Beyond LOLcats: Improve Lives with Animals


Resource posted by: GOOD Worldwide Inc

Created on: October 24, 2012

Resource description

Animals make us laugh, give us comfort and can [literally] guide us through life. How can you use the power for animals to improve the lives of those in your community? Get creative! Perhaps you could organize a puppy petting party for people in the hospital, create a therapeutic horseback riding program, or work with your community to improve a wildlife habitat in your area. Tell us how you think animals can make the most impact on your community and you could win $2,500 to make it happen.

The Improve Lives with Animals challenge is open for submissions from October 22 to November 15 (noon Pacific Time). From November 16 to December 4 (noon Pacific Time), we'll open it up to public voting. Rally your colleagues and friends to get behind your effort and join the GOOD community in selecting the winner.
