I was home sick for a lot of the day on Wednesday, so I didn't have a chance to do the act of kindness I had planned. But I decided to make a donation to ARF (Animal Rescue Foundation) over the internet even though I couldn't get out of the house. ARF has recently become a very special organization to my family because we just adopted our puppy from there a couple months ago. We were so impressed with their care for the animals, not to mention the fact that they go down to the Central Valley each week and rescue animals that are within 24 hours of being put down. Making a donation to them, even though it wasn't a large sum, was important. Supporting great organizations that are doing important work for causes we care about is an act of kindness that goes a long way.
