Review for Purrfect Pals, Arlington, WA, USA
I first have to tell you that no one asked me to write this review.
My family and I recently relocated to Arlington, WA. I wanted my 10 year old children to experience the joys of long term volunteering so I signed us up to feed shelter cats one day a week. We signed up with Purrfect Pals, the oldest no-kill cat shelter in the area. The more I have gotten to know Purrfect Pals, the more highly I think of them. This organization has been around, thanks to the auspices of one woman, since 1988 and over 27 thousand cats have been adopted. No cat, whether adoptable or not, is unwanted. All all cared for and every adoption is celebrated. What more can I say about an organization that holds a birthday party (with smelly wet cat food birthday cakes) for their leukemia cats each year?
Please support this organization and their hard work. If you can't adopt a cat, please virtually adopt one. Send money in for a cat that can't be adopted and know that you are helping, one animal at a time. If you'd like to learn more, please check out their website at www.purrfectpals.org.
Thanks for reading,
Review for The Office of Letters and Light, Berkeley, CA, USA
Last October I was challenged by a friend to participate in the NaNoWriMo event in November. I screwed up my courage and wrote a 50,000 word novel for the sheer joy of writing. In the throws of my creative excitement, I submitted some query letters for a novel I had already completed. Amazingly enough, I received a response three weeks ago from my query. I would not have had the commitment to submit a query, much less write an unedited book without the support of The Office of Letters and Light. Will I consider looking toward publishers for my novels? Yes. Will I participate in next year's NaNoWriMo? You had better believe it. A wonderful organization, a wonderful experience that gave me the faith to continue to write. I thank them.
