Thank YOU for Making #GivingTuesdayNow a Success!

#GivingTuesdayNow was a new global day of giving and unity that took place on May 5, 2020, as an emergency response to the overwhelming need caused by COVID-19.

This new day of giving was an opportunity for people around the world to stand together in unity to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and heal. And you did stand together for people, pets, and the planet. Big time.

“Thank YOU!”

Due to the coronavirus, most animal shelters have been forced to either shutter their doors or operate with significantly reduced staff. Food and supplies are severely limited. With all of the unknown variables surrounding this virus, homeless pets are an especially vulnerable population.

Yesterday YOU stepped up in overwhelming fashion, blowing our funding goal out of the water to provide essential food, supplies, and medical care for shelter pets in need. Thanks to your donations, so many shelter pets will now be saved.

As a result of the pandemic, a new generation of Americans from all walks of life is suffering, experiencing food insecurity for the first time. With unemployment numbers shattering all records, this could be your neighbor, your best friend, a dear relative, or even yourself visiting food pantries only to find many of them bare.

Yesterday we asked you to support these Americans, and you came through again!

Because of YOU, over 3,000 people will have meals to eat when otherwise they would not. Thank you for your selflessness!

We are responding to the urgent need created by COVID-19 by providing relief grants to sustain affected environmental organizations. We’ve saved thousands of elephants and other wildlife, and are protecting critical habitat around the world, but the need doesn’t stop there.

That’s why we asked for your help yesterday, and you exceeded all expectations in a major way! Because of you, critical habitats and wildlife in need will be saved.

Your support and generosity never cease to amaze and inspire us. Everyone has the power to change the world, and YOU proved that yesterday! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
