Small actions, such as those featured on DailyFeats, can go a long way in making our society more compassionate toward the most vulnerable among us.
New York, NY (PRWEB) June 16, 2011
DailyFeats, where people do good things every day to reach their lifelong goals, announced today its partnership with American Humane Association, the nation’s voice for the protection of children and animals, to raise awareness and encourage action for their safety and well-being.
American Humane Association will support four new feats to check in and earn points for at DailyFeats: !petsafety, ensuring that a family's pets are safe from harm and prepared for emergencies; !animalethics, taking action to understand and advocate for humane treatment of animals as pets and for animals that provide food for America’s tables; !listentoakid, listening to and understanding the important needs of children; and !rolemodel, acting in a way that sets a positive example for others. All these feats, focused on creating a world where animals and children are treated humanely, can be viewed and checked in at http://aha.dailyfeats.com/ .
How does it work? Whenever members have done a meaningful, positive action – like enjoying a piece of fresh fruit, volunteering in your community, or keeping your pet safe – they visit DailyFeats on their computers or smartphones and check in that feat, sharing the value it created for them and inspiring others to do the same. They earn points to redeem for over 100,000 discounts at neighborhood businesses or savings from national brands, and discover more ways to take action.
With help from commercial and nonprofit partners such as American Humane Association, who support feats that match their own values, DailyFeats believes that together we can create the change our society needs, starting from the smallest actions and working upwards.
"Small actions, such as those featured on DailyFeats, can go a long way in making our society more compassionate toward the most vulnerable among us," said American Humane Association’s President and CEO, Robin Ganzert. "The feats sponsored by American Humane Association work to enhance the well-being of children, promote the welfare of animals, and strengthen the human animal bond."
"The way we treat animals and children is a reflection of our deepest values," said Veer Gidwaney, CEO of DailyFeats, "and it's profoundly important that we all be mindful of them. The work American Humane Association has been doing, for 134 years, to protect and respond to the needs of children and animals is an inspiration to us and to everyone who's working to create a better and more positive world. We're proud to be their partner."
