i liked your idea about the zoo. proceeds can go to something different each year but these days the zoo is in desperate need. wouldn't it be nice to help?

Keywester,

I suppose we should always help people over animals, if presented with a choice, however, animals have no voice and can not help themselves. As God said and provided...we are to be stewards of all animals. I have a special place in my heart for animals. That is why it upsets me to see very large sharks taken out of those waters, as has been done this past Spring and Summer. I am certainly not opposed to giving some proceeds to the animals, be it the zoo or the numerous shelters in the area. They can always use the money.

Hi P'kid -

I was just browsing and re-discovered Kenny's idea about the Sea Turtle fest ... maybe the proceeds could be dedicated to preservation of the sea turtle? Maybe the two fests could be combined? Just a thought.

Looks like a win-win situation to support the zoo, the Butterfly House and the turtles, too, if at all possible. All of these situations in their special way serve our environment here as well as the tourist economy and ecology, thus helping people. :-)
