 |  Feb 11th 2009  |   109 Contributions


Are you, like me, tired of reading horrific animal abuse stories? Fed up with the lax laws and lack of legislation to punish offenders? Do you ever feel that as one person you can't make a difference? Good news, you can, and it's easier than you think.

Dan Hoffman and Carrie Pollare are brother and sister. They have teamed up to help create change through a new campaign "I'm Tired Of..", with the premise that a community of hundreds of thousands of people each contributing a small amount will cause a butterfly effect. To do this they have created some very cool bracelets, for men and women, so you can show the world what you would like to change and contribute to your cause of choice at the same time.

The "I'm Tired of..." bracelets were created to fight against the world's issues that we are all tired of, like animal cruelty, world hunger, global warming, cancer, diabetes and so many more. The fashionable bracelets are made from recycled tires and metals, creating a fun play on the word, tired, and cost just $10, so anyone can afford them. Then half the sale ($5) from each one is donated to charities the company is aligned with that support each cause. Best Friends Animal Society is the beneficiary of the sales of the animal cruelty bracelets.

Their newest endeavor is combining forces with Best Friends Animal Society to help raise money for the "Vicktory Dogs", and all the residents of the sanctuary.

Just as the new season of National Geographic Channel's "Dogtown" is about to get underway, the cast got cozy with their favorite "Vicktory Dogs," rescued from the abuse of former NFL Quarterback Michael Vick, while showing off their "I'm Tired of Animal Cruelty" bracelets. Half the sale ($5) of each $10 bracelet goes to benefit Best Friends Animal Society, the rescue and rehabilitation center where "Dogtown" takes place.

Dan Hoffman and Carrie Pollare have created a wonderful company that has the opportunity to make a tremendous difference for so many causes. As an interesting aside, this brother and sister team didn't start this company to make money, they already had a multi-million dollar computer related business. "I'm Tired Of... " was started as a completely altruistic endeavor, they wanted to make a difference.

"I'm Tired of..." charitable campaign, which truly has brought "fulfilling" back to us. What we are doing now is amazingly gratifying and eye opening.

So, here we are with the "I'm Tired of..." bracelet campaign, absolutely the most gratifying endeavor we have ever undertaken."

Carrie has generously offered up five bracelets, men and women's, for a contest. To enter just leave a comment in the comment section stating what you're tired of, or what you plan on doing to make a difference. The contest starts today and runs through Wednesday, February 18th when I will randomly choose five lucky winners.

If you are looking to buy a gift for yourself or someone else, and want something special, please keep this company in mind. There's nothing better than buying something that you can enjoy while helping others at the same time.

I know what I'm tired of...animal cruelty.
