It's not about bowling... it's about helping kids!
A Message From Rick B Rhodes
Without the help of the Medicine River Wildlife Centre over 1600 injured or orphaned wild animals per year would have no one to help them. For 30 years the Centre has been there to help and now they need our help. Please come with me to help build a much needed new hospital.

Trustees are the people in charge of a charity. They play a vital role, volunteering their time and working together to make important decisions about the charity's work. Trustees Week is an annual event to showcase the great work that trustees do and highlight opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference. Trustees Week 2012 is 5 - 11 November and this website will be regularly updated with news and information in the Bowl up to the week.
In times of conflict, famine or disaster, we are quick to provide emergency assistance. SOS Children played a pivotal role in helping Pakistan earthquake victims (SOS Children was named as the official custodian of all unaccompanied children by Kashmir authorities) and continues its work in ongoing conflict zones in countries such as Zimbabwe, the DR of Congo and Somalia.
When the Dalai Lama said that we were a charity where deeds speak louder than words doubtless he knew there are lots of ways to choose a particular charity (for example through which to sponsor a child). Some people choose charities based on the charity's presence giving opinions on the news, the charity's TV or newspaper adverts or the mail the charity sends. These people aren't wrong, but we are not that kind of charity; we build families not headlines. We get on with giving the least fortunate of children a chance of a proper family life. People find us and it is by our deeds that we think they should judge us.
