I have been lucky enough to be able to volunteer with Loggerhead Turtle Hospital and have seen absolutely wonderful and dedicated loving people giving their all to help these injured and sick turtles!
The compassion and caring among all the staff and Volunteers is truly heartening. LMC does the most fantastic work helping injured sea turtles from all over the country. Presently we have quite a few turtles that were saved from cold-stunning up in Cape cod and many have been healed and are now being released! You could not find more helpful and compassionate staff & volunteers in any non-profit endeavor!
Sadly---right after letting LMC know about this site and the grant they are awarding---someone at LMC felt that it was "inappropriate" that i had "broken the chain of command" there and had the gall and arrogance to mention this to the "higher-ups" there (and perhaps embarassed THEIR Bosses by showing how they had been incompetent in not knowing about GREAT NONPROFITS and this possible Grant) ----so I was called in the director's office and in about 7 seconds told I was being fired as a "volunteer", and the director, Tommy Cutt, REFUSED to even tell me a "reason" for WHY he was firing me as a Volunteer. seems some "higherups" have very defensive and nasty sociopathic tendencies and mechanisms to try and hide their ineptness and lack of people-skills?
As I pointed out to the newly hired CEO/President- JACK LIGHTON, who also would not give me a "reason" for why he ordered TOMMY CUTT to fire me----They probably would not have treated a TURTLE as harshly and meanly as they treated me for only doing something with the good of the Turtles and the Mission of LMC in mind. Sometimes Non-profits DO actually hire and keep "LOSERS" and crass cowardly people on their staff.
