charming little kitchen. source unknown.
Many apologies for the silence over here at Bees & Worms. There have been a lot of things recently plopped into my lap that are not leaving much time for leisurely activities.
I hope to find a balance soon!
Or - a practice in discipline and moderation.
Normally I don’t do this, but I know a lot of my followers love animals and a lot of my followers also have big hearts.
Full Moon Farm is a rescue for wolfdogs and captive-bred wolves located in Black Mountain, North Carolina. Nancy LaPorta, the owner of the nonprofit organization, has dedicated her life to creating a sanctuary for these beautiful, abused and neglected creatures. I did some volunteer work with them during my earlier years of college (when I had less responsibilities and more time) and have seen cases anywhere from family pets gone wrong to wolfdogs who were physically abused and raped (yes, you read that right). Nancy takes in whoever she has the space for, and their new home provides them with plenty of room to roam in their natural setting (the woods!), premium quality food, fresh water daily, the best veterinary care, and as much love as they will allow. As Nancy has stated, she “lives, breathes, eats, sleeps, walks, and talks wolfdogs.”
Nancy turns 56 years old today and has decided to accept donations for the Farm in place of presents this year. She is trying to reach a goal of $1,500 and is currently at a little over $350. If you have even just a dollar to give, we can make this the best birthday she’s ever had! She is getting older, and although she is in great shape from climbing up those hills every morning and afternoon (there are no “days off” when you live on a wolf sanctuary), there are many fuzzy lives that depends on her! If every one of my followers donated $1, she would reach her goal. Feel free to check out the Full Moon Farm website to see what they’re all about (click on the link above), reblog, or donate if you would like to help out directly.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this! Here is a link if you would like to donate: Nancy LaPorta Brown’s Birthday Wish
Just an FYI, since it is nonprofit, it is all volunteer-based and all of the money goes straight to the Farm to take care of the woofies.
