WILD CAT SANCTUARY
Morgan the Bobcat



Morgan dated 2012

Morgan, a 9-month-old bobcat was named after Morgan Fairchild in honor of the efforts she went to to save the young bobcat.  Morgan was found in the Ritz Carlton Hotel in San Diego, CA. Apparently, a worker brought her across the border as a baby. When she became too much for him to handle, he abandoned her in a room at the hotel. She was rescued by the California Wildlife Center where they hoped to rehab her and release her back into the wild. However, she had imprinted from her human caretaker and the Dept. of Fish and Game deemed her unreleasable. So, they started a search for a sanctuary for her. If one had not been found, she would have had to have been euthanized (per DFG). Morgan reached out to some of her contacts, and was able to assist in finding a new home for Morgan the Bobcat at the Wild Cat Sanctuary in Sandstone, Minnesota, where she eagerly joined her new best friend, Shalico, a young Canadian Lynx.

Make A Wish Foundation

The Second Annual We Promise Foundation Make-A-Wish Gala was hosted by WAVY News 10's Kerri Furey and the Master of Ceremonies or MC was Morgan Fairchild.  "It's very touching when you hear their stories. It's not just that the kids are adorable, it's the process these kids have gone through," said Morgan.  The Chartway Federal Credit Union has been raising money for Make-A-Wish with a golf tournament for 9 years now, but two years ago President Ron Burniske realized they could do more.  The group has made around 250 dreams come true. "That one moment makes them feel so normal .. forget their illnesses," said Phil Richards, Chairman of the We Promise Foundation.  With this silent auction and gala, people here hope to make even more dreams come true. Last year's gala raised $350-thousand. Organizers expect to exceed that this year.

Here are a few photos of Morgan from her trip to Virginia Beach in Sept., 2006 to do a We Promise Foundation event that supports the Make A Wish Foundation.  



Fashion House Diva Morgan Fairchild Helps At Risk Youth

 

Daniel's Dish

Just a brief social note: I recently attended the "Glass Menagerie," a lovely little benefit for GLASS (Gay and Lesbian Adolescent Social Services) in nearby West Hollywood, Calif. They help homeless and at risk gay youth with food, shelter, job training, mentorship, etc. Let's face it, not all gay folks have family as cool and understanding as my mom — some kids are rejected and abandoned by their kin just for being different. It's a sin, but it happens.

Anyway, this worthy soiree was co-hosted by that fabulous Fashion House diva, Morgan Fairchild, and out actor Chad Allen of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman fame. (FYI, Allen's best pal just happens to be soap star Heather Tom). Shawn Ryan, an adorable semi-finalist from NBC's America's Got Talent, seranaded the guests with his cabaret jazz tunes. Ultimately, the superfun event raised a much-needed $100,000 for GLASS. The only downside? I was outbid on the Gilmore Girls autographed gift set, which included a Season 6 DVD autographed by the cast, a Luke's coffee cup and a script.


At least I got a glammy pic of myself 
with Morgan Fairchild!

Hurricane Katrina

The devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina has created immediate needs for safe drinking water, shelter and food for many people living and working in Louisiana and other Gulf Coast states. Thousands of people in the region have lost their jobs, and a majority of those have been left without homes.

There are a number of organizations you can contact to help these people survive this disaster. For your convenience, we offer these links below:

 

Mercy Corps exists to alleviate suffering, poverty, and oppression by helping people build secure, productive, and just communities. Since 1979, Mercy Corps has provided more than $1 billion in assistance to 81 nations.  Mercy Corps has a long history of supporting children and helping them heal after natural disasters and other crises, both domestically and internationally

AmeriCares is a disaster relief and humanitarian aid organization providing immediate response to emergency medical needs, as well as supporting long-term humanitarian assistance programs, for all people around the world, irrespective of race, creed or political persuasion. Since last week, AmeriCares has delivered more than $1 million worth of emergency medicines, bottled water and general relief supplies to Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, with the latest shipments of medicines assisting people in Baton Rouge, Biloxi and Lafayette.
