Today’s suggestion comes from our founder, Betsy! When Joan was talking about our planning for this promotion, Betsy suggested that people could treat themselves to new blankets and towels and then donate the old ones to their local shelter! Sometimes, doing good for others can be an excuse to do good for ourselves.
Dogs and cats don’t care if the towels and blankets have little holes or tiny stains, the way that people would, so it’s a great way to make sure you’re able to give to both human and animal shelters at the same time. I personally have a hard time convincing myself to buy new sheets and towels. I’m not sure why, but I always have a hard time justifying home indulgences for myself. Knowing that I’m not only doing a favor for myself ( but also freeing my old sheets and towels to help pets in need — that makes it easier. Not only will I get to enjoy the warm fuzziness of new towels, but I’ll have the warm fuzzies in my heart of knowing I’ve helped keep pets comfortable and warm.
Will you be taking advantage of sales and treating yourself to new towels and blankets? Let us know by taking the pledge to help pets and getting a chance to win for yourself and your favorite adoption group!
