I had been wanting to feature animals, specifically pets, in an AmperArt piece for a long time.
A special event inspired me to create what you see here.
A birthday party to help homeless animals
In August I was invited to a “milestone” birthday party for my friend and professional speaking coach Arvee Robinson (that’s her, the pretty lady in the picture).
Arvee always does things with pizazz, flair and the most upbeat attitude. But what she did for her birthday took me by surprise, and really warmed my heart. Besides a grand party with fabulous food, dancing, and a magic show, Arvee themed it with dogs and cats to double as a fundraiser for H.O.P.E., a rescue and rehab for homeless animals. (More about H.O.P.E in a moment.) Arvee even had “doggie bags” which were full of swag for our pets. And she helped me select the breeds for this AmperArt piece – she once had a siamese and a pug.
Arvee Robinson is also the founder of the Christian Women Speakers Movement, where her goal is to help other speakers overcome the fear of “bringing God to more stages.” She asks,
“Are you afraid you might be unpopular if you bring God to the secular stage?”
She once was, she says. Read about this special group at christianwomenspeakersmovement.com.
Helping Our Pets Everyday
At Arvee’s birthday party I had the honor of meeting Margaret Coffman, the founder of H.O.P.E. – Helping Our Pets Everyday. Isn’t that a wonderful phrase? I told her I would definitely spread the word about her very special foundation, where Margaret and volunteers have compassionately saved hundreds of precious animals from abandonment, starvation and death. She has cared for animals her entire life.
