If you’ve been following my blog then you know each year before Christmas I buy a few hundred dog and cat toys, treats, etc… and go to the DC Humane society. I go and volunteer because it not only makes me feel good, but the animals need the extra love and care. They also have a very good chance at getting adopted during the holidays and happy dogs and cats have a better chance.
I met Frost “Mrs. Claws” at one of their adoptions and found a new best friend. Frost is one of the things that makes me happy to be alive, helps me to stay calm and happy and is one of the reasons I am able to remain calm and run a business. Below you’ll find a few videos of some of the amazing animals that could use your love and attention (and donations)…but that isn’t the point of this post.
The point of this post is that if you haven’t done at least one good thing or something for someone else each month, or even this year, you have one week left to make 2014 matter for someone but yourself. I’m not talking about something that someone asked you to do, something you took time out of your day for, something you did but weren’t asked or something that was unexpected and made someone or something know people still care.
If you didn’t do a 5K to support a charity, help a disabled person get something off the shelf at a store if you saw them struggling or even smile to an elderly person who looks alone or abandoned and then listen and to them talk, it’s not too late.
Below are some videos of best friends you can take home from the DC Humane Society as well as a few ideas and things that you can still do this year to make a difference for someone else in this world. You can whine and complain all you want about the world not being fair on Facebook or Twitter, but that does nothing except try to get yourself attention. Here are 10 things you can do to make this world a better place.
