Birds Korea May Fundraisers: A Summary
Thank you all for your support and generosity this month in helping make both Birds Korea fundraisers great successes!
On May 5th we hosted a breakfast fundraiser, prize raffle, and lottery at HQ Bar in Busan. The turnout was fantastic and could not have been as successful without the help of Park Meena, Lee Jeonga, Chon Hyonae and their friend, and new eco-class student, Sungsim (all in the above photo!). The owner of HQ Bar, Mr. Tom Locke, cannot be thanked enough for his generosity at this event and we look forward to future events at his establishment.
The second, and equally as successful, fundraising event was the 2011 Birds Korea World Migratory Bird Day Birdathon held on the weekend of May 14th. A blog entry has already been posted to thank the participants individually but they cannot be thanked enough! Without the support network you all provide for Birds Korea none of this would have been possible. Thank you for your help in raising awareness and expanding our presence in Korea by bringing out more interested people.
We have raised some funding for the Spoon-billed Sandpiper research project scheduled for this coming September and October! 100% of these donations are going towards a very important cause and helps to ensure the success of this project.
Thank you all for your support,
Tonni Knox- Hiitola and Jason P. Loghry
