Great Article about Help with Vet Bills for Low Income Pet Owners

I just read a great article on Itchmo – a blog I check frequently for interesting pet stories. The author did some good research on some of the opportunities out there for people who need financial help with their vet bills. If you or someone you know is in need of help, or even just interested in helping organizations like these to raise funds for low income pet owners in need,check out this link: News for cats and dogs – Help for Low-Income Pets

This week is World Water Week! Check out the Tap Project

india_2.jpgWhoops! I’m coming in a bit late on this one, but there’s still time! From March 16th through Saturday March 22nd, The Tap Project (a UNICEF-founded project that started in NYC and now has spread to other cities across the nation) invites people to dine out at participating restaurants and donate as little as $1 for their glass of water. Money raised goes to providing safe drinking water to children in developing nations. Check out the website for the Tap Project and click on “restaurants” to see the cities and their participating restaurants. You can also donate on that website. One great thing to do even if you don’t plan on dining out: get this website into the hands of your favorite restaurant, and encourage them to participate next year.

For every dollar raised a child will have 40 days of safe drinking water. Having just done a posting on our country’s bottled water habit, I feel like this could be a bit of a way to make up for our wasteful ways. Being conscious of wastefulness when other people don’t have the luxury of being wasteful with their resources is a big step in the right direction for creating a sustainable lifestyle, don’t you agree?
