Give of Yourself (From Janet)
If you advocate for animals, chances are your e-mail and regular mail boxes are full of requests to “save a life” by donating money.
Like everything else, requests to donate money ebb and flow depending on what’s trending, the time of year and what is needed.
Money IS a very necessary means to an end when it comes to funding for animal based support systems.
But (BUT), money isn’t everything.
To donate literally means to give.
Think about that.
It doesn’t matter that your checkbook balance will not allow you to send money on behalf of an animal in need. It’s a shame that so many feel that the only way they are TRULY making a difference is to send money, because they are closing the door on other opportunities to help and support.
Here’s a simple and surefire way to donate: You can give of yourself.
Every person has something of themselves that they can give to make a difference in the life of an animal in need.
Of course, excuses are easy to come by if you don’t want to donate, period. So whether or not you have the money to write that check then becomes moot. But, oh, how wonderful if you WANT to donate but you just can’t financially. Because that opens up so many other imaginative and creative ways to give of yourself instead.
