#GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back. Selected after Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday was launched in 2012 has engaged more than 30,000 organizations worldwide. On Tuesday, November 29, charities, families, businesses, communities, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
The Animal Shelter Foundation (ASF) is a local 501c3 nonprofit, all volunteer organization that supports homeless animals in the care of Tallahassee Animal Services (the Shelter). As a participant in the #GivingTuesday campaign, we are calling on our community to help us continue to save the lives of thousands of homeless animals in our community. Because of the generosity of the ASF Matching Pledge Doors listed below, your donation will be matched dollar for dollar up to $10,600 to reach our goal of $25,000.
On Giving Tuesday, November 29, ASF board members and volunteers will be on hand all day, from 10:30 am to 6:30 pm at the Shelter, 1125 Easterwood Drive, to receive donations for homeless animals in our community. It will also be a great opportunity to visit the animals at the shelter available for adoption. We will hold a Celebrate Giving Party at the shelter afterwards from 6:00-8:00pm to celebrate ASF supporters and the generosity shown on Giving Tuesday.
Please mark your calendars for this special event and spread the word in everyone you know. Be a part of #ASFGivingTuesday to provide homeless animals with a chance to be adopted into a forever, loving home.
