I ran across The Animal Rescue Site, several years ago, where I found that I could donate .6 cans of pet food per day, simply by visiting the site and clicking a button. At the rate of one click per day, that amounts to 219 cans of food a year. Since I always click twice, once in memory of my mom, the annual total grows to 438 cans, which is more than my two cats eat in a year.
There is also a tab on this page, headed “Rainforest”. Each click there helps protect 11.4 square feet of rainforest habitat for wildlife. Since, again, I click twice each day, this amounts to 8,322 square feet in a year’s time, or almost exactly one-fifth of an acre.
Taken on their own .6 and 11.4 seem painfully small portions, perhaps not worth your time, but 438 cans and a fifth of an acre are much more impressive. Add in four more people, clicking twice on each site each day, and in a year that grows to 2,190 cans of food and an acre of rainforest. By standing together, pooling our efforts, we can make a change. We can make a difference by doing our small part, and by adding it to the small changes others are making. I’ll probably never see my face added to Mount Rushmore, or stand in the spotlight to accept an award, but I’m perfectly happy to make a small effort every day to help those who need our protection and our friendship.
I have included separate links to each location which I hope you will bookmark and visit faithfully. You have my thanks and appreciation in advance, and I thank you for those who cannot speak for themselves.
