The Kokomo Humane Society is gearing up for #GivingTuesday on Dec. 3. This social media event is always held on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely-recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
For many individuals, #GivingTuesday is the kick off of the giving season and has been inspiring people worldwide to collaborate and give back to causes they truly cherish.
“This has been a wonderful year for the Kokomo Humane Society. With the completion of a full year in our new facility it has been possible to vary our focus from operations and begin introducing new programing,” said Executive Director Karen Wolfe. “While we are always looking for support to keep the shelter running, we are also excited to offer new engagement opportunities. Some of these programs include ‘Doggie Day Out,’ ‘Lunch on a Leash,’ and the many fun events held at the Cat Café. The Kokomo Humane Society is seeking community support this #GivingTuesday to help with operational costs and program expenses.”
This year, the campaign goal is to raise $5,000 between Dec. 3 and Dec. 17, and an anonymous donor has promised to match the $5,000 when the goal is met.
Another way to help is to share posts from the humane society Facebook and Instagram pages.
“We are so excited to once again be part of #GivingTuesday. Last year we were able to achieve our goal, and we are so thankful for our wonderful supporters,” said Wolfe. “We hope our loyal supporters step up once again and continue to help us in the pursuit of our mission.”
