Camden County Animal Shelter Seeks to Raise $10,000 on #GivingTuesday
Camden County Animal Shelter has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Make a donation to Camden County Animal Shelter to celebrate #GivingTuesday. Occurring this year on November 28, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the US) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
Camden County Animal Shelter is pleased to join the movement by participating in #GivingTuesday again this year and hope to reach our fundraising goal of $10,000 from donors and supporters on November 28th.
“It is rewarding to see how many organizations and individuals support our cause throughout the year and even more gratifying to see how many people take the time to give back to the community through volunteering, donating, fostering and taking part in many of our program operations on #GivingTuesday”, says Vicki Rowland, Executive Director of Camden County Animal Shelter. “The compassion and support of the community helps us care for over 350 homeless animals every day.”
92Y − a cultural center in New York City that, since 1874, has been bringing people together around its core values of community service and giving back − conceptualized #GivingTuesday as a new way of linking individuals and causes to strengthen communities and encourage giving. In 2016, the fifth year of #GivingTuesday, millions of people in 98 countries came together to give back and support the causes they believe in. Over $177 million was raised online to benefit a tremendously broad range of organizations, and much more was given in volunteer hours, donations of food and clothing, and acts of kindness.
“We have been incredibly inspired by the generosity in time, efforts and ideas that have brought our concept for a worldwide movement into reality,” said Henry Timms, founder of #GivingTuesday and executive director of 92Y. “As we embark on our sixth year of #GivingTuesday, we are encouraged by the early response from partners eager to continue making an impact in this global conversation.”
