"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."

Welcome to

Feel GooFriday!!!

Erika had found that a lot of her bloggy friends reading posts about being positive, so she thought she might try her very own meme. She just wanted everyone to feel good and have some happy thoughts as you begin the weekend.  Go over to her blog for the details.

What made me Feel Goothis week.

I do most of my shopping online and this past Christmas I found a really great site that not only has quality merchandise at great prices but a portion of what you pay goes to charity.  There are tabs for six different types of merchandise and each tab relates to a different type of charity.

Together they are called THE GREATER GOOD NETWORK and have given over 20 million dollars to charity since 1999.

I have to say most of my purchases benefited Animal Rescue. 

The Animal Rescue Site provides food and care for tens of thousands of animals rescued by shelters each year.  They also have a Pass the Paw Campaign on Facebook and an icon you can put on your blog for people to click everyday and with each click  sponsors give money for food and care.  If you purchase anything from this site it will show right on your order how many bowls of food your purchase provided.  

I also purchased these beautiful bookmarks from the Literacy site to add something special to a few of my giveaways. With each item purchased, shoppers generate funds for free books for children in need. 

You will find the live click buttons in my right sidebar and you can even sign up for daily emails to remind you to click. They even have an application for your cell phone. I hope you will consider adding the icons to your blogs or signing up for the emails.  That way you can click everyday to help the charities of your choice and 
Feel Goo
everyday knowing you are helping others.  Be sure to check out the merchandise too, my kids loved the "purrfect pawed" gifts!!

I can't wait to read about what made you
Feel Good this week!!

We have a grandson that has been ill for several days and he was able to return to school on Wednesday. So that made me feel good about his recovery. Secondly, I was called this week to help with ADA (American Diabetes Association) spring fund drive. I help every year and they are doing things a bit different this year with a special mailing that I will get to mail out to everyone on my block. I should be getting the promotional material in the next few weeks. Last thing I promise ... I had a good week this week because Christ was with me every day! Hope everyone has a GREAT week!

What a good idea. I've been wanting to improve the thought behind my gifts. I'll look into these.
Thanks for your comment. It was such a joy to expose someone to a book they love. I guess that is part of why you do book reviews? I love escaping.

I love those mugs! I love mugs in general. Plus they support a good cause. I love that.

Have a happy week!

Stay warm!

Hey Lori! I love the cups and I love the Hunger site with the clicks to donate! I get the reminders each day.
Nice bookmarks too.
Now - I was happy this week to get our new puppy (pics to come soon). Plus I got caught up some more at work which is good. :-)
