As Alycia mentioned in Looking for that last minute gift, posted before Christmas, we enjoy sponsoring animals through the Best Friends Animal Society or otherwise including charitable donations made in the names of recipients as part of gift giving. For the past several years we’ve sponsored dogs, printed a picture of the dog from the Best Friends website and included it with their care package in the mail.
This year though Alycia and I realized that there are animals other than dogs at Best Friends that you can sponsor, including rescued farm animals. Did we sponsor a jackass in my Dad’s name? Well technically no since jackasses are only male, asses are female, this ass/donkey was named Jenny, so she wasn't a jackass.
But from a big picture perspective, did we sponsor a jackass in my Dad’s name this Christmas? Yes. Yes we did. Merry Christmas Dad!!
