Remembering Animals In Need This Holiday

This year, my lovely daughter will give a different Christmas gift to the young children in the family (her 2 brothers' children, a little girl in one family, two little boys in the other). Instead of books or toys, she is paying for a year's subscription each, to sponsor a donkey in a donkey shelter near her. The shelter cares for lost, injured, abused and unwanted donkeys, and receives no government funding, just relies on the kindness of people.


The children will get a picture of their own donkey, name and age, a newsletter and can visit their donkey any time they want to. There are so many animals in need. Perhaps somewhere in your area, there is something you too can do. Not necessarily donkeys, of course:; cats, dogs, horses, you name it.

Before we become concerned about needy animals in our area, we should make sure that all the needy people are helped. People in need are far more important.

You are right, Nellio, and I do. I work part-time as a community out reach worker and also contribute to 'people'charities, arthritis, diabetes, cancer council, and so on.


But animals/birds/ are co-tenants of our planet and need to be respected and looked after too.

I think that is wonderful! Animals are God's creatures, also. He put them here for us to take care of, and your daughter is to be commended for thinking of them. Thanks for sharing, and God bless you.
