This House LOVES the Gentle Barn
Meet Stanley. Stanley is just one among many adorable residents of the Gentle Barn. If you haven't heard of them, please visit their website. I guarantee the stories will knock your socks off! I can only hope and pray that I am one day fortunate enough to impact the lives of even a fraction of the animals the Gentle Barn has!
We are sponsoring Stanley for just $10/month! I don't drink Starbucks, but if I did, I would only have to give up 2, yes, only TWO trips per month. I had resolved anyway to give up soft drinks, so Stanley gets to be the benefactor of that. (Also, I told B this was a more than sufficient Valentine's Day gift for me). I challenge all of my followers, readers, visitors, whatever to find something about which you are passionate and vow to make a difference somehow in 2011!
"To my mind the life of a lamb is no less precious than that of a human being. I should be unwilling to take the life of a lamb for the sake of the human body. I hold that, the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of man." - Mahatma Gandhi
