So how’s that search for a unique Mother’s Day gift going? You know — the one that isn’t going to break the bank but includes the kids in the process. Still scratching your head? Well here’s a pretty cool idea that you and the kids can have tons of fun with and most importantly, will put a big smile on Mom’s face on Sunday morning.
This Saturday May 7th, just in the nick of time for Mother’s Day, Powell River Orphaned Wildlife Society (PROWLS ) is holding a fun little fundraiser at the Farmer’s Market where you and the kids can buy a wooden birdhouse for Mom and the kids can have a wonderful time custom painting the birdhouse in all of Mom’s favourite colours. Paints and brushes are supplied and there will be table set up where the kids can work their magic for Mom. Total cost is $25 per birdhouse which includes an annual PROWLS membership for Mom (which comes with an awesome fridge magnet too!).
PROWLS will also be selling raffle tickets at the Farmer’s Market on Saturday for an absolutely gorgeous ceramic bird feeder created by Wildwood Pottery. Individual tickets are $2 each or 3 for $5 and the winning ticket will be drawn at market closing on Saturday. So if the kids are too old to get excited about painting a bird house and you lack confidence in your artistic ability, come by the PROWLS table at the market on Saturday. Hey, you were pretty lucky when you met your partner. Buy a few raffle tickets while you’re at the market and that same luck might send you home with a nice Mother’s Day surprise for her.
If you want to support of a local wildlife rescue organization but don’t know much about PROWLS, check out our Facebook page or better yet, come by and visit us at the market on Saturday and show your support by purchasing an annual membership. It’s only $10 and like we pointed out above, membership gets you an awesome fridge magnet! See you all on Saturday!
