“Writ­ing the Giv­ing page has changed my per­spec­tive and my life, es­pe­cially dis­cov­er­ing the many ways a per­sonal chal­lenge or awak­en­ing can be turned into a force for good, and har­nessed to help oth­ers. I am very in­spired by the per­sonal sto­ries that have led to th­ese won­der­ful ad­vo­ca­cies that im­pact lives be­yond our own,” says Agustines (pic­tured here with daugh­ter Cza­rina), who reg­u­larly pro­files phil­an­thropic or­ga­ni­za­tions for T&C’s Giv­ing sec­tion. This month, she talks to the founders of Hound Haven, a home for re­tired ser­vice dogs. Agustines shares that her fam­ily re­cently res­cued a puppy of their own: “Af­ter try­ing to find his mother and litter to no avail, we de­cided to bring him into our fam­ily. He is quite the per­son­al­ity and makes us laugh ev­ery day, so maybe you could say that he res­cued us.”
