Viral Facebook Posts- Does it make a difference?

I'm tired of these pointless viral Facebook posts. SPAM statuses, or like this week's viral posting. Have a lot of your friends changed their profile pictures to cartoons? Are you seeing this status re-posted:

Change your FB profile picture to a cartoon from your childhood. The goal? To not see a human face on FB until Monday, December 6th. Join the fight against child abuse, copy & paste to your status and invite your friends to do the same.

What is the point of this? It doesn't help anyone? Sure it might be fun but does it really make a difference in a child's life?

We post these statuses to support the military, cancer awareness, child abuse, etc. Why are we not posting links to charities to help these types of causes instead? If you're going to show your support- do so to make a difference!

Tonight I posted a status that read:

It makes more sense to donate to a Charity that benefits a child then to change your profile picture to a cartoon. Check out this list of Children's Charities for ways you can actually make a difference: 
Now go do something good!

Afterwards I checked the list myself and chose a charity that I wanted to make a donation too. I chose to make a small donation to the Make A Wish Foundation.

If you're going to participate in this viral Facebook campaign then please copy and share the status I made with your friends and donate to a charity to truly make a difference in a child's life!

Star's Rat Rescue

My friend Brittney operates Star's Rat Rescue in Winner, South Dakota. Brittney helps rescue rats in need and helps to place them in forever loving homes. You can see her current adoptable rats on

Brittney also makes hammocks, cage liners & cubes for rats. All of her proceeds go towards her rescue. For more information you can visit her store here.

I recently ordered a Ferret Nation cage liner set & two cubes from her rescue. (She has a great selection of fabrics so you can customize your order!) They arrived on Thursday and they were so nice! The cage liners were thick and soft. Each of the liners has elastic on the bottom so it will secure nicely in the cage. The cubes were adorable, my ratties really loved them!

Here are some pictures of my girls enjoying their cubes:

The girls cage looks so nice now with everything in it here are a few pictures:
