Some bad news and some good news...

The bad news is Sheila passed away in her sleep this morning.

The good news is all the FRSO fosters on the Giving Tree have Santas.

Subject: Only 56 left!!!!!

As of this morning, there are only 56 babies on the tree asking for
small gifts to make their lives a little easier- please, lets get
this tree knocked out by the end of the month!!!!! There is one of the
Canadian (none of whom have had any picked) shelters asking for just
some ping pong balls for their little ones. Come on now, how hard is
that? Some just want a soft blanket, or a little toy. It really isn't
that much to ask for. So many good people have stepped up already, and
if you know someone who might not have thought about these little ones
being in shelters or maybe they were planning on sending a care package
and time just got away from then, please let everyone know, we just
have a few more on this tree to finish it for this year.

As of this writing, 30 ferrets need santas on 5 giving trees starting
with page 44!
http://www.mkaresq.com/The_Giving_Tree_2007/Tree_44.htm

This last week 5 trees were completed - pg 33, 34, 37, 43, 49.

Pg 44,  6 - Scout, Smokey, Mocha, Keegan, Orson, Bugaboo
Pg 45,  7 - Sugarbaby, Sneakyfoots, Samantha, Jinny, Janka, Henry,
            Sweetiefoots
Pg 51,  5 - Thumper, Snickers, Sam, Saki, MinnieMe
Pg 52, 12 - Tara, Sophie, Shilo, Sanchez, Osirus, Isis, Sasha, Gus,
            Fergie, DoDo, Artem, Tess

Just to highlight a few -
The little ones on page 51 at the Washington shelter can get adrenal
surgeries for $100 and are looking for sponsors. They also would like
treats or toys or anything you'd like to send so if you can't afford
the adrenal surgery donation send them a gift box instead!

Scout and Smokey on page 44 don't have a want list but I'd bet if you
email the shelter she'll let you know what they'd like!

Mocha and friends on page 44 at the VA shelter also don't have a wish
list so why not package up a few hammocks, toys, and treats for them!

Bugaboo on page 44 and others on page 45 at the MD shelter would like
crocheted fish and eggs, tubes, and soft warm bedding.

Orson on page 44 would like ferretone and cheweezels and I'm sure the
on-line ferret stores would be happy to take your order and deliver the
gifts!

On page 52 the little canadian fuzzies -
If you are in the US and would like to choose Canadian ferrets it is
very easy to do - purchase gifts,pack, label, take it to the post
office and fill out an international mailing form - be sure to mark
'gift' and an amount $50 or less so they don't have to pay fees on
the package, pay and mail! On all packages consider adding delivery
confirmation so you can check the number on line to make sure your
package was delivered. I opt for insurance on costly packages. Of all
the packages I mailed out this holiday season, 1 never arrived and it
was the one package I didn't include delivery confirmation on. Include
your email address in the package so the shelters can email you when
their packages arrive!

You can send gifts without choosing to be a santa. A toy or two, a
hammock, a blanket, a treat or two, a gift certificate a bag of food,
can be mailed to any of the fuzzies on the tree without filling out the
santa form! Or a box full of gifts could be sent to the shelter! Or if
you are in the area drop them off! Several on the tree are at the same
shelters. And it would be nice to remember the shelter caretakers too.
One item may not seem like a lot, but if 10 people send one item to the
same shelter, they add up! And even if the shelter receives only one
item, that is one item more than they had before!

Thank you to all who have sent gifts to these very deserving precious
little beings! The trees are almost complete with Santas!
