“Flights for Freedom”
Happy Independence Month to all of our bird lovers, enthusiasts, supporters, staff, volunteers, and especially to all of the 600+ birds that have found their way to Florida Exotic Bird Sanctuary to enjoy Independence Day everyday!
This is such a special time for FEBS and we are reaching out to all of you to help with the wonderful expansion project underway in Hudson. There are so many families who have contacted us to help give their bird the freedom that only FEBS can provide. Therefore, we took action and have been working nonstop over the last year to build a new beautiful parrot-dize for not only our current flock, but those waiting to arrive.
Our goal is to raise $100,000 for this project. We have received a very generous $5000.00 matching fund from an one of our wonderful supporters, that will make every dollar you donate double. We would like to request that each and every one of you to donate at least $20.00 (the cost of a weeks’ worth of coffee) to help us buy the materials and pay for additional labor to build 20 new state-of-the-art aviaries. We are reaching out to over almost 2000 of you—our supporters—and believe with the help of all of you we can make this become a reality!
After a long two year search, FEBS and its flock have finally found the perfect property for our desperately needed expansion. More importantly, we will be able to give flight cages to ALL of the 600+ parrots in our care! We will also be able to help many more parrots and the families that are wanting nothing more than to have their parrots "Just be a bird!"
A project this massive is going to take lots of dedication and financial support! The Staff, Officers, Board Members, Members and Volunteers are committed to putting their all into the expansion and relocation of FEBS’ parrots in our Lifelong Care Facility.
So we ask all of you, our loyal supporters, to please consider helping in any way you can! Sponsoring a flight cage is a really helpful part of the bigger vision and we really need you guys, the bird families and friends of our flock!
Please consider that this project will cost an estimated $500,000! In the last year of acquiring this new property we have come a long way through the help of many of our devoted members and owners of the parrots – not to mention the endless hours of volunteer work from our Board of Directors, volunteers, their families and anyone that could help us with this massive project. We and the birds are eternally grateful for all of your help
We still have along way to go so if you have a free weekend or some time that you would like to come work with us, please contact us and we can make arrangements for your stay, and put you to work! It is a very fulfilling job that will leave you with a great sense of pride that you helped these parrots in such an awesome way!
If you or a business that you work for are able to help or if you know of anyone who may be able to help FEBS please contact Patricia Norton (A.K.A. "Birdmother") toll free: 1-844-352-2473, ext 1, and we can schedule dates that we will be putting teams together to help.
