All I want for Christmas is…


OK friends and family members… I love you all. You know that you don’t need to buy me anything for Christmas. I’m not lacking the newest gadgets or the latest toys. In fact, I have much more than I truly need.

But if you insist on giving me a gift this year, why don’t you consider buying me a sea otter or a caribou – or at least contributing to their long-term survival and habitat protection with a special gift to CPAWS?

Giving symbolic gifts that make a real difference to wilderness in Canada is the kind of thing I get excited about. It’s a gift that keeps on giving – not just to me, but to future generations. After all, isn’t that the true spirit of the season?

Charities across Canada are offering the opportunity to give seasonal gifts that give back. I know I’m biased, but as a wilderness lover and someone who cares deeply about the future of CPAWS,  I’m hoping you’ll visit gowildgifts.ca to see how you can wrap up wilderness -- not just in my honour -- but for all of your loved ones AND for your favorite wild animals.

And by the way, I’m not just saying this… I mean it. I really don’t need another time-saving appliance for the kitchen. We live in a highly motivated consumer world that generates so much packaging and waste. We’re a wealthy society – most of us don’t need any more ‘stuff’. I appreciate that you want to show me that you care about me at this time of the year. I hope you’ll do s by sharing your caring with the wolf or the pine marten too!

Éric.
