Every year we have Black Friday and Cyber Monday — and now, more recently we have #GivingTuesday, probably our favorite of all the days!
For Black Friday and Cyber Monday you can check out our list of pet lover gifts that give back to see if any vendors are running great deals. With these shops, when you buy a product each donates something back to an animal welfare group – so this is like giving a gift twice! A great way to spend your money on the 2 biggest shopping days of the year.
Then, when you are done shopping you can look around online with the hashtag #GivingTuesday to see how you can help your favorite charities on this special day! #GivingTuesday was created to engage people to be involved with their local charities – and while we wish this was an every day thing, even if you take action on this one day the impact could be huge!
The group at NeonCRM crunched some numbers and found that over 40,000 nonprofits raised over $168 million and that the average online donation was $154. Not too shabby for one day. You can learn more about these findings at NeonCRM.
For 2017, CharityPaws has 2 special campaigns planned for nonprofits to receive a donation.
