Another awesome sibling duo join Anitha to share their story of Kindness. Ten-year old John Paul and eight-year old Juliana founded Stuffies 4 Smiles.
What started out in 2019 as a gesture of kindness to a homeless person and their dog has grown into a movement of kindness. In the past three years, John Paul and Juliana have collected stuffed animals, books, backpacks, handmade cards for people and communities in need.
As a thank you for sharing their story, Anitha donated to Happy’s Place, a retirement home for senior dogs. This wonderful not for profit rescues senior dogs. To learn more about the work this kind group of people do, check out their website: https://www.happysplace.ca
For many homeless young people, their companion animals are often their only friend and support system. Unfortunately, most shelters do not allow animals inside. This sad truth means these youth are faced with the incredibly difficult decision—take shelter and lose their beloved companion animal or live on the streets.
In May of 2020, sisters Shania and Anya Bopa, created an organization called The Canadian Courage Project. The goal of this initiative is to keep homeless youth and their companion animals together by offering various types of support.
These two wonderful young women talk about what inspired them to create this non-profit and how they are trying to keep companion animals and youth together.
A fabulous episode about compassion for all beings.
As a thank you for sharing their story, Anitha donated to Animal Welfare Foundation of Canada. This charity seeks to change the way Canadians think about using and caring for animals used in research, agriculture, education as well as companion animals and wildlife.
