Supporting Rusty and the ASPCA

Rusty Haag is my youngest son. He turned eleven years old yesterday.

 His favorite TV channel is Animal Planet where ads are routinely run for the  ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). These sad ads have touched his heart and motivated him to help these animals depicted in the commercials.

He joined the ASPCA and frequently asks me for money to send to them. He wants to to be an animal rescuer.

To honor Rusty on his birthday, I had him to draw an animal picture. We are selling  prints of this picture for $5.00 each. To order one, please check the button at the top right-hand side of this screen. This will take you to the order information screen. All profits from the sale of this picture will be donated to the ASPCA. When I suggested this prospect to Rusty, he got really excited.

Of course, this is not his only birthday present. But this will hopefully be one for the memory books. I am raising this money to honor Rusty and to nurture his sense of social justice and altruism. I think that we don’t do enough to honor one another in life.

Click on the  "Buy Now" button to purchase a print of Rusty's drawing.You can frame it and have it displayed prominently in your home to let your guests know that you have supported Rusty and the ASPCA.This sale will continue for one month from today. The last day to buy a print is  October 20, 2011.

I want to add a quick shout-out and thank you to Ms. Moody, Art Teacher at Tom Green Elementary in Buda, Texas for her wonderul advice.

 Thank you for your support.

We need to celebrate those around us as much as possible and find ways to leave a great legacy of honor in our own families. Thank you for sharing this! Happy Birthday Rusty!
