Recently there has been a wide array of stories I have seen that I have wanted to share with you all on my blog. I have unfortunately let time get the best of me and have not been sharing these stories.
Today I am going to share a quick story about some good I have done this Christmas season.
Recently I donated to the ARL Boston’s 2012 Holiday Tree. I purchased an ornament that will hang on their first annual Boston Holiday Tree for Pets that features the adorable faces of my two loving dogs Toby and Watson (see below). The tree is located at Boston Center for the Arts on Tremont St in Boston’s South End. If you are in the neighborhood try to find the ornament with these two on it!!

I also went last week to the Animal Rescue League’s Dedham branch to drop off a couple of very for trash bags full of linen for the shelter’s guests. While it can be hard to donate money to our favorite organizations there are plenty that you can greatly assist without having to spend a dime. Simply clean out your closets! Donate old towels, sheet, blankets, sweatshirts to your local animal shelter. They utilize these items for bedding to keep the animals from having to sleep on the cold ground or metal cages. Donate old clothes, house hold items you haven’t used in years, books, etc. Many times you can schedule a pick up from a local charity or you can drop these items off at bins around town.
The simple fact is that you can help animals and people in your community with out out having to spend a dime!
What are some things you have done recently to make a difference and help out your community?
