It's my Birthday a week today

but I don't want birthday presents what I would like is for people to donate money to Farm Sanctuary.
Farm Sanctuary
Mission: Rescue - Education - Advocacy

Farm Sanctuary was founded in 1986 to combat the abuses of industrialized farming and to encourage a new awareness and understanding about "farm animals." At Farm Sanctuary, these animals are our friends, not our food. When Farm Sanctuary's investigative and advocacy campaigns uncover cruelty at factory farms, stockyards and slaughterhouses, our Emergency Rescue Team helps bring the animals to safety. At our 175-acre shelter in upstate New York and 300-acre shelter in northern California, Farm Sanctuary provides lifelong care and rehabilitation to farm animals rescued from cruelty and neglect. By opening our barn doors to guests at our New York and California shelters, Farm Sanctuary provides visitors with the unique experience of seeing the world through the eyes of farm animals. A shelter tour enables individuals to understand the abysmal realities of today's factory farming conditions. After coming face to face with a rescued chicken, nuzzling up to a gentle cow and rubbing a grateful pig's belly, many Farm Sanctuary visitors are forever changed. Farm animals are specifically excluded from most state anti-cruelty laws and from the federal Animal Welfare Act. But we are working to change that. Since incorporating in 1986, Farm Sanctuary has campaigned relentlessly to prevent cruelty, and to encourage legal and policy reforms that promote respect and compassion for farm animals. We have initiated groundbreaking prosecutions and precedent-setting litigation, and we have passed the first U.S. laws to prohibit inhumane factory farming practices. Our field investigations have turned up shocking cruelties, which have riled citizens and led to reforms

I've chosen this cause as they do so much to help animals with not just re-homing some animals but giving the care and attention various farm animals need when they first arrive at the sanctuary. They also advocate for better living conditions for animals to live in as well as educate about how we can make a difference not only to ourselfs or animals but for the environment by having 1 meat-free day a week.
I'd love for you to donate $10 but even $1 will make a difference to these animals.

You can donate directly on the Farm Sanctuary website http://www.farmsanctuary.org/ their minimum donation there is $20 but if you can't afford that and are on facebook you can donate anything from $1 to $100 (that's my target to reach $100 to give to Farm Sanctuary for my birthday) http://apps.facebook.com/causes/birthdays/134183?m=5fab03c9&ref=mf

I don't have money for donations. I didn't back in 2001, either, and believe me when I tell you that really killed me!

Anyway, all I can do is give you birthday wishes for a day spent how you like with whom you like! *love and hugs*
