Issue #037, April 18, 2020.
In this Issue:
1) The 2020 Hummingbird Migration Update.
Message from Ruth & Jim:
This is a very concerning time in our society. Our hearts go out to everyone now being impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
At The Hummingbird Guide, our resolute first priority continues to be the health and safety of our customers and our distributor team. Our distributor is operating with a limited staff to protect their team and as a result shipments are going out but at a slower rate than normal. We appreciate your patience and support.In Native American Culture, hummingbirds are seen as Healers and Messangers of Love,
Good Luck and Joy.
They also symbolize courage and resilience because of their long migration.
We hope your hummingbirds bring some comfort and distraction from these trying times.
No Flights Have Been Cancelled!
The Hummingbirds are Getting Close!
