Please Help!!

I hadn’t originally planned to post today.

But I received an email from the Catskill Animal Sanctuary, which sparked me to action. This sanctuary is an amazing organization: it’s given over 2,000 formerly-abused animals a second chance at finding love. Obviously, places like this cannot exist without donations. And right now, if the Catskill Animal Sanctuary raises $1.5 million, it will receive a matching grant!

So if you donate now, your donation will automatically be doubled!! Please help them to reach their goal. I can personally attest to the worthiness of this group, as I’ve seen first-hand how lovingly they care for animals in need.

  7. How long does the donation doubling last? I can’t donate right now, but I could manage a little bit on my next paycheck! Happy new year, Katie! xoxo

    1. Hey girlie, you are so so sweet to want to help!! I think the donation match ends tonight, but they can ALWAYS use extra donations. And it’s such a good cause. (I’m always worried about donating $ to a cause I don’t know, so I like KNOWING for sure my money is going straight to the animals, ’cause I’ve seen it first-hand :).)

      1. Well I will definitely try to send some money their way when I get paid. Organizations that help animals are my favorite to donate to! :)

    Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention. I’m happy I was able to donate, but I’m bummed I didn’t know sooner – my employer definitely would have matched my donation! Hopefully I’ll be on their email list now. I sent the website to all of my friends and family. I’m praying they get the $1.5 million by tonight. Have a wonderful New Year, Katie!
