FFN is gearing up for #GivingTuesday!
by Laura Strathdee
As readers of this newsletter may know, #GivingTuesday is a dedicated day of giving back to organizations around the world following Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It harnesses the power of social media and the generosity
of people worldwide to bring real change to our communities and around the globe. In 2017, #GivingTuesday is on Tuesday, 28 November and FFN is taking the opportunity to raise money to support our feral colonies and our foster / adoption program in Stratford & Perth County.
Why donate on #GivingTuesday? Thanks to the generosity of local businesses and supporters, donations made that day work harder for FFN – and offer bonuses for you.
FFN has lined up donors who will match donations made on 28 November dollar for dollar. Donate $25 and – puurrrrrrrr – FFN cats receive $50! Help us double our money by sharing our Facebook posts with your friends and family throughout the month of November.
And take advantage of the lovely perks these local businesses are offering to anyone who donates to FFN on #GivingTuesday:
A minimum $15 donation through Canada Helps on 28 November 2017 will make you eligible for:
- a free milk mintie bar from Chocolate Barrs
- $20 off a batch of wine at Bell’s Winery
- a free large fries at Boomer’s Gourmet Fries
- 15% off all services (excluding registered massage therapy) at the Spa Near the Tracks
- free single serving of hot chocolate or flavoured coffee from the Buzz Stop
A donation of $50 or more entitles you to 20% off all regular-priced merchandise at Nectar.
All these offers are good through the month of December. To take advantage, simply print out and present your Canada Helps receipt.
The fundraising committee is still working on these special offers so watch the FFN Facebook page for all the latest updates.
And, finally, to recognize and thank those people or businesses who donate $100 or more, we’ll take your picture – complete with cat ears and a #GivingTuesday sign – to share on social media and in an upcoming
issue of cat tales.
We hope you’ll kick off the holiday season by donating to FFN on #GivingTuesday, 28 November 2017. To make a donation online, visit the Canada Helps web site at: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/feline-friends-network-of-stratford/
Together we can make this #GivingTuesday an amazing one – and help more cats in need!
