It’s the little things that make a difference, isn’t it?
Marveling at the autumn colours or being surrounded by family and friends. The warmth of home when you come in from the cold. The playful chickadees who keep us company over the long, cold winters. The smile of a child as they spot the pumpkin pie (and, let’s be honest, you’re grinning, too!).
This Thanksgiving, we felt it was important to let you know how thankful we are for YOU, and every little step you take with us to help Canada’s wildlife. Thank you for your dedication, we couldn’t do it without you.
