Shydyn presenting his donation check to Mady Rothchild, AIDA President at the Ruth Melichar Bird Center.
In 2012, Shydyn’s only wish for his 9th birthday was to receive “money for the animals” from the 35 guests attending his party. With family and friends supporting his generous wish, Shydyn was pleased to present AIDA with the amazing sum of $815.00. What a precious gift. Shydyn, you’re an angel!
For Emma’s birthday in 2012, rather than presents, she requested donations be made to AIDA and she proudly presented us with $200. Emma’s friend Lara’s mother, Alecia, had raised baby squirrels for us as a foster parent and the girls fell in love with them.
