While paying bills this morning, I suddenly remembered that I'd put something on my New Years resolutions list to start doing this year.
I wanted to start making a small donation to an animal organization each month. I've been putting this off for months and months now, and though my intentions are good, when it comes to the end of the month, there always seems to be another excuse for not having the money. Either there's something urgent that must be bought, or something needs to get fixed, or it's just being spent on going out. This morning I decided this just isn't good enough anymore, enough is enough.
If I can afford to go out for coffee with a friend in the middle of the month, or get take aways for supper on the odd occasion when I don't feel like cooking - I can surely afford to spend the same amount on a worthy cause at the beginning of the month, right? Right. It's not so hard once you stop making excuses, every little bit helps - even if it's only R50 a month, it's something and it's for a good cause.
Here are the two animal organizations I've chosen this month to support.
I wish I could support them all. Maybe one day if I win the lottery. For now, it's going to have to be two a month.
Wet Nose Animal Rescue Centre
PETS - Pet Empowerment in the Townships
P.S Couldn't resist putting these on...enjoy! :)
