Today, I have a special guest post from my dog, Scooter -

When my family feeds me, I know I’m special. I don’t kid myself though, I know that there are people who go to bed hungry each night in this country. I know that if I were hungry and saw this, I’d be very sad.

I wanted to make sure that my friends all tell their families about a special group of people that are raising money to help feed those who don’t have enough to eat. It’s called Walk For Hunger and if you click on the link it will take you to a family friend’s page where Stephanie is helping to fight hunger. Her team’s name is Tired Dogs which is what made me think that even though I am just a puppy, I can help too. I asked my family to set aside a few dollars each week when they buy me food. Now, they have money they’d like to donate to this cause, and to help make this money go even further, they’re going to offer a matching challenge -

Before going to bed last night, they saw how much the Tired Dogs have raised so far and it was $545. Next Sunday night, they will check the total again and match up to $250 of the money you donated this week. So, when you read this, just be as generous as you can, and your donation will be matched this week. After all, I hope that we treat other people at least as well as we treat me, and I know I’m never hungry!

    [...] I think such ratios are arbitrary. Baby Brown will go to preschool (?) soon enough, and you’ll see a $16K windfall until the years when after school activities start to cost a small fortune. Try paying for a teen’s 12 dance classes (yes, 12 per week). But, the first few school years you’ll be well under the 50% and that will make up for it now. If you are comfortable the real estate deal looks cash positive, I’d go for it. – Joe [...]
