Final Preparation

As the days trickle down, my house has become more and more hectic. Scrambling around, packing, and tying up loose knots are all occurring in these final hours. Just today, I’ve created forms to use for a school project and I am running around trying to find a perfect camera to use and document my trip. Hopefully, I’ll be able to create a video with some Costa Rican scenes.

I’ve been in contact with the refuge, but the exact date I will be visiting hasn’t been determined. I will most likely give them a call on the hotel’s one phone and organize the date then.

While this trip certainly has humanitarian purposes, there will also be some vacation time as well. We will go hiking, surfing, shopping, eating, and to a chocolate factory! Oh boy!

With all of the final donations together, it is time for me to pack them into two concise bags (check and carry on). I have much left to do, but I wanted to check in just to share the final details before I leave.

I won’t be able to post anything before I leave or while I am gone, but once I am home I will post pictures and stories galore! Stay helpful!

**While on the topic of etsy, I will be picking up some handmade goods from locals down in Costa Rica that will be listed on my etsy page!

Over $500 Worth of Donations from 1-800-Petmeds

Overview

I am here with great news about my Costa Rican Animal Refuge project. The supplies collection has reached a beautiful point and all that is left is to pack and organize the donations for when I leave in mid-June.

1-800-Petmeds was kind enough to mail a box of samples and products that can be used for my supplies collection. I received a plethora of supplies that will be extremely helpful for the trip to the Animal Refuge. There was over $500 dollars worth of supplies, some highlights include the 9 boxes of frontline and the other various medications that are hard to come by in Costa Rica.

I would like to express my extreme gratitude to the people of Petmeds, their generosity was more than appreciated. The animal refuge will certainly be grateful for the supplies as well. I am very happy that there are companies which care about humanitarian causes and events like this truly push me to continue working on making a change, I couldn’t have done this without them.

So if you are in the market for any needed animal supplies, I highly suggest checking out 1-800-petmeds.com for your order. Their prices are hard to beat and they are a great company with a humanitarian.

Stay tuned for more information about the Jaguar Refuge and the final steps before I leave for Costa Rica!

Donation from Northeast Fleece

Thank you for your generosity!

Thank you for your generosity!

Little Known Help Zone’s most recent project involves the Costa Rican Jaguar Rescue Center, an animal refuge centered in Puerto Viejo that takes care of injured and orphaned animals and makes effort to rehabilitate them back into the wild . For my 16th birthday, I will be visiting Costa Rica and volunteering at the refuge for a portion of my trip. The reserve is in need of some supplies, so Little Known Help Zone has made it their goal to collect this supplies to deliver on the trip. Needs include fleece blankets, electric blankets, powdered  goats milk, and medications.

After minimal success with attempts to collect donations, a wonderful surprise came in the mail. Northeast Fleece, a fleece  company based in Massachusetts, sent a package of 6 fleece blankets after I sent an email to their headquarters. These blankets are needed for the young animals of the refuge who have the potential of getting hypothermia since they no longer have the warmth of their mothers. The fleece blankets provide warmth and comfort. This donation will make all the difference for the refuge.

Little Known Help Zone would like to send a big thanks to Northeast Fleece for their generosity.

Stay tuned for continued information about the preliminary supplies collection and the trip itself.
