Positive affirmations have the power to turn our life around…literally! Abbe Dembowitz is the founder of the Turn It Around Project. Abbe struggled with severe self-esteem issues and fear of imperfection. During some time off from school and counseling, she found that she could uplift herself and positively turn her life around. She did this by using positive affirmations! She wanted to help others has he helped herself; this then helped hatch the idea of this inspiring project. How does it work? A photograph is taken from behind of the persons negative thought/message written on the persons back, that same negative thought/message is then turned positively and is written on the front of the person with their face showing. Thus, turning each negative thought into a positive, empowering these people to take control over their insecurities and make them their own in a positive way!

Powder Update! Powder Update! On February 28, 2016 Powder was found ABANDONED in the middle of the Florida Everglades. Dogs can not survive very long in these harsh conditions. A couple was out at the boat ramps at mile marker 39 off of US Hwy 27 and they saw Powder barely able to move trying to find a comfortable place to rest. The couple tried for hours to get help and Broward Sheriff's Office responded. The deputies on scene were determined to help this poor dog and bring him to safety. Within an hour, Dezzy's Second Chance Animal Rescue responded and agreed to take Powder into their care. Powder endured a long road to recovery including surgery on both his eyes. His treatment cost thousands of dollars. Today, Powder is fully recovered and ready for adoption! Watch his transformation from the brink of death to a beautiful healthy dog. There are still many other dogs in the care of the rescue that cared for Powder. Please go to WWW.DezzysSecondChance.com to DONATE what you can. EVERY DOLLAR HELPS!
