This is going to be quick, because explaining what today’s “Be the Change” challenge is all about is better left to BlogPaws, the organization where it all started. And also because I want others to know that even if they’re busy and broke — guilty on both counts! — they can still help.
First, there’s that widget you can see to the right of this post — even above Frankie’s video trailer. You can put it on your blog, too — I pulled the code from DogSpelledForward’s site — and urge people to give.
And then you can think about something you’ve done or are planning to do to help animals, even if you don’t have much money.
Me, I’m going to start by donating the swag I got at the BlogPaws conference — plus some I solicited directly from the companies — to a silent auction to benefit the Humane Society of Southern Arizona. In addition to the deluxe FURminator, pictured here, my grooming basket will include the FURminator deshedding solution and the Crikey Pawsitively Clean Foaming Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner.
Along, of course, with a copy of Am I Boring My Dog. I’m hoping that the person who bids for the gift basket will love the book and spread the word.
Who says you can’t do yourself good by doing good?
