Hi there, I've never done this sort of thing before but thought I'd give it a try. Firstly I'd like to say this isn't the only means of raising money I am trying as I'm also doing a bake off and a few other things. Basically I used to work as part of an educational outreach program at a zoo and I've worked with exotic animals for many years. I used to conduct talks and interactive sessions with a variety of animals such as snakes, lizards, bugs among many others. I now work with children with special educational needs full time and I feel like it is hugely beneficial to a childs confidence, general wellbeing and learning objective to understand the importance of the natural world. Therefore I am attempting to raise money in order to purchase a few small to medium enclosures, (viva, terrariums etc), in order for me to take in a few rescue animals which could then help educate children in what the animals need to live and encourage a generation to love and respect a part of the natural world that they may have never had any interaction with. Thank you for your time and whatever I raise would go towards something that I feel is very important to the modern world.
