Rochan Needs A New Habitat

Nov 302016
 

screen-shot-2016-11-30-at-2-12-00-amNearly a year ago, the Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport welcomed an adorable Red Panda named Rochan, who quickly became a visitor favorite.

By mid-summer, the zoo announced that the little guy was here to stay, but he would need a more suitable habitat.

This month, while everything is a little slow, the zoo is working on raising enough money to construct Rochan’s new home.

From his dreams of tree-top sunbathing to a 24/7 bamboo buffet, Rochan deserves only the best. In order to help build his posh pad, the zoo needs your help!  Your donation today will help them turn $75,000 into $150,000. Every dollar you donate will be matched 1:1 by the Werth Family Foundation Challenge Grant.

Remember, the Beardsley Zoo vas the victim of state funding cuts several years ago, and depends upon public fundraising to continue running. It is Connecticut’s only zoo, and we are fortunate to have it located so close to Orange.

thThe Amity PTSO has a certain amount of money allocated in its budget every year to support families in need but the more they can collect the more they can help!

Every holiday season the Amity High School PTSO supports a family in need from Bethany, Woodbridge and Orange. If you would like to donate contact your town coordinator listed below. Monetary donations or gift cards to Walmart, Stop & shop, Target and Kohls are the most helpful so the PTSO can shop and meet the family’s needs in the best way possible.

All donations can be sent into the Amity High School main office by Thursday, December 9 so there is time to shop and prepare the gifts for delivery.

Don’t Get Ripped Off! — Online Clothing Sellers To Avoid

screen-shot-2016-11-28-at-1-26-06-pmIn an attempt to help Orange Live readers from throwing their money away on “too good to be true” deals this holiday season, we are doing a little netsurfing to save you time.

You’re checking your Facebook Page or surfing online and suddenly see an adorable dress that your sister would absolutely adore.  You can’t believe the price, and go for it because it will be the perfect holiday present.

After paying for the gift (which is immediately processed by the company), you anxiously wait for the package to arrive, but Christmas comes and goes and when you do finally receive it, the item is, well, junk.

As you try to research the company (after the fact) you find that information is nearly non-existent.

Marie Claire magazine recently published a list of online retailers to avoid at any cost … at any time of year.

In short: they are 1. TwinkleDeals.com, 2. Wish.com, 3 FashionMia.com, 4. SammyDress.com, 5. Rosegal.com, 6. DressLily.com, 7. BeckyDress.com and 8. Zaful.com.
