Rule of 3

Neo-pagans believe that what they put out into the world will come back to them times three.  So, send out good energy and three times the good will come back to you.  Do an evil deed and three times the evil will hunt you down and find you.  It’s a little like karma, but with slightly different concepts of good & evil.

Three is also a “magical” number in many other systems of belief: good things come in threes, the Trinity, etc.  According to In Black and White (and I think Nathan Winograd says the same), if we increase pet adoptions by 3%, we could halt the euthanasia of healthy pets.  So, In Black and White created her own set of goals (in threes, of course) to contribute to making that change.  She has inspired me to do the same.

My Rule of 3 Goals:

1. Find at least three sponsors for the Wish Bone Canine Rescue Calendar Project (I’d love to raise at least $300 , but since this is my first time soliciting donations, I’m worried that’s too much to hope for. )

2. Work at least 3 adoption events for Wish Bone before the end of the year.

3.  Donate at least $30 in cash or goods to Wish Bone or CISAR before the end of the year.

My goals are modest to start, since I’m just getting started volunteering.  I’ve also set a deadline, so I have about 6 weeks to complete them.  After the first of the year, I’ll set new Rule of 3 Goals for 2012, and hopefully they’ll be a bit more ambitious.
