Share the Valentine Love

We at readergirlz are a big fan of Valentines, so we found a couple of ways you can reach out and share the love this February!

* Have a Heart for Chained Dogs Week (Feb 7-14) is raising awareness for chained and penned dogs by delivering Valentines, educational info and dog food coupons to canines living outside. This year's goal is to send out 12,500 Valentines to these neglected dogs. You can help by making Valentines, mailing in coupons for dog treats or sending addresses of chained or penned dogs in your community. The Valentines are needed by February 5th (that's Thursday!) so head on over to Dogs Deserve Better for more info.

* Valentines for Vets is an initiative sponsored by delight.com and radio KEZW in Denver, Colorado. The want you to make some creative hearts for Disabled Veterans by February 7th! Visit delight.com to find out where to send your masterpieces.
