Beautiful Christmas Cards with a Mission

I am blessed each year with a beautiful card from local artists Lance and Jean Rudegeair and this year it's all about the Black Footed Ferret. I treasure these cards for their beauty and the stories behind them. It's almost unbearable to realize how close to extinction these gorgeous animals were and how the few that are left in the wild are due to efforts by conservationists.

Watch out around town for "knit boxes" to leave your knitted pieces ( 10-12" wide and anywhere from 2" to 24" long) located at: Brother Bear's Cafe on Dayton Street, The Emporium and Yellow Springs Senior Center on Xenia Ave.
Keep an eye out for flyers around town.
