Welcome to our Kids Korner! This is a great way to encourage your child to be a young philanthropist! Every child, scout troop, class or school, who raises money or does something else, like making toys for our animals, will receive a certificate and be featured on our website. Some kids even sponsor an animal for a year, which can be renewed.
Please read the stories of how these kid’s generosity helped our animals.
And, parents, if your child has a favorite animal, please consider sponsoring an animal as a unique birthday gift. Your child will receive a certificate, photo and information about “their” animal.
This is Jace, a very talented 8 year old in the second grade at Monte Vista Elementary school & an enterprising young lady that set up a lemonade stand for the Wildlife Waystation and collected over $150 for our incredible animals! Way to go, Jace!
Jace would like to challenge all you other kids who are fans of the Wildlife Waystation to come up with some really cool ideas (like a garage sale, recycling, carwash etc.) to see if you can raise as much money as she did to help all of our critters, too!
Jordan's birthday helps the animals!
Jordan Podell, passed on getting birthday presents to collect donations for our animals. He raised enough money to become a sponsor of Kasane, the Waystation’s only hyena.
Sonja earns a scout badge!
Sonja chose the Waystation to earn a scout badge. Her project was to make toys for our exotic birds. Sonja presented 30 toys at a Waystation Ranger meeting and got to meet some of our birds.
Ladero Elementary School Sponsors a Leopard!
Lader Elementary School's mascot is a leopard and one of their teachers, Megan Sommers, who is a supporter of the Waystation, suggested the students might want to sponsor a real leopard from the Waystation.
They sent home flyers announcing their "First Annual" Leopard Sponsorship Drive and in one week they raised $500.00 to sponsor "Dasha"! Every class received their own certificate with a photo of "their" leopard!
Roaarrs of Thanks Kids!
