I can’t believe that it’s this time of the year again…almost seems like 2011 flew right by! I’ve had an amazing year, probably one of my favorite years of all time : ) Every day I feel so blessed and fortunate to be where I am in my life and to have the kind of happiness that I cherish constantly!
This year for the holidays, I don’t want the usual things off of my Amazon wish list…I know, can you believe it? Not that I don’t love getting gifts from my fans, it makes me feel special and appreciated. But this year I want something different…
Michigan is one of the states that has been hit the hardest by the bad economy. I see it every single day, more houses lie vacant, small businesses close up shop, people lose their jobs. And when this all happens, many people decide they can’t keep their companion animals any longer and as a result, the shelters are over flowing with unwanted pets. I had the chance to save one of these unwanted pets…little Ziggy…we adopted him almost 3 months ago and in that short time, he’s changed my life. He’s become a best friend to Phyllis and such a companion to me and put some spunk back into his house! When I learned last week that my local shelter’s budget had been cut in HALF, I decided I wanted to do something to help. The Huron Valley Humane Society is the best shelter in Michigan with the highest save rate, I wish they were a no kill shelter but they very rarely have to euthanize. So I started ” Maggie’s Second Chance Fund “, a fund that will go directly to this wonderful shelter to help the animals in need. I believe every animal deserves a second chance to find a loving home that will take care of them for the rest of their lives. That’s the commitment that I made to both of my dogs and I want to see it happen for so many more deserving animals!

No matter how small, every bit helps, trust me! If you make a donation, please let me know and I’ll send you a thank you gift!! This is very important to me and I really want to raise some money for this wonderful organization. I am also going to be auctioning off items periodically on abibids.com and donating the proceeds to this fund so keep your eye open for that. Thank you so much for reading this and I am hoping that maybe some of you will open your hearts this holiday season and beyond! If you’ve ever considered adopting a pet, do it! It’s an amazing feeling to know you’ve saved a life : )
