My Birthday Wish
I'm Donating My Birthday to Charity!
Every year, my friends and family try to decide what to give me for my birthday and while I always appreciate the gifts and the fact that they are thinking of me, this year I want to do something special. Volunteering and donating to charity is my passion and the ferrets need our help more than I need gifts. 45 is a milestone birthday and it would mean so much to me to inspire people to donate to charity for my 45th birthday.
Update: 45 came and went, as did 46, and 47, but I still ask for donations for my birthday. Thanks to all of you that gave to charity for my birthday, or asked for donations for charities on your own birthdays.
Create a Charity Lens For My Birthday

I know money is tight for everyone, so the easiest way for you to give me a wonderful gift for my birthday is to create a charity lens!
Please consider creating a new lens, on the topic of your choice, and changing the royalty settings to donate at least a portion of the proceeds to Ferrets Unlimited, or the charity of your choice.
Creating a charity lens means that your lens has the potential to make a donation every month, without costing you a penny.
Thank You! - Thank you so much, for granting my birthday wish!
These wonderful people took the time to grant my birthday wish making a donation or creating a charity lens.
About Ferrets Unlimited
Ferrets Unlimited has been rescuing ferrets since approximately 1993.
They have rescued a large number of ferrets over the years. Some loved, some abused, some from homes where the former owner had no clue on care, but purchased the animal on impulse. Ferrets Unlimited is dedicated to finding loving, caring homes for every ferret.
They turn no ferret away, no matter the health, age, or lack of training. Medical needs are met, and manners are taught.
Ferrets Unlimited believes that educating the potential pet owner is one of the most crucial things a rescue organization can do. This applies to both ferret rescues and other animal organizations. An educated pet owner can provide a safer, happier, and healthier environment for their pet, thus making both the pet and themselves a good match.
I began volunteering at Ferrets Unlimited in 2002, when the former shelter director was diagnosed with cancer.
