Birds For Brains Project needs your vote! (1 Viewer)

My name is Mat Paulson from Moorhead, MN. My kids Ashlyn 8, and Tanner 7 and I have entered an environmental project to the Nim's Island Reel Thinking Contest and we need more votes.

My kids Great Grandpa moved into an assisted living home and really missed his yard and seeing the birds that came to visit. We set up a birdfeeder by his window of his apartment and after doing so saw a change come over him. He always has stories now of the birds that visit his new home and it keeps him occupied and alert.

In doing this my kids and I thought how nice it would be to do this for more people. The Nim's Island Reel Thinking Contest may let us do this if we win. The prize money will be used to buy feeders and seed so that we can set them up at other assisted living and nursing homes. The Audubon Society and local Wildlife Society have already expressed interest in helping out and we will also recruit Boy and Girl Scouts as well as 4H groups to join in. We also can get discounts on seed and feeders from local businesses that are showing support.

If any of you reading this could go to the website below and vote for the Birds for Brains Project we would greatly appreciate it.


Thank you,

Mat, Ashlyn and Tanner
