After a nice stiff drink.
What do I think?
I've got my list about
Where I want it I shout...


People who think.
People who wink
At the conceited.
Just what is needed --


People who give a damn
And seem to be fam.
People who stop to share.
People who really care


And always put self
Away on some shelf!
I love, yes, LOVE, my FB friends
Who shun trendy trends!


Oriented toward global type
Peace & activism --no hype!
Welcome to the world we want,
No kids nor animals sad and gaunt.


Hope is ours and we march to that
Whenever we click away and chat!


Sincerely yours, Susie Sexton -- that is I!
That's all for now...Love ya! Good-bye!

Sent to me by Squawk Backer Carissa Serino:

Traveling Friends Transit is an up-and-coming animal rescue transport service, and our mission is to save animals from high kill shelters, and bring them to the loving arms of fosters, rescuers, and adopters. Every day, 10,000 healthy, and adoptable animals are murdered in shelters, because there is not enough room or they cannot afford to keep them alive. Transportation is key to the rescue process. Someone may live in New York, and want to adopt a dog from Texas, so this is where transportation comes in. We have done volunteer transports, and I am an approved driver for Kindred Hearts Transportation Connection, and Martha's Mutt Movers.

Here is the link:

My long-term boyfriend and I are very passionate about animals, and we want to help them any way we can. We set up our campaign on Indiegogo, a crowd funding site, to help us raise funds for our future small business. We listed specific amounts on our campaign page along with perks, but people can donate anything they can afford, they just cannot choose a perk. We have raised $355 so far, but our goal is $10,000 (the same number of innocent animals killed every day). We are hoping and praying we can achieve our goal before the deadline on November 18, 2013. We also intend to make our transportation prices affordable for everyone interested in rescuing an animal. We do not want to cut into the animals' funds.

We have also just posted a new promotion, which will provide transportation discounts to those looking to foster, rescue, or adopt an animal. We need support from the animal community, and we cannot do this without your help.

Every animal deserves to live, and we do not have the power to deny them that. Every animal deserves to be loved and cared for. Every animal has the right to find their forever home, so please help us save their lives. Only you can make a difference even if it is for one animal. Big or small, Traveling Friends Transit, will transport any animal in need of saving. - Carissa Serino
