Capture Kindness: Week 10

Last week was a great week to be kind to animals! With this crazy freeze-and-thaw roller coaster we’ve been on, I’m sure your neighborhood critters could use some extra care!

There are a bunch of great organizations that would love your donation of money or volunteer time! But there are also things you can do at home!

  • You can put out food that is nutritious and appropriate for the animals in your area.  (Bread, though traditional, can be harmful to ducks and other birds.) Especially in the winter when food can be hard to find, homemade bird feeders like this one are great.

  • Make a bat house to encourage bats to hang around (get it?) your neighborhood and eat mosquitoes!  You can find out more, including building instructions, from the National Wildlife Federation.

  • Clean up after yourself while outside! Pick up trash when you see it. Animals need and deserve a clean place to live!

Anime Recommendation: Polar Bear Cafe

polar bear cafeAge Recommendation: 12+

Genre: Comedy

# of Episodes: 50

Synopsis:

“Polar Bear’s café revolves around a Canadian white bear that quits his boring job and starts a cafeteria near a zoo.” -Crunchyroll

Commentary:

At our last anime club (June), we viewed Polar Bear Cafe. It’s a show I’ve seen a long time ago that I wanted to introduce to everyone! It’s very lighthearted and pretty episodic so it’s easy to pop in and out on watching it. Panda is definitely my favorite character because he’s so sweet but not very bright (but always well-meaning!).

Some fun information too, a lot of the voice actors for the animals are famous Japanese voice actors that have done some popular characters! For example, Llama is Sebastian from Black Butler! Watch and see if you can tell!

Watch for free at Crunchyroll.com! Also don’t forget about our monthly anime nights! The next one is July 10! Come for anime, stay for the pocky!
