National Random Acts of Kindness Day is February 17. To celebrate, I’m donating a copy of MattieDog Gets Adopted to my local elementary school library and the public library in my town. This book features the story of one my favorite blogging pals, Mattiedog and the artwork of my friend, Carolynn Lemke. Carolynn has a custom pet portrait business, Noble Friends and is also a graphic designer. Thanks to my sister, Alice G Patterson, for the photos!
Besides a terrific (true) story and adorable illustrations, this book is perfect to give or receive because the proceeds go to help animal rescue and adoption.
Another great project (although not pet related) is Books For Africa.
If donating a book isn’t your thing, then you might want to consider dropping something off at a shelter. In addition to money, rescue organizations and shelters usually need fosters, volunteers, toys, pet food, treats, towels, office and cleaning supplies. You can find some more suggestions on my Animal Shelter Donation board on Pinterest.
In my opinion, one of the best things about random acts of kindness is that they can happen at any time! And you can choose someone randomly, or you can choose someone individually.
If you prefer to perform a random act of kindness for someone you know, I’m sure it will be appreciated. Personally, I ‘d love one of these mugs from Noble Friends.
Don’t forget to give your own pets a random act of kindness whether it is an extra long walk, a game of tug, belly rubs or their favorite treat.
We’d love to hear about a random act of kindness that you have experienced!
This week I’m joining the Wordless Wednesday blog hop hosted by BlogPaws, be sure to follow the link and see lots of awesome pets!
