For this week's Fun Monday "we are challenged with doing a good deed. " by Nikki.
Well, I've started raising money for Wildlife Warriors, an organization founded by the late Steve Irwin. November 15th is Steve Irwin Day and all supporters are encouraged to wear khaki that day and/or to camp out somewhere, even if it's in your own backyard. We'll be doing both, probably camping out somewhere in the Everglades or Big Cypress Preserve.
My goal for donations was $200, which I succeeded in just a couple days! But I have until November 15th to raise as much money as I can. The money will go towards helping to save wildlife around the world and their habitats.
Steve Irwin's passion for life deeply touched my family and I. I've made it one of my lifelong goals to do whatever I can to help his dream continue. Eventhough I never met Steve, I felt like I knew him. His death came too soon and I, along with so many others throughout the world, miss him terribly.
