Warrior Canine Connection just wrapped up its most successful #GivingTuesday in history! Participation in the 24-hour, GlobalGiving fundraising campaign was overwhelming, as WCC’s Board of Directors, staff and a total of 211 community supporters all generously contributed to the effort; $35,331 was given in donations, along with $14,449 provided in matching funds and bonus prize money, bringing WCC’s total raised to $50,061!
If you’re not familiar with it, GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity.
Out of the thousands of nonprofit organizations participating in the GlobalGiving fundraising campaign, WCC placed third of all charities around the globe. Not only that, WCC was the most successful of all animal-related organizations that participated in the campaign and was the only organization that serves Veterans to finish in the top-200.
Our work is far from done. Today, more than 500,000 Veterans are suffering from the invisible wounds of war, and WCC’s unique form of animal-assisted therapy and placement of highly trained service dogs is proven to help Veterans in need. Help us assist our nation’s recovering Warriors by donating now.
Thank you to all of you for your support!
