Bats In Need IndieGoGo! Signal boost!
Bats In Need IndieGoGo Update:
I just have to say that this is AMAZING. This morning we’re at $2635, well on our way to our first stretch goal of doubling up to $4000. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
While we’re doing our thing here, the folk of BATSonline are running a little raffle on their own forum to help benefit bats who were already in need before the heat situation broke out. I’d like to thank the perk contributors who have also donated things to that effort as well. Your generosity is amazing.
The heat-stressed bats in rehab are doing well, some are traveling around a little bit as they get situated into facilities best able to care for them. Wee little Faraday whom you met before is with my initial contact, a delightful carer by whose name is Meg. Other bats from the heat incidents are with an assortment of care groups and carers. These six are in the care of AJ, and seem to be doing well.
On to an update about perks! The bat platter is gone, but my mother will be donating again! This time she’s doing some amazing ceramic stoneware tiles. I have some of these in my own home, and get TONS of compliments (I use them as coasters). Watch for those going up soon, probably in the $25 perk range. Also going up shortly are hand-illustrated greeting cards featuring bat scenes. These are being done by cartoonist Lora Hibbard and are just gorgeous. They’ll be at the $7 level. We’re down to just two BatSmax prints left, and two puzzles- once these are gone we will NOT be adding more of them.
Please check our FaceBook for more updates and photos of the rescued bats as I continue to stay in touch with their caretakers. Keep sharing, tweeting, and talking about the campaign- every little bit counts.
