Wands for Wildlife® is now operating as a separate nonprofit organization outside of Appalachian Wild.
PLEASE NOTE: Wand collection is currently paused
Wands for Wildlife® has grown into a global nonprofit! Wands for Wildlife becoming a separate nonprofit allows Appalachian Wild to focus on helping the wildlife of Western North Carolina, while the team at Wands for Wildlife® expands efforts to support wildlife caregivers along with encouraging greater mindfulness of the impact of human activities, including the use of plastics, on the environment. The Wands for Wildlife® organization is inspiring people around the world to help wild animals and the environment through the re-purposing of discarded mascara wands.
It is clear from the large number of wands sent in to the new Wands for Wildlife® organization and the number of people participating, this initiative is very much needed. However, in order for the small team of volunteers at Wands for Wildlife® to get wands into the hands of more wildlife caregivers and to complete strategic planning for the future growth of the new organization, the wand collection is being paused until 2021.
