Okay guys, I have a very specific request here. This is from the creator of the page of Sleepy Burrows, Donna, on Facebook:
Followers will need to convince me to keep posting about the wombats and work we do. Our plea for help went to over 100,000 people. 163 people pledged or donated. Not sustainable. I cannot work 20 hour days saving wombats, helping members of the public with wombat cruelty issues, illegal shooting of wombats, educate children, help people live with wombats instead of shooting them, etc. I can see how the planet is losing species to extinction.
This is a TINY project in terms of wombat costs. I still have to somehow find $40,000 a year to feed and medicate the wombats which come in, that does NOT include any infrastructure, travel costs, etc. This does NOT include the money we raise from the Wombat Coffee Club.
Sometimes we drive up to 8 hours to help a wombat. The people who call us don't even help us with our fuel, even though they want us to fix the situation for them.
No can do at the current situation. SO, if you can help or know somebody who would like to help preserve these creatures and help us with our work, please can you forward our post on. Again, for the love of wombats, we need some help here folks. To the 163 followers who have helped, you know what you mean to us, you are priceless and thank you."
Now, I know I get some folks who come to this page regularly to see my updates concerning Heavy Gear.+Chris Robato +Wouter Wolput +Errick Kimbrough +Roy Fokker
There's a couple of the names that appear quite often in my feed.
I'm asking you, all of you, not just those named here, to please consider sharing this post to your own status feeds, and also asking that others share it out as well.
More importantly, I'm asking you, humbly as I can, to offer a couple dollars to this project. I may not be Australian, just an American, but I do love our wildlife very much, and I want to see things improve for all those concerned who take so much time out of their lives to care for these creatures.
So, while +1s are appreciated, I really am asking for you to consider donating (even a couple dollars) and sharing. Thank you very much. Peace, and God bless.
