WGRZ reports, "The Appalachian Wildlife Refuge, a North Carolina based non-profit organization, is asking folks to donate their mascara wands rather than throw them away. They use the wands to help orphaned and injured wild animals."

The wands are used to gently remove things that could be dangerous to animals from their fur, like "dirt, grind, ticks and fly larva."

You can donate your wands at this link.
