Instead of expecting expensive wedding gifts like many brides, Leigh Clark asked friends and family to spread a little love around the local community. And the results were incredible.
Leigh told the Huffington Post: “The world had given us something we both spent a lifetime looking for — true love. The best thing we could do was to spread kindness through our wedding.”
Friends and family loved the idea. Bridesmaid Emily Schairer (and daughter Chloe) donated pet supplies to a local animal shelter.
In light of the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, this news, at least, hints at hope for France.
As of Tuesday evening, domesticated canines are no longer considered personal property but living beings under a new law in France.
This is the same nation that made it illegal for grocery stores to purposefully waste food, as well hosted the world’s first car-free day. Certainly, progressive happenings are taking place in France.
DogHeirs reports that nearly 700,000 people signed a petition against the 1804 law that categorized pets as “movable goods,” such as furniture and kitchen equipment.
The change to the law now gives 63 million pets more protection against cruelty and brings the civil law in line with the penal code
According to Luc Ferry, the former education minister, the Napoleonic legislation was “absurd.” He happily signed the petition and declared:
“No one has ever tortured a clock. Animals suffer, they have emotions and feelings. It is not a question of making animals subjects of the law…but simply of protecting them against certain forms of cruelty.”
Reportedly, this new change also means couples can contest custody in a divorce and claim compensation for suffering caused to a pet accidental injuries. People will also be allowed to leave their inheritances to their pets.
This is certainly a step forward for the animal kingdom.

Thanks to two kind-hearted women, rescued battery chickens are experiencing how good – and cozy – life can be.
Nicola Congdon and her mother, Ann, from Falmouth in Cornwall, England, own around 60 hens and half of them are former battery chickens. This means that they have, unfortunately, spent most of their lives in cages, and are not able to acclimatize to normal weather conditions.
To keep them warm during the frigid winter months, Ann and Nicola came up with an ingenious solution: knit them wooly chicken jumpers.
“It’s important to make people aware of the poor conditions the hens live in and the fact that they have no feathers when they are retired.”
Nicola and Ann are now receiving special requests for jumpers from hen-keepers near and far. Instead of selling the tank tops for profit, she said the money goes to an AIDS orphanage in South Africa.
r e l ’s music radiates emotion, embodying what she calls “evoca-pop”– music that makes you think and feel– and what has been labeled by music-tastemakers and fans as dream pop/alternative r&b.
In just over a year, REL has garnered both critical acclaim and over 100,000 soundcloud listens. Watch her video covering the Glass Animals “Gooey”.
