Blogs have really come a long way since they first began as online journals or diaries. Now they're often used as a means of self-publishing, and are a very practical way of getting information online to reach a large number of people.

The FestivalNet Giving Tree

Our Giving Tree supports organizations working to make the world a better place. FestivalNet Staff members take turns selecting organizations to receive a percentage of our gross revenues. We have a unique circumstance this month, in that the request to include this charity came directly from a FestivalNet member. The Freedom Fidos organization rescues dogs from local shelters, and spends up to two years training them to be support animals. Afterwards, the support dog is off to its new home with a veteran or child in need.

To learn more about our Giving Tree program and to see past donation recipients, please visit this page.
