Tuesday, November 28
We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate your generosity.
With your help, we were able to surpass our $15,000 matching gift challenge in 2016! Those funds go directly to helping thousands of animals that enter our shelter every year. On #GivingTuesday we celebreate your generosity, compassion and devotion to caring for homeless companion animals and wildife in need!
If you are interested in learning more about becoming a matching gift donor, please contact Kim Jensen at (608) 838-0413 ext. 118.

What is #Giving Tuesday?
Now in its fifth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
#GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the work to bring about real change in their communities. It also brings together the collective power of a uniqueblen of partners, nonprofits, civic organizations, and businesses, as well as families and individuals to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness. As a global movement, #GivingTuesday unites countries around the world by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.
