Last week, many of us had an indulgent week – we spent Thanksgiving day surrounded by friends and family, followed by a day of shopping on Black Friday. And today is #CyberMonday, one of the busiest online shopping days of the year.
There’s nothing wrong with indulging the week of Thanksgiving, whether adding an extra scoop of mashed potatoes to your plate at Thanksgiving dinner or stocking up on gifts during the weekend sales. But for many, the overconsumption that surrounds the holidays takes a welcome backseat during tomorrow’s day of charitable giving — #GivingTuesday.
The global day of giving back, #GivingTuesday is a day when your support can make a major impact on American Humane and our passion to build a more humane world. And tomorrow, November 28th, we’re joining the movement of generosity.
We have an ambitious goal for tomorrow—to raise $15,000 in just 24 hours from compassionate animal lovers like you. Your contribution on #GivingTuesday will directly support our programs: working to stop animal cruelty, helping animal victims of natural disasters, providing veterans struggling with Post-Traumatic Stress with trained service dogs, and so much more.
As an added benefit, if you make a gift to American Humane in honor of #GivingTuesday, your contribution will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $350,000, thanks to a generous gift from internationally renowned philanthropist Lois Pope, a longtime supporter of American Humane.
