Small ways that you can make a big difference for neighborhood nonprofits

Get a facial…
…at Facelogic, 4518 Lovers, on Friday, April 16, during the Go Organic event. During this time you can learn about the benefits of organic face products and how to reduce your carbon footprint. Everyone who buys $25 worth of green products gets a free facial. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Earth Day Network, which is dedicated to raising awareness about protecting the environment. And anyone who brings in a recyclable container on Earth Day, April 22, will get a $5 gift certificate simply for doing their part to be green.
Adopt a puppy…

…from Paws in the City, Golden Retriever Rescue of North Texas, Texas Italian Greyhound Rescue, Assistance Dogs of Texas or the Texas Adopt a Greyhound Society. All of those groups will be at the Plaza at Preston Center, southeast corner of Preston and Northwest Highway, on April 16 and 17. The pet adoptions are part of the annual Plaza Days, a two-day event filled with family fun and several promotions from retailers at the shopping center. So after you find the perfect pup to adopt, you can enjoy face painting, free popcorn, balloon artists for the kids and plenty of shopping.
