"THE 13 PROJECTWhen I heard of the 13 project I knew I wanted to be a part of it - but I was a little skeptical about how much I could actually do to help animals. For one person to make a big difference is an impossible task, but then I realised something. The idea of the 13 project is not for one person to make a whole lot of difference, but for a whole lot of people to make a difference for even one animal. Whether it be walking or playing with a shelter dog or even adopting one into your life, there are a vast number of ways we can all help out.
The 13 Project is a Pretty Fluffy initiative that involves 13 acts of kindness towards animals before 2013. Inspired by my involvement in last year’s 12 before 2012 project, I wanted to make the tail end of 2012 count. We have exactly 13 weeks left of this year, so what better way of embarking on a list of 13 achievable and worthy goals before the year is out.
To join, all you have to do is come up with a list of up to 13 ways you can help animals before the end of 2012. You don’t need to be a millionaire, you don’t need to have a website, or be a member of a rescue organisation…All you need is the desire to make a difference. If you’re time poor, make your list just one goal – or 3 or 5 things."
