During the holiday season, we have one day for Giving Thanks, and a whole lot of shopping frenzy! Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, pre-Friday Black Friday starting next Friday….

BUT on November 29, 2016, you have the opportunity to join people from all around the world who come together to celebrate generosity on #GivingTuesday.

What is #GivingTuesday?

In the same way that Black Friday and Cyber Monday kick off the shopping season, #GivingTuesday kicks off the giving season. It was created in 2012 as a global day of giving back and doing good for others. It has grown dramatically each year, with a total of almost $117 million raised in 2015, over twice as much as 2014.

What does this mean for our rescued goldens?

As Good as Gold is participating in the #GivingTuesday campaign and you can make a difference in the lives of our rescued dogs! Our goal is to raise $7,500 on November 29 to care for rescued goldens until their forever homes are found, and to add 10 families to our Golden Guardians monthly giving program.

#GivingTuesday is just one of many ways you can help. Whether you volunteer your time; become an AGaG Golden Guardian; purchase our 2017 calendar, wine, or candles; or make a year-end donation, you give the gift of love.

Be sure to watch AGaG’s website and Facebook pages for future updates!
