Early this week I found this heart-warming video of a pet photographer who realized a need around her and decided to take action. Basically, she figured that if shelters and animal rescues had better photo options to place on their websites of the animals they were trying to help get adopted, maybe they would have a higher number of adoptions!
Her wonderings ended up being true, and in one instance, a rescue's adoption rate went up 100%! Check out this short video highlighting the idea, implementation, and after effects.
Optimism Tip of the Week: We can't say "Yes" to every need, want, or cry for help. However, as optimists, we do have the ability to open our eyes, see the need for change around us and act to benefit the causes that mean the most to us.
We'd love to know: What cause is near and dear to your heart? What do you give of yourself to help? Service can be defined as "action that benefits another." How are you serving on a daily, weekly, monthly basis? Let us know by leaving a comment below!
