Merry Christmas everyone!
Greetings from snowy Nebraska! We are visiting my family this year for the holidays and I get to enjoy a light dusting of snow as I write some today! My wife and I always want to see a White Christmas when we visit my family. This year we were lucky enough to enjoy a White Christmas without any of the travel problems of a major snow storm.
As that famous song states, "It's the most wonderful time of the year!" Christmas has always been my favorite seasons for so many reasons and as I get older I enjoy giving more than receiving. I enjoying the surprise that comes with finding something for somebody and being excited to see the look on their face when they open their presents.
The excitement of giving somebody something they may need or even something they don't need but want is part of this season. It is fun to see the look on their face as they open their gift. In a similar way, Christmas is a great season to give to special causes that are important to you.
Earlier this month, I received an e-mail with the following proposition:
Due to my day job, I did not respond fast enough and I was not one of the 20 bloggers to receive the $100 to do good, but I did receive this e-mail from Rockstar Finance in response:
I shared this opportunity with my wife and we agreed to use $100 to donate to a cause and person that was important to us. We decided to give the $100 to one of my co-workers as a way to help support her efforts to bring 5 dogs abandoned dogs in Puerto Rico to Texas.
These 5 dogs were left behind by their family after the dreaded Hurricane Maria hit the island. My co-worker paid for vet bills, plane tickets and multiple other items to get these dogs from Puerto Rico to a new home in Texas.
We offered our home up to foster one dog and decided that we could be more help with this donation. She had been asking for donations on GroupMe, but we had not taken the time to offer up a donation. This e-mail from Rockstar Finance and J. Money was just the motivation I needed to finally offer up some money for these forgotten dogs. Below is a picture of our rescued dog that we are currently fostering.
There are four other dogs that made the flight to Texas and have a new opportunity of life here in America. My co-worker told me that the shelters in Puerto Rico only give 72 hours before their euthanize an animal. My co-worker just couldn't let this happen and saved 5 lives.
Both my wife an I are dog lovers and felt this was a great cause to give. My co-worker was very thankful and excited to receive some financial help for this process. What causes have you supported this holiday season? What people did you help?
