to go above and beyond the $25 challenge? We have a bigger incentive for you! For those of you willing to collect $100.00 or more for the Haven between today and November 29th and pay it to us on #GivingTuesday we will send you a free Haven T-shirt! Yes. That's right. All you have to do is share with friends, neighbors, family and co-workers about the good work we are doing here at Wings of Love Bird Haven. Tell them how many more birds we could help if we have more property and collect funds from them to help us with this goal. That's it. Simple- right?!
OK- so get started TODAY.
First- send me a FB message telling me you are accepting one of the two challenges.
1. collect $25.00 from friends and family between now and Nov. 29th.
2. collect $100.00 or more from friends and family between now and November 29th.
Second- start collecting and then send all that you have collected to us between 6:00 am and 12:00 pm on Tuesday November 29th.
That's it! The winners will be WHO???
The birds, of course!
September 2016 Wings of Love Bird Haven, Inc. was granted the certificate from the ASA association.
We have been granted the 2016 TOP-RATED STATUS ON WWW.GREATNONPROFITS.COM
Wings of Love Bird Haven, Inc. is here to help the birds. We take in birds (conure size and larger) that can no longer stay in their current home and after rehabilitation physically and emotionally we then look for the perfect new home for this bird. It is important to us that these new homes make a very dedicated LONG-TERM commitment to these birds. If you feel that you are ready to make this LONG TERM COMMITMENT then please take a look at the birds we have available for adoption.
The Haven has been running at full capacity for our space for a very long time. For the past 13.5 years we have been operating off of "borrowed" land that belongs to our founder. We need to purchase land of our own. Only with your donations and support we can accomplish this goal. Please consider making a very generous donation to the Haven NOW! As always each donation is tax deductible. Please give NOW!
We were recently invited to visit Good Morning Texas. It was a lot of fun.
We are so excited that you are interested in adopting a bird from the Haven. We have several beautiful birds here that are just waiting for a new home.
Please go HERE to fill out the PARROT INTEREST SURVEY- It is number 4 Once you have filled out the survey the board will review it. If you are eligible to adopt a bird from the Haven one of our board members will get back in touch with you to begin the next step in the process.
Ways that YOU can help the Haven with or without spending a dime extra:
Want to Volunteer???
Please consider coming out to one of our workdays as this is a great way to help in many different ways to take care of the birds in our care. Not only will you get the chance to learn a lot about parrot care including diet,and health,, but you will get to help us with other things such as toy-making, remodeling and other much needed jobs that have to be done. Maybe it isn't as much fun to do these "not so fun" jobs but... just know that your willingness to participate in these jobs is helping the parrots even more so than the hands-on opportunities. Please go to the Haven calendar and mark these dates on your personal calendar now so you can set aside these dates to help the birds at the Haven.
