The Project Pawsitive Foundation is a team of excited (maybe even hyper!), enthusiastic, and caring friends in the construction and business industries who love to surprise deserving animal rescues in need of great repair with amazing facility renovations.
Renovations are filmed to take viewers on the team’s quest and get a first-hand look at why so many rescues are in desperate need of help, the importance of animal adoption, and how to prevent animal cruelty.
Whether you are a volunteer at a local shelter, or someone who has rescued many animals, you know how important a rescue shelter is in saving the lives of innocent animals. There are literally thousands of animal shelters around the country working tirelessly to save and rescue millions of animals each year. The financial burden it leaves on many facilities is devastating. Crumbling foundations, leaking roofs, frozen waterlines, and rusted kennels lead to increased stress on the animals and lowered adoption rates because people think it’s simply too sad to visit a place in ruins. Together, we can rebuild these terrible tragedies.
Through the eight years Project Pawsitive has been in service to the animal community, they have significantly increased adoption rates by over 50% in some cases and reduced euthanasia rates by over 60% in others. They’ve created an atmosphere that fosters reduced stress on the rescues and increases morale around the entire facility. These renovations are not about making a beautiful transformation, they are about changing the stigma about shelters and creating an environment that makes the rescue animals more adoptable.
Their mission goes nowhere without your support. You can become a member of The Pawsitive Club by donating $10 a month. They have a goal to renovate four amazing shelters in 2017 and get thousands more beautifully-innocent animals adopted!

After years of prosecuting hard-core criminals, rising legal star Alan Bell took a private sector job in South Florida’s newest skyscraper. Suddenly, he suffered such bizarre medical symptoms, doctors suspected he’d been poisoned by the Mafia. Bell’s rapidly declining health forced him to flee his glamorous Miami life to a sterile “bubble” in the remote Arizona desert.
As his career and marriage dissolved, Bell pursued medical treatments in a race against time, hoping to stay alive and raise his young daughter, his one desperate reason to keep going. He eventually discovered he wasn’t poisoned by a criminal, but by his office building. His search for a cure led him to discover the horrifying truth: his tragedy was just the tip of the iceberg. Millions of people fall ill and die each year because of toxic chemical exposures―without knowing they’re at risk.
Stunned by what he discovered, Bell chose to fight back, turning his plight into an opportunity. Despite his precarious health, he began collaborating with scientists dedicated to raising awareness about this issue. Soon, he also found himself drawn back into the legal field, teaming up with top lawyers fighting for those who had already fallen ill.
Both a riveting medical mystery and a cautionary tale, this book puts a human face on the hidden truths behind toxic dangers assaulting us in our everyday environments―and offers practical ways to protect ourselves and our children.
Allan is offering all of my listeners his 21 tips on keeping your home free from toxins - without a huge investment of money.

FreshBox Farms’ indoor hydroponic farms are bringing fresh produce closer to your home by breaking down the old barriers set by traditional farming. Their produce is delivered to stores within 24 hours of harvest; often in the same day. Growing indoors at their farm in Millis, Massachusetts, means their greens are always in-season, and are available FRESH all year-round.
FreshBox Farms’ greens are of the highest quality and grown purely, without ever using pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, or any other chemicals. Their crops are never genetically modified and proudly verified by the Non-GMO Project.
FreshBox Farms’ greens are clean from seed to your kitchen! Most other greens are triple-washed in chemicals because they are grown in dirt, exposed to pollutants, and handled by many people as they are transported thousands of miles. In comparison, their products are grown in climate-controlled, clean, indoor environments and are handled using only the best practices to maintain their cleanliness.
Kosher Certified – All of the greens are certified as adhering to the highest Kosher standards by KVH Kosher, one of the top Kosher certification agencies in North America. This serves as a testament to the purity and integrity of the farm’s operation.
FreshBox Farms grows indoors by using Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) where their modern-day farmers provide the perfect temperature, humidity, and lighting for their crops to grow hydroponically. Because hydroponics allow the plant roots to sit directly in water to receive nutrients, they use 99% less water than field farming. Their indoor growing system allows them to grow vertically on shelves using a much smaller footprint; depending on the crop grown, one of their 320 square foot farms can yield as much as nineteen-acres of farmland.
All of their produce is grown hydroponically in specially outfitted enclosures. Each unit operates on its own as a fully sustainable farm with its environment carefully managed through mechanical and digital controls. This means year-round quality food production without the need to transport food cross-country. A clean growing environment also means no need for pesticides or herbicides.
Their seedlings start off as tiny little plants neatly contained in cork-sized blocks. They grow all of their seedlings themselves from carefully selected, non-GMO seeds. From there they are planted in a hydroponics system and nurtured, to grow to larger full sized plants for harvest.
Harvesting & Packaging
Each vegetable is harvested using their proprietary system, by their Harvest team, who wear gloves to prevent contamination. The produce is then packaged locally and shipped locally – ready to go on store shelves often within hours!
