The big "O" for Best Friends

Some big news for one of my favorite charities, Best Friends Animal Society--They were selected to be featured in O magazine as one of Oprah's top ten charities. This is basically the equivalent of being selected as one of Oprah's "favorite things" but for charities.

In celebration of the magazine's ten year anniversary, the are doing a "Live Your Best Life" fundraising walk in NYC over mother's day weekend. Some walks are targeted to just one cause, but this is targeted to ten, allowing more people to participate to help charities that may not have the resources to organize something like this one their own. Even if you can't walk, you can still help fundraise of course. Oprah is planning some exciting prizes for the top fundraisers, and Best Friends is offering some very cool incentives too.

If you needed a reason to participate, or to give, you should read about all the great work that Best Friends does on their website. If you already know and love Best Friends, like me, you will enjoy this adorable video of nine puppies that recently landed at their sanctuary in Kanab, UT. Sure, the video is super cute (especially the synchronized head tilting at the end), but the best part is knowing that all of these puppies will find great forever homes because of the angels working on their behalf.
