Donating to Wands for Wildlife

Donating to Wands for Wildlife
Since the launch of our new make-up line in July, we've been receiving questions about what to do with the mascara wands once a tube of mascara has been used.
And guess what? 
We have an answer! Donate them to Wands for Wildlife (!

Wands for Wildlife is a small non-profit run by volunteers who use 
donated mascara wands to remove fly eggs and larva from the fur and 
feathers of orphaned wild animals. Mascara wands are the perfect size 
and work wonderfully given that the bristles are so close together. If 
you want to see photos of adorable critters being delicately groomed, 
head over to the Wands for Wildlife website for a bit of heart-warming 
wands for wildlife

This inspiring  and compassionate program has been a huge success, so 
much so that donations are limited to twice a year: in February and 
October. And with October just around the corner, we wanted to highlight 
our support for Wands for Wildlife and also encourage our customers to 
donate their used wands. It's an easy way to take action and make a 
difference for animals in need.

Ready to donate? Great! Follow these simple steps (*Please only send 
donations in February and October*):

1. Wash wands in warm, soapy water to remove any residual mascara
2. Fill out the donation form on their website
3. Send your completed form + cleaned wands to: Appalachian Wild, P.O. 
Box 1211, Skyland, NC 28776
4. Tell your friends!

Wands for Wildlife also accepts monetary donations and has a wish list 
on their website for other supplies to help save precious wildlife. You 
can learn more by visiting their website.
