#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) 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.
Thanks to the love and support of amazing friends like you, Marley’s Mutts continues to rescue, foster, protect, care for, and rehabilitate so many helpless dogs. We have so many programs doing great work right now. We saw a 100% graduation rate from both all dogs and inmates in our Pawsitive Change Program. Mutt Movers is getting dogs into safe shelters and homes up and down the west coast. Our Foster Program has adopted out well over 30 dogs in the past month alone. And we know there is so much more good we can do in the future!
This coming Tuesday we are encouraging all of our friends to honor the occasion of Giving Tuesday by sharing their adoption stories. Rescues are our life’s work and we want to know WHY you chose your beloved dog.
Additionally, we will be kicking off a massive fundraising campaign to support our programs. On average, it costs Marley’s Mutts around $500 per dog in our care. This Giving Tuesday, we are attempting to raise $50,000 in an attempt to save 100 dogs. The goal is lofty but we have a great opportunity in front of us with both Facebook and Crowdrise matching funds for donations and waiving all fees. With the continued support of friends like yourself, we believe that we can save well more than 100 dogs this Tuesday. So keep an eye on our social media for your opportunity to give this coming Tuesday.
In honor of #GivingTuesday, Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will be matching up to $2 million of funds raised on Facebook for US nonprofits. Donations made through Facebook’s charitable giving tools can be matched up to $50K per nonprofit or max of $1K per fundraiser or donate button, until the $2 million in matching funds run out. The match will begin at 8AM EST (5AM PST).
Additionally, Facebook is waiving all fees for donations to nonprofits on #GivingTuesday.
Don’t miss out on this incredible fundraising opportunity to double your donations!
