You’ve heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but what about Giving Tuesday?! This holiday season, the SPCA of Texas has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that celebrates generosity worldwide! Occurring tomorrow on November 30, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, following Black Friday and Cyber Monday which kick-off the holiday giving season. This year, thanks to anonymous donors, all gifts up to $75,000 will be matched until midnight.
The SPCA of Texas invites the North Texas community to support the animals on #GivingTuesday through donations to help the organization rescue, heal and find homes for thousands of animals each year. It takes about $800 to care for each animal that comes through our doors. Whether it's $10 or $200, every dollar makes a difference in an animal’s life. During last year's #GivingTuesday, 1,179 gifts were made to the SPCA of Texas, helping the organization raise over $124,000. This year, the goal is $130,000.
Entering its ninth year, #GivingTuesday is fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that provides a platform for people to encourage the donation of time, resources and talent. As a global movement, #GivingTuesday unites countries around the world by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another. The SPCA of Texas is participating in #GivingTuesday this year to spread the word about the importance of adopting, spaying/neutering and vaccinating pets to serve the most vulnerable animals in our community and make North Texas and beyond safer and healthier for pets and people alike.
Show your support for the SPCA of Texas on #GivingTuesday, by donating at spca.org/GivingTuesday. All money raised will go towards the SPCA of Texas’ important mission to provide every animal exceptional care and a loving home.
