March 1st and it is time for Comments for a Cause once again. Whew- the month flew by and while a lot of my readers are probably still digging out from the massive snowfalls I am seeing signs of spring everywhere. It’s coming, folks. Keep the faith.
This past month I was thrilled to be able to highlight a local charity, PAWS (Pisgah Animal Welfare Society). PAWS is a wonderful local agency that helps improve the lives of animals through compassion, care and community involvement. They make a huge difference in our area and save many animals from kill shelters . One of my favorite programs that they support is the Barn Cat program where they take feral cats and rehome them in appropriate places. Feral cats are not always appreciated and their programs help them to find their best lives in the best places.
I recently found out that PAWS will soon be opening a Cat Cafe in Brevard and I am so excited about that. The place will be a great place for animal lovers to hang out with kitties that are available for adoption and as I understand it there will also be an outside area for dog adoptions. Wonderful news for animal lovers, don’t you think?
I am thrilled that thanks to comments on the blog this month Chris and I will be making a donation of $130 to PAWS to memory of our sweet Buddy to help with their efforts in our area. Thanks to them for all that they do.
I decided to select Folds of Honor for my charity for the month of March 2019. Folds of Honor has a 4 star Charity Navigator rating which makes me know that this organization that was founded in 2007 is one that is doing a good job.
Their motto says it all: Honor Their Sacrifice. Educate Their Legacy. The mission of this organization is to provide educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service-members. What a wonderful gift this is to those recipients.
To view some of the statistics that Folds of Honor is proud to share please click here.
Their website is full of facts and information about the families that receive the scholarships and their stories. You will definitely want to check it out and share in some of the amazing stories that are found there.
This month please stop by It’s Just Life often and read and leave a comment. Comments for a Cause is a very simple way to support a charity. For each comment made on any blog post during March 2019 Chris and I will make a donation of 50 cents to Folds of Honor (cap of $500) . We are happy to be able to do this and count ourselves blessed to be able to share some of these charities with my readers. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your presence here and continued support since April 2011 of Comments for a Cause. Without you, my readers, we would not be raising awareness for so many great organizations.
