congratulations mim, and thank you everyone for your comments and support of ripple. kj and nancy you are angels. together, everyone who commented, helped to raise one hundred and ninety two dollars. and that's not counting all of you who went to ripple and donated there. a friend of mine asked "shouldn't the people who created this mess pay for it?" and i'm sure the answer is yes, but it's not so easy, apparently the responsibility falls on many. so while they sit pointing fingers at one another, wildlife, birdlife, all life, needs help now. The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies and The International Bird Rescue Research Center, are at work today. The IMMS has this to say: Your donations at work! Since April 20, 2010, IMMS has responded to over 200 animals and has rescued more than 20 sea turtles. With large portions of their habitat in ruin, threatened and endangered species remain at risk. Please donate to help save wildlife.
i would have had this post up sooner but i needed to cut up 50 something tiny squares with all your names on them (minus mine and kjs numerous comments) as soon as i got home from work and cooked dinner and then wait for Chuck to come home to help me draw a name. i'm sorry i don't have 50 something bottles or i would send one to each of you. still trying to think how i can do that...
mim, please send me your address, you'll find my email in my profile.
thank you again everyone, very very much.
