About Helene and a polar bear…
They are both a treat and a very generous gift from my good friend, Tim.
A Mexican Gray Wolf “Helene” and a polar bear virtually adopted in my name!
Some of you may know that I am a supporter of the Wolf Conservation Center in South Salem, NY and Polar Bears International [among many other shelters / endangered species & animal awareness organizations]. Receiving these two certificates, apart from being an extremely generous act from Tim, made me proud and happy beyond words! Thank you, Tim. It’s an unbelievable gift!
It may be cold and gray outside but if we look we can always find color.
