Community service club's stuffed toy collection drive a smashing success

Over 500 stuffed animals were donated by the Alternative High School / Malberg community. These generous donations were shared with Glad Dogs Nation, an organization that donates 100% of its profits to animals in need. Glad Dogs Nation turns every donated animal into a safe and fun dog toy which it then sells and all of the profits are donated to a wide variety of programs to stem pet overpopulation.

One member of the club stated “This is our best donation drive we’ve ever had. People love animals and want to make an impact. Students loved being able to reuse and recycle their stuffed animals and are happy they are going to great use.”

"If you copy, it means you’re working without any real feeling, no two people on earth are alike." -Billie Holiday, renowned African-American jazz and swing singer

“I raise up my voice—not so I can shout but so that those without a voice can be heard… We cannot succeed when half of us are held back.” – Malala Yousafzai, Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest Nobel Prize laureate

“You cannot shake hands with a clenched fist.” – Indira Gandhi, first female Prime Minister of India

According to the Library of Congress "Women’s History Month began as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress authorized and requested the President to announce the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week.”"

The National Women’s History Project lobbied the United States Congress. As a result, the Library of Congress adds, "Congress designated the month of March 1987 as “Women’s History Month.”"

The month of March has been referred to as “Women’s History Month” by U.S. presidents since 1995.
