All donations will help important programs that help the care of the animals, conservation projects, and education programs. If you're able to raise $100 or more in donations, you won't be going home empty-handed. You'll have the chance to pick one of three prizes: a long-sleeve performance shirt, insulated water bottle, or a bamboo utensil set.
