Loon Preservation Committee Partners with Eye Help Animals, LLC

DJ and I have always known that Eye Help Animals is the right thing for us.
Because we are working from our passions, the energy and excitement never wanes.

We were recently contacted by Alisoun Hodges, the Development Coordinator of the Loon Preservation Committee (  She wanted to know, “How can the Loon Preservation Committee be a part of what you’re doing?”  DJ and I immediately knew that one of who you’ll hear us refer to as “our peoplehad found us!

Whether by chance or by fate (or, as we believe, by the law of attraction) a Loon Center employee noticed someone wearing one of our Bald Eagle Wildlife Eye Collectible Pins. Out of curiosity the employee asked where this person had gotten their pin.  The individual wearing our Bald Eagle Pin (unknown to us) told the Loon Center employee about Eye Help Animals.
The Loon Center employee in turn told Alisoun about the pin and Eye Help Animals and Alisoun found us through a web search on Google.  Alisoun was astonished to learn that were also located in New Hampshire and called us.  And, the rest, as they say, is history!  After an initial telephone conversation that I had with Alisoun, DJ and I set up an appointment to meet with Alisoun and Rachel Williams at the Loon Center in Moultonborough, NH.  We related our Mission and Vision and things were set in motion for the creation of a special edition of our Wildlife Eye Collectible Pins featuring the striking eye of the Common Loon.

Although the Common Loon is not considered an endangered species on a global scale, locally, in the State of New Hampshire, it is considered threatened.

The Loon Preservation Committee has spent 35 years protecting the loon and preserving habitat in New Hampshire.  We are proud, excited, and honored to partner with a local organization that is so strongly aligned with our Mission and Vision.  Please visit to find out more about this wonderful organization and their efforts to save and protect the loon.  “Saving wildlife together! is exactly what our partnership with the Loon Preservation Committee is all about.
