For most of us holidays are filled with the hustle and bustle of trying to see all your family, shopping, eating, drinking and generally being merry or at least giving it your best shot! It starts on Thanksgiving, maybe even the day before for some, and the holiday marathon goes straight through until New Year’s Day recovery. With the hustle and bustle aside, let’s talk about Giving Tuesday.
I personally like the holidays, I love seeing all the lights and decorations and I appreciate getting into the spirit of things with holiday activities and a few traditions. Most of the time I don’t even mind shopping. This year I think my favorite activity will be participating in Giving Tuesday. Although Swanky Kitty donates a portion of proceeds all year round, I will be participating in Giving Tuesday as well.
There are a number of organizations that I wholeheartedly believe in. I wanted to specifically mention the organizations that Swanky Kitty supports.
Organizations we support:
- Alley Cat Allies (alleycat.org)
- ASPCA (aspca.org)
- Feral Cat Focus (feralcatfocus.org)
- HEART Animal Rescue (heartforanimals.org)
- Humane Society (humanesociety.org)
- SPCA (serving Erie County, NY) (yourspca.org)
- Tabby Town (tabbytown.org)
This year I am choosing HEART Animal Rescue because they gave us our little Gherkin! What a great job they did raising this little boy until we were able to give him his forever home. These are all great organizations and I hope you too participate in Giving Tuesday!
