I fell instantly in love with him...well, who wouldn't? :-)
So, as I composed the imagined emotions of sadness and happy...Wally and Winston became, and are, real to me...Thus, the story....WALLY, THE WANDERING WOMBAT
I was learning about the perils of the wombat and about the wonderful people committed and working hard to help them...My FB newsline is flooded with photos and pleas for help and heart touching stories...the likes of which I have never heard before...I knew I, also, wanted to do all I could to help them...
WALLY THE WANDERING WOMBAT read to my Wandering Wombat Cello Suite was made into a MP3 published on 6/13/14 and is available digitally thru -out the world....Now , the work really begins. Wally has to be marketed so there are proceeds produced to be given to the wombat efforts by way of Foundations and Sanctuaries in Australia. It is close to impossible for an unknown person, like myself, to make something happen...this does not mean I am not going to try....
The first thing I did was give the little audio story its own page and explain it and what the intent of it is...and then, I made it easy for people to buy it from various online places..itunes, Amazon, and several others. I then proceeded to do Twitter marketing which I still do everyday....since, I use a lot of photos to gain attention I can not use one of the auto twitters so it is manual thru-out the day and evening....
Last week an Aussie FB friend posted an Aussie radio station song request form..and I sent it in requesting the Wally story....I got to thinking....my request would certainly be deleted by the Programming Manager...but, if many many request forms were sent requesting the Wally story..perhaps they would talk about it and at the very least, play it...create some interest for it...but, it would take a lot of people...where do I find them?...then a light bulb moment...I thought of you and all the other loyal musing readers...so,....I am asking you from my heart to please take 3 min. and submit this form....they ask only for a Name and email and the song....WALLY,THE WANDERING WOMBAT..you need fill nothing else out...they will send you a thank you email and that is it....that is what happened when I did it....this will cost you nothing but 3 min and could make a major positive impact for these creatures so,I am hoping you will respond positively to my request....I believe if enough people send this ...it will cause some action....here is the link for the form:
Also, here is the link to the Wally story page for your review and consideration:
Today, 7/8/14...from a posting I did in a comment section of the Australian Geographic last evening.....I made contact with a wombat sanctuary/hospital via FB and they pledged support in their newsletters and FB page ....she also left a wonderful comment on my Aussie Geographic posting... which may encourage others to support this effort....should you be interested in viewing that posting and the Australian Geographic.....this is the link:
Please note: The sanctuaries email address has a typo...this is what caused me to find her on FB...this is their correct site address:
When I told her of the typo...she said, "so sorry, I was feeding a wombat and typing"...( I wished I was feeding that wombat:-) )...
I have many wonderful Twitter followers and if you are one of them, and see one of my tweets about the Wally story....it would have a positive impact, I think, if you could find in your heart to retweet it..
This is my Wally story up to date and why I have gone wombatty :-) . I know it seems that what I have talked about are small things needed to help....things that take little time and little or no money...it is seldom that by doing a small thing, we can make a big difference in someone's life...I fervently believe, .....this...is one of those times....
I always appreciate everyone who reads my musings....this time, I want to thank you , in advance, for any positive action you take to help these creatures...
