Meet Lauren. She's from Muskegon. For her 4th birthday, she asked not for presents but for all of her friends and family to bring something for the homeless animals of Noah Project.
You'd think, being only 4, that she'd rip open a box of Milk-Bones and sort of be disappointed. Nope. She cheered every treat, played with every toy, and smiled and thanked everyone who helped her surpass her donation goal by a mile.
Well done, kiddo! We'll see you at www.westmichiganpetexpo.com!
- My first job was as a "Soda Jerk" at Cone Corners in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. (Cheesy, huh?)
- Every spring, I participate in the World's Largest Trivia Contest in my hometown of Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Out of about 500 teams and 10-12,000 players, we usually finish in the top 100!!! It's 54 straight hours of useless information and I love it. See? I'm not wired right. Just for the record, my team placed 73rd this year. :)
- I am a proud doggie mommy of "Spooner." She's a rescue who was an abused puppy mill mom. I am amazed at the FANTASTIC rescues and shelters we have in West Michigan. If you think you want to add to your family, the joy of a shelter pet in unparalleled!
- I was the lead singer in a cover band and I miss it.
