Happy Holidays from Feathered Hope

Lisadawn and I wanted to take a quick moment to offer our thanks and appreciation for the support our readers have shown in the short time we’ve been up and running.  We’re really excited about the coming year and the many opportunities it will bring for us to collectively help raise awareness and financial support to benefit the fine folks at Raptor Education Group and bird kind in general.

We’d also like to extend a special thank you to Cheryl of Cheryl’s Framing and Gallery in downtown Wausau.  She openly shared her knowledge to help us get off the ground and then graciously offered to inventory prints from our limited edition “Feathered Hope Series”.  If you find yourself downtown be sure to stop in and check out her beautiful store and gallery.

And then there’s our good friend Lori at Wild Birds Unlimited in Rib Mountain.  If you’re fortunate enough to know her you’ll undoubtedly agree that the world could use more “Lori’s”.  Always ready with a smile and the desire to help those in need, especially those of the feathered variety, Lori has consistently shown her support for REGI as well as other local wildlife causes, including Feathered Hope.  If you’ve yet to make her acquaintance, do yourself a favor and stop in her nature store for all of your birding needs.

Last and most certainly not least, we’d like to thank Marge Gibson and her incredible staff at Raptor Education Group, Inc. for the miracles they perform every day on behalf of our wild bird friends. The last time I saw a patient count it was nearing the 550 mark for the YEAR!  I wish I could come up with a better word than “heroic”, but its one that seems to fit.  The amount she and each of her staff give of themselves to provide these birds a fighting chance is truly remarkable.  We sincerely hope that, with your help, we can do our part to provide them the support necessary to allow them to continue to do what they do so well – save birds!

As we head into the holiday weekend, we wish you a wonderful and safe holiday season and look forward to our continued journey together in the new year.

Happy Holidays
Ken & Lisadawn Schram
