Giving Tower ASPCA help animals in need

First came Black Friday, and then was Cyber Monday…and today is Giving Tuesday — a chance to give back to a cause you care about. We know that as pet lovers, you feel as strongly as we do about helping animals in need and this year ASPCA has teamed with Crowdrise, one of the largest fundraising platforms on the Internet, to celebrate Giving Tuesday.

When you make a donation HERE, you’ll be supporting the important work of the ASPCA AND help build the Crowdrise Giving Tower, a large virtual tower built by donation “bricks” from generous people like you. You’ll be able to see the impact your donation is making in real time!

Donate to WWF for Mother's Day

Moms around the world take remarkable steps to protect, nurture and raise their young. Orangutan mothers stay with their young for six to seven years, teaching them where to find food and how to build a sleeping nest. A group of female African elephants will help a calf to its feet after birth and show the baby how to nurse.

Here are two easy ways to thank the mothers in your life while supporting wildlife conservation:

  1. Give a Mother’s Day Gift for Wildlife: Show Mom that you care! Make a donation of any amount to support World Wildlife Fund’s global conservation efforts, and send an e-card to Mom to announce your gift. She will love knowing that your donation helps protect species and wild places around the world.
  2. Send Free WWF Mother’s Day E-cards: Tell your mother, grandmother, sister, or friend that you care about her and nature by sending Mother’s Day e-cards. They are a fun and eco-friendly way to express your love and appreciation for all that she does!

In celebration of Earth Hour, Groupon is promoting a very special deal that gives back! Earth Hour is March 29 at 8:30 pm local time, and is the time that World Wildlife Fund (WWF) asks that you turn off your lights for one hour! Groupon is teaming with WWF by offering a $10 Donation Deal to the World Wildlife Fund!

Installing Solar Panels for Low-Income Families

All donations to this Grassroots campaign will be used by World Wildlife Fund to enable college students to install solar panels in underserved communities. Every $10 raised will support an estimated 10 watts of solar power, which students participating in the GRID Alternatives’ Solar Spring Break will install for low-income families.

The campaign’s goal is to reach $6,000, which—combined with solar incentives and in-kind donations from manufacturing partners—would cover the cost of one full spring-break project, including training materials for 10–12 students and the installation of equipment for approximately 3,000 watts of solar power for two families in communities served by GRID Alternatives. 100% of donations go directly to World Wildlife Fund. Donations are automatically applied.

Dahna Bender Christmas Music CD

Here’s a great gift idea that supports a fantastic animal cause! It’s a Christmas Music CD from Dahna Bender. This talented artist is using her beautiful voice to support National Mill Dog Rescue (NMDR). Profits from her Christmas Giving of the Heart album go to support the work and mission of NMDR to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home discarded puppy mill dogs and to educate the general public about the cruel realities of the commercial dog breeding industry.

I’ve been getting in the holiday spirit listening to the Christmas classics on this CD, including Silent Night, Winter Wonderland and lots more long-time favorites plus a few that were new to me.  Here’s the back cover from the album jacket so you can view the full list of songs:
