Now more than ever, you are needed to donate your old blankets, towels, and sheets to your local animal shelter. With financial cut-backs, repairs on shelters are often put off, so if it's drafty, the animals suffer. I know my shelter uses rags to stuff under doors. No kidding! Empty out those closets... this is your chance to get rid of stuff and do something useful!

Never, never be afraid to do what's right,
if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake.
 Society's punishments are small
compared to the wounds
 we inflict on our soul
 when we look the other way.

-- Martin Luther King, Jr.
