It feels good to give back. We try to do little things. Like using reusable bags at the grocery (yup, we do each time), participating in charity walks, saying yes to the extra $1 at the market, volunteering for non-profits, switching to CFL lightbulbs and donating old clothes and household items.
One of my favorite traditions are Hunter and Sydney’s annual birthday gifts. Each year on their birthday, we make a donation in their honor to the French Bulldog Rescue Network, a national organization dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing Frenchies. We’ll forever make these donations to celebrate our past, present and future pig’s birthdays.
It’s not birthday time but we recently made two donations to the FBRN – one for an adorable foster Frenchie with a toe-nibbling addiction (it only seemed fitting) and another in loving memory of Miss Syd that will forever stay on the Memorial & Tribute wall.
