Today’s post is for a great cause. My friend Richa who blogs at Hobby & More has come up with this wonderful initiative to raise some money for VSPCA – Visakha Society for Protection and Care of Animals, India. I commend Richa for taking up this wonderful cause and I hope this fundraiser turns out to be a huge success.

Here are a few things that VSPCA works for –

– to improve the conditions for animals in India and increase awareness.
– to stop the illegal trade of internationally-protected sea turtles and other wildlife,
– rescue cows and water buffalo from illegal slaughter,
– provide permanent happy sanctuary to hundreds of dogs, cats, birds, monkeys, horses, rabbits, tortoises, other animals who had been suffering severe abuse or neglect,
– provide Vegan Meals to the poor, especially seniors and children.
If you have a cause that is close to your heart. They already touch a part of it! Read More about their projects and needs on their website VSPCA. and testimonials.

This cause is very close to my heart, but sadly I have never done much to support it. Though I am not a vegan myself, I do believe that all animals have a right to safe shelter and food.

But when Richa announced this initiative, I wanted to make sure that I helped as much as I could in spreading the word around. And my dear readers, when I have all of you with me on this blog, do I need to worry?? :) I request you all to please take a moment and read through this post and contribute in whatever way you can, you can bid or just spread the word around.
