HIGH NOTE GivingBack and Ending the Year on a
Sugar and Cleo
M y community means so much to me. If you’ve followed the newsletter over these past few months, you know about a few of the causes my wife and I are involved with. This includes Doodle Rock Rescue, TangoTab, and Mission Arlington. These three causes are particularly close to my heart. This month I want to take some time to delve into these organizations a little further. Alison and I love dogs. Because we are so passionate about dogs, and doodles in particular, we reached out to Doodle Rock Rescue, and this became a small way for us to give back. We currently have a goldendoodle named Cleo and a Great Pyrenees named Sugar. Alison had a labradoodle named Silvey for 13 years, who unfortunately passed away last year. I’ve had doodles before getting Cleo, as well. Doodle Rock Rescue ( doodlerockrescue.org ) is dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming goldendoodles and other similar breeds that fall into the “doodle” category. Because of the growing popularity for doodles, there are a lot of unethical breeders out there who treat these dogs like a commodity.
of these “designer dogs.” But sometimes, life happens — sometimes people are forced to give up their beloved dogs, or by unfortunate circumstances, the dogs end up in a kill shelter.
No matter the situation, Doodle Rock Rescue does what they can to save dogs from these unfortunate circumstances, one doodle at a time. Families like ours work with the rescue to help the dogs transition to their forever homes. It brings Alison and me great joy to see the smiles on kids’ faces when a doodle joins their family. TangoTab, an app we’ve profiled in the newsletter, is a great way for everyone to get involved in giving back to the community. TangoTab’s mission is to give you the easiest way to feed people in need in your city. When you check in at a restaurant on the app, the company donates the monetary cost of a meal to a local food organization. Every week, over one billion meals are served to Americans who dine out. With TangoTab, each one of those meals has the potential to become a meal for someone in need. There’s no extra cost to you, and there are over 100,000 participating restaurants on the app. It really is that simple! If you want to get involved, be sure to check out TangoTab’s website ( tangotab.com ) or their Facebook page to become a part of their Feed the City event. Alison and I host one of these events the first Saturday morning of every month at Troy’s at Texas Live! in Arlington ( texas-live. com/eat-and-drink/troys ). We would love to have you join us in making meals for the hungry. Another organization that means a lot to me is Mission Arlington. They do so much for Arlington and the surrounding metroplex. Very recently, they were able to provide Thanksgiving meals to many who would have otherwise gone without.
A lot of it comes down to the fact that people are willing to pay thousands of dollars to obtain one
