Shannon's Charity Choice: Pasado's Animal Safe Haven
As you may know, I am very passionate about animal rescue. Eric and I rescued Mila (our cat) from the Turks and Caicos islands and hope to rescue more animals in the future. In the interim, we ask that you help us donate to Pasado's Animal Safe Haven to help animals get rescued from abuse, neglect and find their fuurrrever home.
Here is a little bit about Pasado's:
Pasado’s Safe Haven is one of the leading animal protection organizations in the United States dedicated to ending animal cruelty. Located on 85 pastoral and wooded acres outside of Seattle, Washington, the sanctuary is home to hundreds of animals including dogs, cats, and farm animals. Most arrived from abuse or neglect and now live out their lives in peace and safety.
Pasado’s Safe Haven is dedicated to ending animal cruelty. We rescue dogs, cats and farmed animals from abuse and neglect, advocate for better treatment of these animals by society and promote laws and personal choices that eliminate suffering for animals.

Eric's Charity Choice: Brody Borlaug Foundation
The Brody Borlaug Foundation was established in 2011 by Eric’s friends Jeff and Tracy Borlaug in memory of their son, Brody, who died at the tender age of three from complications of primary immunodeficiency while preparing for a bone marrow transplant.
In both honoring and continuing Brody’s legacy, The Brody Borlaug Foundation has partnered with Doernbecher Children’s Hospital to establish a world-class Pediatric Immunology Program, which would serve two purposes: (1) support and enhance the already noteworthy Pediatric Blood, Cancer and Bone Marrow Transplant Programs at the hospital and (2) offer on-site expertise to diagnose and care for children with life threatening diseases such as leukemia, metabolic disorders and pediatric immunodeficiency disorders. With your help we can make a difference in the life of a child.
