I Advocate: A Few of Julie's Favorite Things...

 …The Shelter Pet Project
A collaborative public service ad campaign from the Humane Society of the United States, Maddie’s Fund, and the Ad Council, the Shelter Pet Project encourages people to consider adopting pets from shelters. In a twist, their TV, radio and print ads are told from the perspective of the animals. theshelterpetproject.org

 …The Unisphere
Constructed as the theme symbol for the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair, this 140-foot high, 700,000-pound stainless steel representation of the Earth at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens never fails to inspire, especially when flanked by sprays from its recently reopened fountains. Often seen in coverage of the U.S. Open, which is played at the nearby USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, the Unisphere is dedicated to “Peace Through Understanding.” Plus, it’s located close to Jackson Heights, the gayborhood and mecca for foodies who crave international flavors. nycgovparks.org
