Now in Its 11th Year, Automaker’s Annual Philanthropic Event Provides Funding for Critical Support Across the National Park System
WASHINGTON, April 25, 2019 /3BL Media/ —The National Park Foundation has announced that Subaru raised $2.1 million for national parks through its 2018 Subaru Share the Love® Event. This donation enables the National Park Foundation to support waste reduction efforts and enhance public awareness and engagement across our National Park System.
Marshall Thomson is a ski patroller in Crested Butte, Colo., but drove to southeast Nebraska to pick up his dog from a breeder at just 8 weeks old. The 12-hour ride back took 36 hours when Thomson and his puppy encountered what he describes as the worst snowstorm he’s seen in his life.
“We were cuddled up in a sleeping bag in the middle of the highway,” Thomson said. “I didn’t know if she’d ever go out in snow after that storm because it was pretty brutal.
For the fifth year in the row, the National Park Foundation and Subaru are partnering up to give a percentage of proceeds from the Subaru “Share the Love” event. It will give a percentage of proceeds to support waste reduction efforts in three of the most visited national parks. The funding has been directed towards pilot projects in Grand Teton, Yosemite and Denali National Parks.

“We spend a lot of time rearing babies, waking up at all hours of the night to bottle-feed them,” says Theodora Flory, a nature enthusiast who goes by Teddy, of the job she’s held for the last four years. Flory, who spends most of her days with a blind screech owl named Marbles by her side, is a wildlife rehabilitation specialist at Tri County Wildlife Care (TCWC), a nonprofit wildlife rescue organization based at the Sierra Nevada Foothills in California.

Many moons ago, German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer said: "... once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed." His quote was presumably in reference to a person turning 50 (or getting older), which back in the day was considered old. As one who passed that milestone a few years ago I am many things but old ain't one of them.
