Bow ties!

Yes, you read that correctly.

I came late to my desk yesterday afternoon so you will forgive me for launching straight into a piece I read on the BBC.


Bow ties give dogs in shelters a ‘second chance’

When 13-year-old Sir Darius Brown (yes, his real name) heard about displaced dogs being euthanised after Hurricanes Harvey and Irma in 2017, he had an idea.

His sister had taught him how to make bow ties and he decided to donate some to local animal shelters. It helped the dogs to get adopted faster.

Now his handmade bow ties have helped around 200 dogs across the US, leading him to receive a letter of recognition from former President Barack Obama.


There’s no shortage of brilliant young people!
