Hi there! I don’t normally post on Tuesday’s but I made an exception for today. I wanted to quick let you know that today is known as giving Tuesday, the biggest fund raising day of the year for non-profits. Please remember to give to others in need as well this holiday season! In case you need some ideas these are two organizations that we will be donating to today.
The first is Vet Ranch. My husband found these guys through YouTube over a year ago. Vet Ranch is a group of veterinarians who provide medical care and treatment to homeless animals that otherwise have no advocate and they share their stories. While sometimes sad we love watching their videos and following along with all the animals they rescue. Vet Ranch was a no brainer to add to our list, we’ll be donating for sure!
You’ve heard me mention Beagle Freedom Project before, this will be our third year of donating to them on giving Tuesday! We’ve become a cruelty free home because of the awareness they’ve brought. BFP negotiates with labs across the world to release dogs (mostly beagles) and other animals to give them a chance at a normal home life. Especially after everything they have endured for vanity and scientific curiosity. Ultimately BFP is working to end animal testing. The organization uses the rescues to draw public attention to the plight of animals languishing in labs and to promote cruelty-free lifestyle choices that everyone can make.
Of course since we have 2 rescue beagles of our own, though not from laboratories, this cause hits very close to home. Tomorrow is a big day for BFP because they have a $100,000 matching donation grant challenge, so every dollar donated is doubled! I love to shop their online store too and my husband knows he can always easily find a gift for me in the BFP shop 😉
