Giving Tuesday

December 1, 2020

For the fourth year in a row, our dogs and cats will lovingly compete on Giving Tuesday to see which species can raise the most money and win the day. Team #awsdog has won two years in a row so Team #awscat is hoping to take back the crown in 2020. Last year, our supporters contributed a combined $13,925 (!!!!!) to Team #awsdog and Team #awscat for Giving Tuesday.  Can we aim higher this year? Together, can we raise $14,000?

This year’s competition hinges around which pet makes a better Stay at Home companion. Who do you prefer quarantining with – dogs or cats? Your gift supports your favorite species’ team and contributes much needed funds for pet care right here at AWS.

Undecided? We get that! How can you really choose from the cozy comfort of a cat or the dedicated devotion of a dog? If you can’t decide, contribute to both teams equally! Or follow us on social media for some inspiration. All day Tuesday, we’ll be will be sharing many reasons why each species is the best companion. We’ll also have two special #GivingTuesday video presentations (virtual events) to support each team. Get the details.

Remember the team that raises the most funds between NOW and 11:59 pm on Tuesday December 1 will be declared THE BEST STAY AT HOME PET and as always, be given bragging rights as this year’s Giving Tuesday winner. Get your Team off to a good start with a donation now!

What is Giving Tuesday? GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give.
