#GivingTuesday a time to reflect and embrace the spirit of the season
Entering its fifth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration to celebrate and encourage giving. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, this year on November 29, and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
This annual, national online event encourages all of us to take a moment and support a charitable cause close to our hearts. In 2015, more than 70 countries participated in #GivingTuesday and $116.7 million was raised online globally.
We hope you’ll become a part of the #GivingTuesday movement this year, and join us during our Morris Animal Foundation Season of Hope to give the gift of health to animals around the world. Your gift to Morris Animal Foundation helps us fund critical research on serious health issues affecting cats and dogs, horses and wildlife.
Even more exciting, now through December 31, 2016, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar to double the impact for animals. Generous friends of the Foundation have pledged to match gifts up to $100,000, including donations on this #GivingTuesday. There’s no better time to give than now, when your donation goes twice as far to help animals.
Morris Animal Foundation thanks you for choosing us a charitable cause close to your heart on this #GivingTuesday. Your donation today, and every day, saves the lives of animals through improved diagnostics and treatments that bring the precious gift of health.
