BENEFITING: INTERNATIONAL WOLF CENTER
Let me first start off by saying, I am a very proud member of the International Wolf Center (I'm at "Wolf Tracker" status).
For those of you who don’t know my story, here it is. Last year I did a fund raiser through CrowdRise for the International Wolf Center. It all started with an email I received from the International Wolf Center reaching out to raise funds for a new wolf wagon. (A wolf wagon is what is used to haul food, salvageable road kill and the occasional sick or injured wolf that they are monitoring.) I was in a very dark place at the time of the email and saw it as an opportunity to be “involved” in a positive/feel-good project. In September 2013 I lost someone extremely close to me and very unexpectedly. My boyfriend, Rich (of 22 years). Even though we weren’t technically married, we had often introduced ourselves as husband and wife. As you can imagine, I felt so lost and alone. I kept to myself and just tried to get through the days.
Then I got the email asking to help.
I have always been fascinated by wolves and I took the opportunity to focus my energy on something that would help these beautiful creatures. With the help of friends, family and coworkers, I surpassed the goal I had set. The center asked me if they could interview me for their quarterly magazine. I was so honored and touched that someone wanted to hear my story that I had agreed to do an over the phone interview. See I live in Pennsylvania and they are in Minnesota, kind of far to travel for an interview for a magazine. Lol! Anyway, the article came out in the spring 2015 magazine. It was so beautifully written and it made me so proud that I’m trying again to raise funds for the education of these majestic creatures. They have been portrayed for far too long and vicious, man eating animals. The world needs to know how they really are and how they are beneficial to our environment. Donate to this cause, every little bit will help and it will make you feel good! If you know someone who also shares a passion for wolves, please share my link with them.
Please join me on my quest.
