Thanks very much for trying to help. In many ways it can seem like a drop in the ocean, as there are so many nonhuman animals that have already perished, but those few that you can salvage should be grateful. <3

Laura Leonard you’re famous 😎😂

Ohhhhhh that is sooooo awesome !!!! I started a koala box at work to. This makes me so happy ♥️

This is great. Sooo wonderful and well done💕Would also be great to consider developing countries where in some cases only choice is to reinsert used equipment with risk of introducing HIV. Donated expired unused equipment a much better option. Could send with those volunteering overseas.

This is fantastic ❤️ Well done, Metro North HHS!

Brilliant effort Lex! 👏 You're so thoughtful

Great work to all.

Great work Metro North!

Love this so much! What a great idea!

I have more to give. I'm at TPCH. Who do we give them to? I have giving sets, large plastic bowls, kidney dish sets etc

That is so good.🐈🐕🐴☺️

Thanks for doing a bit to save the animals. That's the area I work in.

Great work team

Great work.

Great to see!

Onya Lexie your a Champ
