Valerie has a great gift for helping both animals and children in need. For the animals, the need is daily care for the resident animals and homes for the rescued.. For some children, the need can be simple: exposure to animals and the natural world. For others with disabilities or disadvantages, it can be even more crucial. Valerie has been working with disadvantaged children for twenty years. The other day, she told me, she ran into one of those children, grown up, happy and healthy. He told her what it had meant to him as a child to come to Rattlebox. What better testimonial can there be?

As someone who has donated to Rattlebox in the past I'm happy to report that it has been some of the best money I have ever spent. One can actually see in a very real and tangible way how your money effects positive change. Animals and children alike benefit on a daily basis from the work Rattlebox does and it's a wonderful feeling to help in any way possible!

Rattlebox Nature center has done fantastic work by introducing underprivileged children in our community to the wonders of the natural world. Valerie gives these children, who have no exposure to anything beyond their own difficult worlds an opportunity to see and feel a live animal. This exposure builds confidence, wonder and interest in these young minds. Thank you Valerie for opening up these children to a new world.
