Thank you veterans! Here’s a way to help homeless vets and their pets

Thank you veterans! Here’s a way to help homeless vets and their pets

The Greater Good network reports that over 1/2 million are homeless in the United States. 15% of these homeless are our Veteran’s. To many people – homeless our not – pets are our truest friends.  Unfortunately, homesless shelters rarely accomodate animals – keeping homeless veteran’s with pets out of shelters that provide safety, shelter and nurishment.

GreaterGood.org is working to change this. Their program Safe Haven in Philadelphia will be the first housing in the city for homeless vets that accomodates pets. You can help simply by clicking on the link at greatergood.org/project

Or donate directly to the program. Help keep our veterans and their pets stay out of the cold.

 

Gardeners Supply Pledges Food for Hungry Americans

Gardeners Supply Pledges Food for Hungry Americans

It’s nice to see companies following through with company ideals. Gardeners Supply https://www.gardeners.com not only sells everything a gardener might need, they also believe in giving back to the community through a variety of good works.  They donate 8 percent of profits to programs that use gardening for good. They also have turned a piece of land that had been treated as a dumping ground and created a garden that produces 500,00 pounds of produce annually.  They’ve pledged to donate food from their farm to help feed hungry Americans. And they are challenging gardeners everywhere to join them by donating their extra produce to food banks etc. through their #gardentogive project.
