This is the time of year when the days grow colder and
shorter and buffalo start to move toward the park boundaries.
Dedicated volunteers have been running daily patrols
since early November, sacrificing time with family and
friends to stand with the buffalo and protect them from
December is a time of reflection and of paying thanks
for our lives, our families, and our friends. It is
the time of year when I pay special thanks for my involvement
with a grassroots movement which brings together so
many wonderful people to speak out for the wild creatures
and future generations.
I know that the gross commercialization of this special
time of year can grate on one's nerves. But it can be
nice to give a meaningful gift or remembrance to friends
and loved-ones. If you are looking for a special gift
and you want to support our work for the buffalo in
the process, our "supporter to supporter"
gifts are perfect for you.
Our supporters are a creative lot and many are artists
and sustainable business owners who give to the buffalo
through donations of artwork. This year we have a beautiful
array of buffalo-inspired works ranging from sculptures,
jewelry, buffalo-nickel hair ties and even "Peace
on Earth, Good Will to Buffalo" sweatshirts. Of
course our classic Buffalo Field Campaign tee shirts
and notecards are always available as well.
Drop in at to the Buffalo
Bazaar if you need a gift and would like to purchase
one that supports our dedicated work. It's a quick surf
over - so go ahead and browse....
Please check back regularly as we have limited items--like
"Tears for the Buffalo--a beautiful sculpture from
Judy at Feathers on the Wind Studio--and will be adding
other one-of-a kind pieces until we close shop on December
Another wonderful supporter, Melanie, is again offering
an ebay auction of a handcrafted Father Christmas. This
one-of-a-kind creation made just for the buffalo is
even more beautiful than last year's, if that is possible.
Check it out at http://www.OCeallaighOriginals.com/
and 100% of the proceeds will again go to the Buffalo
Field Campaign. This auction only runs until December
10th so please take a look and make a bid!!
If you have an item you would like to share with other
supporters over the next two weeks, send a message to
and we'll see what we can work out.
Thanks for taking a look at our wares and for letting
me use your time to promote this fundraiser. Thanks
to all of you who have sent in donations - and if you
have never contributed - be assured that every donation
small or large is used frugally and effectively on the
front lines of the struggle to secure the future of
America's only continuously wild, genetically pure buffalo
Thanks also to all of you who take the time to send
a prayer or a card to the hard working volunteers at
Camp. It is a difficult time of year for these activists
to be away from home. Their dedication to protecting
the buffalo is unfailing and without them the true plight
of the Yellowstone buffalo would not be known.
Thanks so much!
For the Buffalo,
