Thank you for giving the wild ones a voice!

You've met the challenge and succeeded!  Congratulations and Thank You!

Fellow Mortals' first goal of $4,000 was actually exceeded by over $1,000--thanks to all of you who donated during the Global Giving Challenge!

Because you helped us meet our goals in this challenge, the wild ones at Fellow Mortals now have a voice that can be heard around the world through the Global Giving web site, and we have some much-needed funds to buy food, medicine and other supplies needed by our wild patients.

Fellow Mortals' mission was born from the need of one orphaned cottontail rabbit.  His precious life was an education and a gift; 26 years later, our work continues as a tribute to that little rabbit who has so far been responsible for another 30,000 wild creatures receiving a second chance. 

One life--human or not--can make a tremendous difference.

The little squirrel in the picture was brought to us starving, unable to eat due to a fractured jaw and maloccluded teeth--the result of being shot with a b.b. gun and having a b.b. embedded in her lower jaw.  She survived and recovered, stronger than ever.  Over two years later, she has established herself in a new territory and meets crows and other squirrels on her own terms and has numerous nest building projects to keep her busy inbetween burying nuts and eating seeds.

Fellow Mortals mission is simple:  We want to make sure that human compassion is never thwarted because there is no outlet for its expression, and we believe that compasson is one of the finest human traits and makes this world a better place for all living beings. 

On behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves, thank you.

Our very best wishes to you for a peaceful and wonderful new year.
