Success!! Almost $2000 raised to help the Gulf!

A HUGE thank you to all who participated in our fundraiser for birds and habitat affected by the Gulf oil disaster. You gave generously and we could not have succeeded without your help and willingness. The two groups, the American Birding Associations Gulf Coast Fund and the Gulf Restoration Network, are very grateful for the funds that will allow them to continue working diligently with the disaster’s effects.

I know the birds, fish, animals, and earth appreciate what we have done.

It was a big day at the clinic – we had 6 volunteer Licensed Acupuncturists on hand to provide 21 acupuncture treatments! Acupuncture student Eva Levy created a handmade, rose patchouli balm for sale the day of the event and donated all proceeds from sales to the causes as well. Donations were made on-line by folks who could not attend the event and all in all we raised $1,996. We are donating 100% of funds generated to the two groups.

If you have any questions about the event, the two groups, or what else you can do to help, please call or email me at 312-320-1968, or If you’d like to find out more about the balm, Eva can be reached at
