Spirit Filled Wings 501(c)(3)
Eating properly is just as important for raptors as it is for people - they require a natural diet of rats, mice, quail, and chicks. Feeding the birds coming into Spirit Filled Wings is expensive! No other way to put it. Fortunately, for the past 15 years, SFW's has received food donations from a national company who grows rats and mice for a living.
Unfortunately, in July, 2013, the donations abruptly stopped while the company revitalized its donation program.
Yikes! This caused me to come up with ways to revitalize SFW's diet - how do I come up with $3,000 per month to cover the grocery bill? The only way to do this is to fundraise. For the first time, ever, I had to ask people for a financial donation when they brought me birds, to help cover the cost of food.
The good people of the metro Detroit area were generous, the web watchers (of the falcon cams) were generous, and people I didn't even know were generous, and so far we are squeaking through. THANK YOU!!!
The donations from the national company will resume in January, 2014, but the need to supplement continues and this will not change. So, financial donations have never been more needed. Any amount is greatly appreciated.
If you would like to make a cash donation, Spirit Filled Wings is now accepting donations through PayPal.
If you would like to make a donation through check or money order, please e-mail me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
***Cash donations are always needed to off set the cost of medications, medical supplies, upkeep of cages, and transportation costs, as well.***
