Class of 2013 Whooping Cranes NEED you!

MileMaker logo  Happy 10th Anniversary MileMaker Campaign!

Each year since 2003 we have carried out a MileMaker fundraising campaign – that makes this year the 10th anniversary of this important campaign!

The way it works is quite simple — We have determined that each mile of the southward migration has a cost associated with it. This covers insurance, fuel and maintenance costs for the ground vehicles and aircraft, food for the cranes and the crew, any repairs or maintenance required for the crane enclosures, etc.

By far, the MileMaker Campaign funds the largest portion of our annual budget and is critical to the success of our work.

Only 175 miles of the aircraft-guided journey are sponsored so can get the young cranes are far as Illinois currently.

For obvious reasons, we’d like to take them to the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge in north Florida so we have a looong way to go.

Please consider becoming a MileMaker sponsor and help us help the Class of 2013.

You have the choice of sponsoring a full mile ($200), a half mile ($100) or even a quarter mile ($50). In addition to helping these young Whooping cranes, your name will be entered into a draw for an incredible thank you gift, which will be held when all the miles are sponsored. If your name is drawn you will receive a two-week stay at a private home in beautiful Costa Rica!

Sponsor a full mile and you get four entries – sponsor a half mile and you get two – and quarter mile sponsors receive one entry into the draw.

We’ll also list your support on the MileMaker recognition page so everyone will see your support of Whooping cranes.

It’s a new season, with a new class of young Whooping crane students – Can you help?

Only a few short weeks left before these Whooping cranes are ready to migrate!
