Kindness, Compassion to Animals, Each Other and our Planet.

There are people and animals at risk during these times. We’ve been working hard to made our Curious Critters available on holiday products to support our charity.

We were planning a trip to visit and then the pandemic hit.  We can’t show you the pictures we were going to take of the horses, donkeys, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens, llamas, peacocks, emus, cats and dogs in sanctuary at The Gentle Barn

In substitute, take a look at these animals!

The Gentle Barn is on a six-acre paradise in Santa Clarita, CAThe Gentle Barn has a second location in Nashville, Tennessee, and a third in St Louis, Missouri. It is their goal to open Gentle Barns in every state so that everyone in America can hug cows, cuddle turkeys, give pigs tummy rubs, and look into the eyes of these animals and know for certain that we are all the same, and deserving of the same rights, respects, and freedoms.

Since its inception, The Gentle Barn has saved thousands of animals.  Once rehabilitated, the animals help us give hope and inspiration to children with the same stories:

Bet you didn’t know you should sing Jingle Bells for Thanksgiving . .

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Buzzers that ding

Aromas that delight

IF you’re a turkey and hear bells ring

Something’s not quite right

It’s the oven timer . . . too late to TAKE FLIGHT!

Jingle Bells, one of the most familiar American Christmas songs was originally written for Thanksgiving.  The author and composer of Jingle Bells was James Pierpoint, a minister, who composed the song in 1857 for children celebrating Thanksgiving at his Boston Sunday school.

“The Gentle Barn rescues animals from severe abuse and neglect who are too old, sick, lame, or scared to be adopted into homes. We are sanctuary to horses, donkeys, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens, llamas, peacocks, emus, cats and dogs.”

Once rehabilitated, the animals help us give hope and inspiration to children with the same stories:

 

SPECIAL Tree of Life for the Holidays

It’s unusual to receive a card in snail mail nowadays.  Increasingly, social media, text and e-mail messages are the choice for everything from birthday greetings to wedding invitations. It was a nice surprise to receive a card from Sharon Bonin-Pratt (A “CURIOUS” Well Done Woman) and was struck by how lovely and whimsical the trees were.

I was even more surprised and delighted when I saw Sharon had hand drawn and painted it.  

Peggy, too, loved it and made it into a poster. With Sharon’s urging we are donating one third of all profits to The Gentle Barn, Animal Rescue charity.  (Judy)

“It is a tree of life to all who grasp it,

and whoever holds on to it is happy;

its ways are ways of pleasantness,

and all it paths are peace.

(Proverbs 3:17-18)
