“Never doubt that a small group of committed souls can change the world — in fact, it’s the only thing that ever has.” ~ Margaret Mead
You can’t help but be moved when you watch the video above. You don’t even need to know what it is about.
But when you do know what it is about, you will be moved to tears.
The video, created by my friend Lynn Haigh, was presented in a session at the BlogPaws conference last weekend in Columbus, OH. The video highlights efforts by individuals to bring about change in the lives of animals in need.
The “Be the Change” panel – Lynn Haigh, Pawpawty creator, Dr. V. from Pawcurious, Dorian from Your Daily Cute and Jane Harrell from Petfinder, threw out a challenge to the entire pet blogging community: Do something to change the world for pets in need, and specifically, do something to help raise funds for a designated pet charity. Pets Without Parents was selected by a prize winner at the “Be the Change” presentation.
Bloggers from all over the world are participating in this challenge. So what am I going to do?
I will be designing a T-shirt which I will put on my CafePress Shop, and all proceeds from sales of the T-shirt in the month of April and May will go to Pets Without Parents. After May, proceeds from sales of the shirt will go to my local animal charity, Friends of Stark Pound.
I have not completed the design yet, but will post it here as soon as I do.
Widgets for both organizations are in the sidebars of this blog if you wish to donate to one or both of them. Some grateful furry friends will be glad that you did!
So what will you do to be the change in your world today?
UPDATE: The T-Shirt has been designed and can be purchased in the BZTAT Studios CafePress Shop. What are you waiting for?
