Rescuer Thank you Packs!
This week a wonderful "elf" at Wildlife Victoria was given these Rescuer Thank you bags to pass onto 5 rescuers of her choosing. Special thanks to Kath from boomerang_bags_nillumbik for these awesome Minion bags that were kindly donated to me this year, they are a perfect size for these packs and I love that they are minions. So many wildlife "minions" out there lol.
The packs contained:
- 1lt hand sanitiser (cleaning up after handling animals)
- can of fluro pink line marking paint (to mark deceased animals to show other rescuers that they have been checked)
- 1 box gloves (to cover up when doing pouch checks)
- 2 packets of baby wipes (cleaning up after a rescue and saved from landfill thanks to Pinchapoo)
- a first aid kit (to help them if needed and all donated & saved from landfill)
- a box of favourites (a treat and thank you just for them)
One pack was also made up containing the above items PLUS a - a pack of Suken products thanks to Pinchapoo (saved from landfill- past their "best before" dates but perfectly fine). This pack was for the elf that was distributing them for me as a thank you for her amazing work and support of my work.
ALL of these packs came from donated items or money that was donated to me. This is what your donations go towards so I really appreciate all the support that I get, without such amazing support WE wouldn't be able to help the wildlife carers and rescuers, who every day, are out there trying their best to Save Our Wildlife. So thank you to everyone that supports my work.
If you have any items you think could help wildlife volunteers, first aid items or "treats" that I could pass onto people or even some bags like these that you could make, please message me. I am always looking for things to help others and always in need of bags like this to make up "gifts" or donate items in.
If you would like to donate so that I can continue to buy things to help, please visit my website to see how: http://libbyskoalacrusade.weebly.com
THANK YOU again to EVERYONE that makes these things possible!
Today we have received two messages from followers asking to donate to Libby's work on behalf of their family members, instead of buying material gifts or gift certificates for Christmas.
We never expected that Libby and her work would have this kind of appeal so never thought about doing it so here it goes. We've never done it before and to try it out are going to offer this process to arrange them.
They’d be a great gift for anyone of any age but especially for that little wildlife warrior in your life! Maybe for the stocking? KK gift? they can be for any amount (we can omit the amount if you like).
If you'd like to gift someone a donation made in their name to Libby's work this Christmas, all you have to do is take the 2 following steps:
1. Make payment (choose your amount)
Libby Fisher (Commonwealth bank)
BSB: 063 594
ACC: 1040 1537
PayPalMe (credit card)
PLEASE do the payment as a payment to family/friends and NOT for goods or services. Otherwise WE pay fees at our end.
2. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the
- copy of the receipt of your payment (screenshot is fine)
- the name the donation will be made in
- the email address of the donor and/or your's if you'd like a copy or are printing it to give as a gift
We will then arrange your certificate (as attached with donor's name and amount filled in) within 24-48hrs. ALL money raised from these will be recorded on Libby's online fundraiser and money will be used to fund the work that she does.
Thank you to the Diamond Valley Lions Club for having me at their Christmas Twilight Market last night.
I was lucky enough to spend the night under this beautiful gum meeting lots of people and raising $333.00 from sales of my items and donations. Thanks to everyone that came and saw me.
Highlights were some local kids recognising me from Behind the News- it was a strange experience being recognised. One boy was in shock that it was me and I was so humbled to see his response.
I was so excited when a couple of my re-purposed macconna jars sold but then I had some of the calendars that I teamed up with Dutch Thunder Wildlife Shelter to create sell AND 4 of my baseball caps! One to a male teenager my age and one is going all the way to France!
So thank you again to everyone that came down and saw me last night- it was my last market for the year. Next week instead of going to school (for "clean up days" and no classes) I am going back up to Dutch to volunteer for a week before Christmas. Cannot wait!
If you'd like to donate to my christmas hampers I am still trying to get washing powder (sensitive brand) and a couple of items i posted on my wall this week that are on sale or checkout my Hamper album for ideas.
If you’d like to help with my Christmas hampers and donations to rescuers & carers like this, here’s how:

Remember- EVERY DOLLAR HELPS! Even the cost of a takeaway coffee helps 💚🐨🦘
I’m so happy to be able to help rescuers, carers and amazing unfunded hospitals like Koala Hospital Port Macquarie. They do amazing work. I first donated in 2017 and this year I’m proud to say, I donated again.
I’m sad to read that a koala that I “adopted” back in 2017 has recently passed away. Oxley Kaylee lived a long life despite her challenges- thanks to this hospital.
Thankyou to Port Mac for featuring me in your newsletter again. It’s great awareness for the work I do and hopefully it inspires others (especially kids) in ways to help wildlife.
