I love the excitement around my budding monarchs and decided to try to do some good by starting a Name a Monarch fundraiser for the LA Regional Food Bank.
Selection and naming is first come, first serve. Currently, there are 10; eight chrysalis and two caterpillars on their way to becoming chrysalis. You can find their bios with their pictures.
Minimum donation to name a budding monarch is $25 - this amount feeds 100 people in the LA area. When you make your donation, please note or message me the number of the monarch you would like to name (see the numbered photos). All donations go directly to LA Regional Food Bank.
If all 10 are sponsored at $25 each, that's 1,000 meals for people in need. Don't we all need a little help right now?
With your donation, the name of your choice (PG, please) will be posted near the chrysalis or caterpillar, you'll get the story of where your chrysalis or caterpillar is located and when first spotted plus you will get daily photos and updates on the progress towards becoming a monarch.
This is nature and things happen. There is no guarantee each will successfully emerge as a monarch.
As a #WeFeedLA supporter, I am making a commitment to raise funds to provide nutritious meals to our neighbors in need. Please help me reach my goal by making a contribution to my fundraiser.
We are sure you understand that this pandemic is likely to hit the low-income communities, especially the homeless, seniors and families with children.
I invite you to join me in making a difference in our community.
