July Blood Moon Eclipse

donation full moon Jersey Shore

Friday’s lunar eclipse means change and transformation are ahead! I’m excited to see what the universe has in store for Cat Paw Gems in the coming month, as I have several new ventures in the works!

For this month, I chose a local NYC non-profit: Korean K9 Rescue, an all-volunteer group rescuing dogs from the meat trade industry. They state on their website: "Many of our dogs come from the brutal dog meat trade and are also puppy mill survivors. These two billion dollar industries work hand in hand with each...
