I am…donating stuffed animals
Our church is collecting stuffed animals for Animal Beacons of Light in Mountain View. This is an agency that gathers the soft stuffed animals, adds the energies of Love, Joy and Reiki and then gifts them to children of all ages in orphanages, hospitals and homes around the world in countries including Bosnia/Herzegovina, Afghanistan, South Africa, Mexico Central America and Brazil.
I took this as an opportunity to clean off the display shelf in my guest bedroom. Plus, I have given stuffed animal to Ellen with Animal Beacons of Light in the past so I know what good work they do.
