Today is Giving Tuesday. A day dedicated to helping nonprofit organizations in our community and it’s particularly important this year, because many non-profits have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. One non-profit that we have been visiting with on the show is Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge in Eureka Springs. On this giving Tuesday, they are holding their 28th Anniversary Online Pawty, complete with paw-paintings, animal toys, gift certificates and more. To check out their auctions, click here.
