The snow has melted, warm breezes swirl about, and flowering plants and trees compete for your attention. Spring…it makes everything seem so worthwhile. As we draw close to Mother’s Day on May 9, we are reminded of women who have had monumental impacts on our lives…our mothers, grandmothers, wives, daughters, sisters and countless of other women… whose love and goodness have made our lives indescribably wonderful. You probably recall that Gayle Hutchens, our Founder, was named, from thousands of nominations across the country, as a L’Oreal Paris Woman of Worth because of her work with Paws and Think. We want to pay this forward.
Who are the "Women of Worth" in your life? How will you be honoring them this year? As one option, please consider making a donation of $50 or more to Paws and Think that will support our at-risk youths, canines at risk of euthanasia, individuals with special needs or disabilities, and many others like those who are working to improve their literacy skills, going through rehabilitation following their military service to our country, and are grieving the loss of a loved one.
With your donation it will be our pleasure to send your loved one a card that informs her that you have honored her as a "Woman of Worth" in your life. And the first 100 honorees honored at the $50 or more level will receive a L’Oreal Paris lipstick with their cards. We will also feature their stories in our e-newsletter (with permission, of course).
Since our inception in October 2001, Paws and Think has helped shape the lives of over 5,000 at-risk youths, saved the lives of over 350 canines and placed 20 service dogs with individuals and facilities. Through our portfolio of programs, people in need draw hope, skills and confidence to positively embrace the future, and shelter dogs go on to live happy lives with loving families and provide lives of service. Honoring a "Woman of Worth" in your life by making a gift to Paws and Think is a beautiful way to say thank you.
