I watched a little doggie die on a heap of trash in India, many years ago. I will never forget that dog. I caressed it and cried my eyes out. But, before the light in his eyes grew dim, he saw and felt my Love. And I was forever changed.
EVERY ACTION OF OUR LIVES TOUCHES ON SOME CHORD THAT WILL VIBRATE IN ETERNITY.
When we help those who suffer, we may never know the results, but one thing is sure: We are making this world a better place - and I wanna be part of it.
TODAY I DECIDED IT’S GONNA BE A GREAT DAY... SO FAR I HAVE:
-Helped protect 11.4 square feet of rainforest habitat for wildlife.
-Given 1.1 cups of food to the hungry.
-Helped another woman in need get a free mammogram.
-Given .6 bowls of food for rescued animals.
-Helped a homeless and hungry veteran get a free meal.
-Helped provide therapy for children living with autism and their families.
-Helped a child with lifesaving health care.
-Helped give a child in need a book to read and treasure.
YOU MAY THINK FINN’S BEEN REAL BUSY – LOL! NOOOPE. TOOK ME 19 MOUSE CLICKS AND 43 SECONDS TO DO ALL THE ABOVE HERE:
There are 8 small buttons above the green “Click Here to Give - it’s FREE” - button:
Hunger, Breast Cancer, Animals, Veterans, Autism, Child Health, Literacy, Rainforest.
WHY CLICK? Because of this story:
A man walked along the shore scattered with thousands of starfish, beached and dying after a storm. A young boy was picking them up, one by one, and throwing them back into the ocean. "Why bother?" asked the man. "You're not saving enough to make a difference". The boy picked up another starfish and sent it spinning back into the water. "Made a difference to that one", he replied.

My old blog had a plea for passing the word around on behalf of two senior dogs, MAX & JOHNNY, who needed a home. Thank you, all you angels, who cared and shared their story. I GOT GREAT NEWS TODAY...
A wonderful lady adopted them both! Now they are happy, running and playing with her young puppy on a green lawn. This made my day, my week, my month... and will be one of the best news of this YEAR OF THE DRAGON!
THERE ARE ANGELS AMONG US - DISGUISED AS "NORMAL" PEOPLE... They care, they make things happen. They save lives. Like PORTLIGHT. Check them to see how they do it - THEY ROCK!
Life is precious and laughter prolongs life. Here are a couple of timeless "pearls"...
THANK YOU FOR VISITING - YOUR COMMENTS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!
