Matching Donation Opportunity Extended!
One of the things that I love about our forum and website is that I'm always learning new things. One of the things I learned today is that Mondays are very busy at Hancock House, so not everyone who tried to call in a donation using our 800 number was able to get through. Another thing I learned is that I need to be a bit more organized about coordinating schedules when working with people on both sides of the North American continent.
I've been in touch with the person who is offering to match up to $1000 in donations, and she is willing to extend the offer through tomorrow night (Tuesday, August 9th). That will provide an additional day for people to call in their donations to 1-800-938-1114 (toll free in Canada and the United States, but for donations only - the staff is not involved with the web site or cameras) - and will provide a full day to donate to our friends who follow the nests on facebook. While Tuesday should not be as busy at Hancock House, there are only two phone lines and a small staff, so please be patient when calling the 800 line.
You can also use any of our other Five Easy Ways to Donate to Hancock Wildlife Foundation - both CanadaHelps and PayPal accept credit cards, and you don't need to set up an account to donate.
It is worth mentioning that we will still need some additional major donations even if our two-day drive is a rousing success. It will cost $12,000 to buy and install the pan-tilt-zoom cam we need for Sidney, and possibly another $6000 just to get the rest of the cams cleaned and serviced for the upcoming season. If you know a person or a business who might sponsor a cam, please get in touch with Karen Bills (karen at hancockwildlife dot org).
All our eagle families - and their friends - thank you!
