The Appalachian Wildlife Refuge, a nonprofit wildlife sanctuary in North Carolina, asked animal lovers to donate clean mascara wands and people have been only too happy to help. The tiny bristles are perfect for cleaning the fur of injured and orphaned animals. So if you are up for it clean off your old wands in hot soapy water and send them to:
P.O. Box 1211
Skyland, NC 28776
Not a makeup fan, you can still help save woodland critters in need: Appalachian Wildlife is about to open a new wildlife triage facility in Candler, North Carolina, and they’re requesting donations to help get it off the ground. Their website also has an Amazon wishlist of additional items needed to help save wild animals.
