You may have heard of #GivingTuesday, which occurs in December following Cyber Monday. This year, we will also celebrate #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of giving in response to the impact COVID-19 has had on organizations and nonprofits across the globe – including Oklahoma Alliance for Animals. #GivingTuesdayNow is Tuesday, May 5, 2020.
To encourage participation on this day, while observing public health guidelines, we will be
- Encouraging our supporters and volunteers to share pet parent “unselfies” – pictures of themselves with their furry friends – with a reason they support Oklahoma Alliance for Animals and our mission on their social media channels.
- Sharing stories of how Oklahoma Alliance for Animals has positively impacted pets and pet parents before and during the COVID-19 crisis.
- Asking all of our generous donors to contribute financially – big or small – to Oklahoma Alliance for Animals. Thanks to a “Double Dog Dare” matching grant, all donations up to $2,000 will be matched dollar for dollar. Our overall goal is to raise $10,000.
We look forward to seeing how our community rises to this occasion to support our mission of reducing pet overpopulation across our state, encouraging responsible pet ownership and promoting the humane treatment of animals through community collaboration and education.
In times like these, let’s remember that the chaos and uncertainty will pass. Until then, we remain united in courage and hope for animals across our state.
