A Gift For Patrick Day was on Friday, April 15, 2011. It coincided with The Day of Silence. I recognized both. You can find out more about Patrick by reading this or watching my video post. For A Gift For Patrick Day you can do something to help animals in honor of him. Luckily this day was near my Birthday and I received a lot of birthday money in the past few days. I started out with 25 dollars that I was ready to donate to Mariah's Promise, a Pit Bull sanctuary that had a lot of construction to do to prevent being shut down. Then, over the weekend, I was given a lot more money. I decided I would donate 50% of my birthday money to Mariah's Promise. I ended up with $250, which means I am giving Mariah's Promise $125!! I am very excited for them and hope all goes well!! I also can't wait to visit the sanctuary in the near future.
It's not too late. If you didn't do anything in honor of Patrick yet, you still can. There are many animals and shelters that need your help. I know that things are tough right now for many people (my Mom reminds me ALL the time!) so instead of cash, maybe you have some old blankets or other items that are on a nearby shelters wish list. Every shelter has a wish list. Maybe you can make some of those wishes come true!
