Homeless kids and animals take care of each other in Philly!  »

Warning: tearjerker!

[Can’t see the video? Watch it on!]

How clucking sweet are the pictures in that video?! I just found out about this awesome organization Hand 2 Paw in Philly that gets homeless kids to work in animal shelters. It’s mutually beneficial! The animals get much-needed attention and the benefits to the kids are numerous. For one thing, the unconditional love of an animal can be very therapeutic, especially for a kid who maybe never received a lot of love. Also, the most difficult thing about getting a first job is not having work experience. In a shelter, there are all kinds of opportunities to learn about office work, management and general operational skills.

Go here to see how you can help! They are always looking for supplies. You can also “like” them on Facebook to show your support and keep up to date with the organization’s goings-on.
