Earlier this month something rather wonderful happened. You all became co-sponsors of the lovely deer ‘Bambi’ (I hope you don’t mind). I’ve sponsored Bambi on behalf of everyone who is part of my little blog community, so we can all help make the world a little bit nicer for animals like him.
Bambi is just one of the animals cared for by Edgar’s Mission – a not for profit sanctuary for neglected, abused and discarded farm (and other) animals. By sponsoring Bambi, we’re all helping to provide him with food and veterinary treatment throughout the year. I’ll be receiving quarterly updates on how Bambi is doing, so I’ll be sure to pass on any news when it arrives. How could anyone resist Bambi’s lovely deer face? (… he’s the one on the left).
Bambi was a survivor of the 2009 Victorian bushfires, staggering out of the forest without his mother, and suffering from smoke inhalation and dehydration. Following a lot of tender loving care, he fully recovered and now calls Edgar’s Mission home. As one of Bambi’s sponsors, we’re all welcome to visit him in person for pats and cuddles … I think that’s a rather wonderful excuse for a holiday to Victoria, don’t you think? Road trip, anyone?
Oh, and apologies for my complete slackness with announcing winners of my last giveaway (time just got away from me). I hope the lucky winners are happy with their prizes (I’ll send you all an email soon to grab your postal addresses): Gabrielle (‘do not feed the ducks’ paperclip set), Sofia (Bespoke), Juliet (‘do not feed the ducks’ paperclip set), Rel (original artworks of Audrey Hepburn and Ingrid Bergman), Debby (glass tile magnet set), Sonia (writer’s bracelet). Congratulations!
