Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: When Young Children Do Good

thankful thursday blog hop brian 01282021

Hello everyone, welcome to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am always so very thankful to each of you for joining us! Each and every Thursday we share the things for which we are most thankful and we always enjoy reading all of the things you are thankful for too. If you are new to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, thanks for hopping in, we really do get excited when new blogger pals join us!

Today I’m thankful for young humans that smile and make the world a better place. Today I’m thankful for Emma, the little four year old girl with a big heart filled with love for bunnies. Yes, bunnies. Kitties and doggies aren’t the only critters looking for homes. Bunnies are adorable and need love and care too.

I’m thankful for Emma and for the Bunny Brigade South Carolina. You see, little Emma had two bunnies of her own, sadly one was called to the Rainbow Bridge early, but Emma loves bunnies. One day when she got her allowance she wanted to donate $1.25 to the Bunny Brigade, so her Mom helped her do just that.

Katie Elliot of the Bunny Brigade South Carolina thought it was really cute that a four year old wanted to donate $1.25 and posted it to their Facebook page. Others responded to Emma’s kindness and as of January 22 Emma’s $1.25 donation had grown to almost $1800. Way to go Emma!!!

Hooray for Emma! It is a joyful thing when children are raised to love and help animals. All of my children learned to help bottle raise orphaned kittens from the time they were very young.

What a lovely story! Which only proves no donation is too small.

We are huge rabbit hunters and we find it hard to believe, but Mom used to have house rabbits when she was a teenager! She still loves rabbits and says they do make fun pets. Glad someone is looking out for them but we can’t have any at our place.

Meowser, I like little ms. Emma! I once had a couple bunny brofurs, but they were very old, so I only had a couple years with them. Brian dear furiend, thank you for hosting this blog hop.

Children who are taught to love all critters great and small learn so many of life’s lessions, unconditional love and that every critter is to be love and respected. Emma learned this lesson very early her life will always be enriched by this. Hugs Cecilia

Did you know that my first pet was a bunny named Mr Zip? My mom got him for me when I was a little girl for Easter. I loved Mr Zip – but she did not like the fact that he did not abide by her rules – so unfortunately, Mr. Zip was not a long-lasting member of our household!

BTW, you are looking quite dapper in your photo today… 🙂

Momma has always wanted a bunny. Unfortunately she made a mistake getting Wabbit. He is not cuddly or sweet. The only thing he gotz going for him is being soft like a bunny.

Great story! One of my relatives use to rescue bunnies. Also my girlfriends granddad raised domestic rabbits so when we were kids we loved to visit them . Love the photo and always good to be here. Thank you for always being so kind. Have a wonderful week.
