This is a small footnote to my previous post. Jane’s post reminded me I’ve been meaning to sponsor a donkey from The Donkey Sanctuary. I usually donate to a few institutions I support throughout the year (and also make an appointment to donate blood on my birthday), and I’ve added The Donkey Sanctuary to this list. I sponsored Apollo today, a handsome chap whose story melted my heart:
My Kobi was also mistreated before he was rescued as a kitten by the fine people at SAFE Perth. They too welcome donations, and also have many animals ready to be adopted.
I also support Anti-Slavery Australia and Yad Vashem (amongst others).
Once again, happy holidays, and Merry Christmas. Hanukkah has been lovely, and I’ve been invited by friends to a Christmas lunch next week. Although it’ll be 40°C in Perth on Christmas day, so please think of me sweating while I eat if you happen to be lucky enough to be snuggling with hot drinks in cool weather. Lucky bastards.
Also, a very big thank you to everyone who has visited my blog, and left comments, and generally stuck around with me this year. The next post will be in 2013!
