Major fund-raising is upon us towards the goal of creating the pond on the property! Read the exciting news of how this creation will happen and who will be involved. Every donation helps and we appreciate any and all
Nice article regarding the donation from long-term bonsai collector Neal Hern and also about the collecting day on the property site.
Exciting information about the new pond and green development.
How can the number 25,000 be brought down to size? It does seem to be a lofty goal. But what if there were 2,500 interested people, all willing to strive for a single goal? Each of them chose to not eat lunch one day and instead give the $10 to that single goal. That equals $25,000.
Now maybe there are not that many who are striving for that goal, maybe there are only 1250 people. That would mean a $20 dinner would be lost and the $20 x 1250 equals $25,000.
This is really interesting now, there are only 625 people to depend on and the goal would be reached when ONE really nice dinner that year was cancelled. Take that $40 and again do the math, 625 people give $40 and the tally is again $25,000.
I could do that!!! That is how we could build our latest project: The pond, a 100′ wide approximately 400′ long POND! The pond is the foundation of the exhibit. It would give tremedous freedom—-Not only the care of the exhibit trees would be much easier but all of the beautiful landscape around and in the exhibit area would not ever be in jeopardy. The flora and fauna would flourish and the vista would be for every visitor to enjoy.
Thus far over $2500 has been donated towards the effort. When does ZERO ADD UP TO A LOT?? W hen we ADD one more zero to the NUMBER — THAT adds up to a huge POND!
EAT IN, BUILD A POND!
THANKS TO ALL WHO HAVE DONATED THUS FAR TO THIS SPECIAL PROJECT.
