Have you heard of this new “thing”? It’s like Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, and I LOVE the idea. It’s no secret I think our society is a little too wrapped up in itself so the fact that this new movement makes it “cool” to give to good causes is just pure awesomesauce in my opinion! Here is a link to the official site where all of the official partners are listed. Peruse through and see if one jumps out at you then click the link to donate to them! Easy-peasy.
But wait! You guys know me well enough to know I’m always a fan of the little guy, so of course I’m going to include links to some smaller organizations that I personally know of and feel 100% confident supporting:
Allen Babcock Rescue – This is a fantastic Florida rescue whose entire mission is to take in what are generally deemed as “unadoptable” animals. They have taken more than one dog from the tiny Animal Control I used to volunteer with, who would have otherwise been put down, and given them fantastic lives.
V.O.C.A.L. – This is another rescue from Tallahassee, FL that works to help build fences to get dogs off chains. I have more than one friend that volunteers with them and they are a fantastic group that is really working to make a difference in the lives of animals.
Be The Solution – Can’t say enough good things about this Tallahassee group either. They work to educate the public as well as provide financial assistance to pet owners that could not otherwise afford to alter their animal. I’ve personally worked with them more than once and they are fantastic! “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” I couldn’t agree more!
(Psssst, even $1 makes a difference. If 1,000 people that felt they couldn’t afford to share, skipped buying a pack of gum at the convenience store and donated that $1 instead, that’s $1,000!)
