Adoption/ Fostering/Giving is so Rewarding!

I just wanted to write a brief blog about the need for  adoption and fostering needy animals. Everyone should consider adoption and/or fostering at least once in their life. I have fostered countless animals -saving hundreds of lives plus I contribute to local rescues through donations of clean used towels, new pet food, etc. Everyone should contribute on a regular basis to help needy animals and children whether it be through active volunteering or giving much needed donations. Contact your local rescues to see how you can help them.
I also drop off new toys every year to a local charity for parents unable to make their kids' wishes. Last year, we donated two new bikes to the Salvation Army. I called to see if there were any needy families that could use them and they even came to pick them up for us at our home. I got the bikes on sale at Toys R us for only $35 each- both assembled too. I am not rich but I believe as long as I give to those less fortunate I shall always receive. I have been this way since a child and have yet to go a day without food like some ppl have to. I worked at a shelter for abused children one summer when I was in my early twenties and was surprised to find that a lot of the children never had a bike of their own. When I was a little girl my bike was like my car is today- a necessity for transportation.
So, please put some money away now so you too can do your part this year to make someone or some rescue a little happier/bearable. The best part is, you don't know the recipients and they don't know you- u just do it bc it is the right thing to do. You will be far happier too.
