Spring2Action was successful beyond our wildest dreams! Through 108 donations, we raised $10,341.57. We exceeded our goal of $8535 at the last minute, literally. At 11:57 PM and 11:58 PM, two donors contributed $261 each to take us over the top. Then as an extra bonus, we received a $1000 donation on April 16th.
Thank you to everyone who donated to WRL. With our summer fundraiser in doubt, the extra funds we received from the Spring2Action event will help us to continue our mission. WRL has already purchased over $7500 worth of food, formula, nipples, syringes, ointment, nuts, nectar and bird seed for 25 rehabilitators in the Northern Virginia area. With the first round of squirrels under our belt, we are now handling bird calls: injured adults as well as hatchlings, nestlings and fledglings. For these birds, meal worms are the next big food order!
Thank you again for all that you do to support WRL!
