THANK YOU for Our Most Successful #GivingTuesday Yet!

Thanks to all of YOU, this #GivingTuesday blew all others out of the water for GreaterGood.org! All you need to do is have a look at the impact below to see how much good you made possible in the world on Tuesday.

  • We set out to break last year’s record of 4.1 million meals to hungry shelter and rescue animals. You blew it out of the water. YOU provided 6,693,200 meals for homeless pets, far exceeding our goal of 5 million meals! You made it possible for over 6.7 million animals in shelters and rescues to be fed. That’s a lot of happy bellies!

  • Our goal for care packages to troops was to break last year’s record of 3,660 packages. You blew it out of the water. In just one day, you helped send 8,064 care packages to troops this holiday season! Because of your act of kindness, deployed soldiers will get packages full of the comforts of home as well as a reminder that their bravery and service to our country is not forgotten!

  • In just one day, you helped protect 568 acres of habitat for endangered species! Because of YOU, critical wildlife habitat will be preserved for countless species on the brink of extinction to have room to roam, grow, and thrive.

  • In just one day, you helped provide 75 safe births for mothers and their babies in eastern Burma conflict zones! Because of your selfless donations, 75 mothers and their unborn children will have access to the Mae Tao Clinic’s lifesaving medical care.

  • In just one day, you made it possible for 10 girls to have a full year of safe rides to and from school! Because of your act of kindness, young girls will have the opportunity for an education as well as the feeling of safety. Your donations are keeping these girls in school!

  • And in just one day, you covered 50% of the cost to retrofit a domestic violence shelter to accept victim’s pets! Because of your act of kindness, victims will be empowered to save themselves, their children, and their pets from abuse.

We never cease being inspired by the power of your support. Everyone has the power to change the world, but YOU actually take that power and use it! Your acts of kindness humble us. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
