Today I received a call from the Humane Society of the United States. They called because I made a donation for the pets affected by Hurricane Sandy in November, which was my stepmother's birthday gift. This time they were asking for an ongoing monthly donation. Every time I get a telemarketing call asking for money, I immediately say that I'm not interested, please remove me from the list, and hang up.
This time was different. I am now looking for ways to complete my 26 acts of kindness. We recently adopted a puppy, Coco, from the Atlanta Humane Society.
I support all pet rescues and adoptions. Why not commit to a monthly donation?
I told the woman on the phone that I would commit to $10 per month. It felt really good to know that I am helping continually instead of just once.
