Will You #Hoot2Give This Holiday Season?

Posted: Updated:

Hey there -- here's the deal: my team and I worked with the good folks at National Wildlife Federation this past summer to help raise money for their org (with #Squirrels4Good and @common_squirrel). It's about that time of year when birds are migrating and changing their nesting habits, and we really want to continue helping out the good folks at NWF and the little critters. Since the birds will be out and about, it may not be a big deal to just snap a picture of them.

We want you to #Hoot2Give for the holidays. Each time you share a photo of a bird (maybe an owl) or describe one you have just seen, and use the hashtag #Hoot2Give, I'll give $1 to NWF, up to $5k.

I see birds (and squirrels) every day in my backyard (there's often a bird party at Craig's house), and you've probably seen my photos on Facebook or Twitter. I'm guessing you see birds too, and I'd love for you to share them for a good cause. I'd like you to join me, and #Hoot2Give to raise money for NWF. You can give us a hoot on Facebook, Twitter (@craignewmark), and my #Hoot2Give Pinterest board.

I'm not an outdoorsman, I'm just a nerd who'd really like to see some good bird pictures -- and maybe even some hooting videos. NWF offered to take me owling, but I won't have a chance to get to Washington, D.C. -- so I hope that some of you have some good owl photos to share! Will you #Hoot2Give to raise some money for NWF this holiday season?
