Small Hero Challenge!
Searching for Liberty wants us to do something to help people this Christmas season. Great idea! At work we have sponsored a family this Christmas. We fill up a basket or three with food and gifts. It's too bad we only seem to be concerned with those families at Christmas and not all year round.
I have the best "small heroes" around. Anyone who reads my blog knows that my family is a foster home for service dogs in training. We have done this for over 8 years, and many very special dogs have passed through our lives, and hopefully many more will grace our home with their barks, yelps and whines at 2 in the morning!
Dogs With Wings really struggles to get donations while organizations are pouring MILLIONS of dollars into the fake climate change debate. If those same organizations gave Dogs With Wings just 1 million, that would set them up for 20 years and hundreds of people in need of an assistance dog would lead better lives.
Does the Suzuki Foundation deserve a million dollar donation? What does the Suzuki Foundation actually do? I know what the assistance dogs do, what does the Suzuki Foundation do to help a poor person? Do they plant trees? Do they physically help preserve any land, air or water? Do they go to Haiti to help rebuild the country? Seriously, what do all the environmental charities actually do? Have they saved a polar bear from drowning? (joke) Have they cleaned up China's polluted air? (no joke) All I see is them basking in the warm Mexican sun at a two week conference, that accomplishes nothing and helps no one. University activists getting a free trip to a two week party, paid for by taxpayers. The money spent by those activists could have sponsored HUNDREDS of assistance dogs for the handicapped.
Think about it. Which charity is more deserving of your donation? Dogs With Wings or the Suzuki Foundation? My money goes to Dogs With Wings, so the dogs can fly to help people who need them. Thank goodness for the charities that actually help people.
