For those interested, here is an update on the post about Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary.
Dear friend of Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary,
We’re so close…but we still need more help to make it to the finish line!
We’ve been working feverishly behind the scenes on acquiring this property for several months now.
Thanks to your overwhelming response and generosity, we were able to make another cash offer for $97,000.00. Having consulted with, and been working, with Realtors and financial professionals, we had every reason to expect that offer to be accepted.
However, the property is owned by Fannie May and we are dealing with a hugely dysfunctional bureaucracy. They have countered our offer with an asking price of $115,000.00.
Although donations are still coming in, we need to raise another $15,000.00 ASAP.
If you use JustGive, as soon as your donation is recorded, we can show Fannie May that PPS has the funds. We won’t need to pay the sale price until the closing date of Dec. 17th, at which time, JustGive will have dispersed the funds.
Credit card donations can also be made through PayPal from our home page. http://www.peacefulprairie.org/help.html#donateButton
Thanks to so many of you, we’ve come amazingly close to making this sanctuary expansion and new education center a reality for generations to come!
Please spread the word and we’ll get there TOGETHER!

P.S. This property was originally listed at $255,000.00. Due to the market crash, the price has gradually been dropped to the final asking price of $119,000.00. If PPS can purchase it for $115,000.00 (even though we had hoped to get it for 100k), it will still be an unbeatable bargain and once in a lifetime opportunity!
