GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) – November 29th is Giving Tuesday. What is Giving Tuesday? After receiving so much with Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, it’s a day to give back to those in need. It is a movement to create an international day of giving at the beginning of the Christmas and holiday season.
Middle schooler, Mackenzie Couch, visited Maranda in studio with Kari Parker from Binder Park Zoo. After hearing about the last wolf dying at the Zoo, Mackenzie wanted to give back. She decided to forego asking for Christmas presents this year in order to raise funds to bring two young, Mexican wolf brothers to Binder Park Zoo. Mackenzie’s goal to raise $10,000 will help cover expenses for the wolves to travel from California to Michigan, plus necessary upgrades to their exhibit. Will you answer the call of the wild?
