If you’ve never heard of a lemonade stand raising money for birds, why not start one, or find another way to contribute? Organizations that help protect birds, restore their habitats, or study them so we can learn about their status and threats, are always in need of financial support. These groups may be dependent on grant money, which can be short-term and difficult to obtain, so donations from concerned citizens and, especially, memberships, can provide essential resources. Learn about the organizations in your area which help birds, and find out how you can contribute or join. It may be that volunteering your time is the best gift you can give, and it’s one these organizations will value immensely!
