An enormous thank you to everyone who donated to the WIRES Australian Wildlife Rescue Organisation through Cooper’s fundraiser! Together, we raised $300, which will help to rescue, rehabilitate and preserve the wildlife affected by the Australian fires. It’s so wonderful to see people rally to help creatures in need.
Cooper isn’t quite finished raising donations for WIRES.
Cooper’s Redbubble store is selling this Koala and Budgie (in blue or green) design on tshirts, stickers, mugs, etc. All proceeds we earn from the Koala Budgie sales will go to WIRES. https://www.redbubble.com/people/coodew/shop…
This month’s book is Mars in the Outback by Andrew, Marley and Flynn Neilan.
Mars is lonely, so his humans take him on a trip to the Outback. The little blue budgie sees lots of native birds on his trip. When the family arrives in Palm Valley, Mars decides to explore. He meets up with a budgie flock who are not very accepting of a blue budgie. His humans come up with some ways for Mars to blend in, but none seem to work. Will Mars be able to make friends with the wild budgies?
Cooper enjoyed this book. Of course she loved that the star of the story was a blue budgie. She admired Mars for his perseverance and was happy that he finally found acceptance (and a kiss from the queen budgie).
Cooper also liked that this book was written by a family. She thinks that all families should write books about their budgies.
The fires in Australia are still burning and the loss of native wildlife is devastating. Cooper wants to help her animal friends in Australia by holding a fundraiser. Donations can be made on her facebook page and will go to WIRES Australian Wildlife Rescue. If you have been thinking about contributing, any amount will help.
*If you have already contributed to Cooper’s fundraiser or to any of the other organizations providing rescue/relief, Cooper and the flock send you gratitude and love.
In honor of Australia Day, Cooper is holding a mini fundraiser for her animal friends affected by the devastating wildfires in Australia. You can donate to Cooper’s mini fundraiser on her facebook page here.
WIRES (NSW Wildlife, Rescue, Information & Education Service Inc) is a nonprofit, volunteer based, native animal rescue organisation. You can read more about WIRES and their efforts to rescue and rehabilitate native wildlife here: https://www.wires.org.au/
Cooper believes that little things can make a big difference. She is a small bird so she is asking for small donations in the hope that they will add up. Please consider helping the animals in Australia by donating.
