Proclaimation... (this went out to The Witches' Voice, various Pagan sites and news agengies) It was picked up by the San Jose Mercury News.
The Gaia’s Guardian Award is given annually by our non-profit Pagan organization to a person or group for "Outstanding work benefiting Mama Gaia and her creatures". These people inspire the rest of us by their courage, caring and compassionate action. You do not have to be Pagan to win this award; what counts are good deeds and a noble heart. (1) Full Circle is happy to announce that the Winner of this year’s Gaia’s Guardian Award is The California Bat Conservation Fund.
The California Bat Conservation Fund is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of bats. The Fund's major activities include:· Dispelling widespread misconceptions about bats through informative presentations and live-bat displays at schools, libraries, museums, and community centers· Restoring injured and orphaned bats to health and returning them to the wild· Working alongside major conservation efforts to replenish shrinking bat populations. Members of this organization will be on hand at the Witches’ Ball to answer questions about their group and to receive this award from Full Circle. This award takes the form of a plaque, and comes with a $250.00 check. (A link to the CBC website is attached to this announcement.)
Please join us in honoring these good people at our annual Witches’ Ball, Saturday, October 23rd, 2004. The Witches' Ball is a costume ball, a Pagan Pride event and a charity fundraiser for the Humane Society. All are welcome. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit our website.
