After two days of shopping, a day to give back.
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) The widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
The fifth annual #GivingTuesday will take place on November 29, 2016.
Here are the top 5 reasons to give to Forest Animal Rescue:
- We are working with 16 other sanctuaries to rescue all of the animals from a closed facility in Colorado. This is the largest bear and big cat rescue in US history! Tony the tiger will have his new friend Zoey on-site before Christmas and are building their new habitats as we speak.
- The black bears at our sanctuary will have two more joining them from Colorado, Cody and Oatmeal by mid-December
- Roy the tiger will have THREE new friends arriving to join him at the sanctuary! Eva, Juanita and Natasha will be here before Christmas as well.
- We are building our Bob Barker Animal Care Building to ensure that all of the rescued animals at the sanctuary continue to receive the highest quality care in a peaceful sanctuary setting.
- We have finally completed enough construction after moving our entire sanctuary to our beautiful new location in 2013 to allow us to rescue more animals and expand. We are always looking for volunteers and are offering guided tours of our sanctuary.
