Don’t come at us for caring about Cecil the Lion!

Often times I struggle when I want to reply to a friend or acquaintance that writes something, says something or posts something on social media that I adamantly disagree with.  Most of the time I am told to look the other way and not to engage with people.

Tell The Little Red Dog That Releasing Balloons is not okay!

None-the-less it takes other individuals to make change. I hope you will join me in writing and calling The Little Red Dog, an organization based […]
