On Tuesday November 27, 2012, Morris Animal Foundation will
join thousands of retailers, charities, online organizations, community
centers, individuals, families and more as they come together to create #GivingTuesday. This inaugural, one-day
event encourages people to give back to their communities through volunteerism,
donations and advocacy.
In a time when consumer driven events such as Black Friday
and Cyber Monday have become nearly synonymous with the holiday season, this
brand-new national moment is instead dedicated to a simple, yet powerful
concept that we are all very familiar with: giving.
Giving Back to Our Best Friends
#GivingTuesday isn’t just about people. After all, humans
aren't the only ones who know how to give. Our animal friends give us their
love and friendship every day, so why not give some back? By donating
to us, you will help support science that is advancing veterinary care for animals.
Help #GivingTuesday Go Viral!
We're harnessing the power of social media to spark a movement on
this special day of giving – and you can help! Be sure to tell your friends about
#GivingTuesday on Twitter and Facebook:
|We have Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Why not #GivingTuesday? Join the movement now!

The holidays are always better with friends. As part of this
special event, Morris Animal Foundation has joined with Petplan, the leading pet insurance
provider and choice for rescues, shelters and humane societies.
To celebrate both #GivingTuesday and their two-year partnership
with the Foundation, Petplan will
be matching every $1 donated (up to $1000) on #GivingTuesday.
Our friends at ZuPreem will also be lending a hand by helping us spread the word through social media.
