Give Dogs Like Levi More Tuesdays

November 30, 2021

Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement and a day to celebrate all acts of giving, hosted annually on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. The dogs at Meridian Canine Rescue are so grateful you have considered them as the recipient of your philanthropic efforts.

On this day, we want to celebrate YOU! Without you as a donor, follower, volunteer, foster, or adopter, we couldn’t have helped hundreds of families and pets with consultations and resources, found homes for our dogs, and kept progressing on their training and rehabilitation. You are rockstars and we are so excited about planning 2022 knowing we have you by our side.

On Giving Tuesday, your gift has more impact than any other time of year. Help us reach our goal with your contribution of any size.

Your Donation Goes Further on Facebook

Did you know that Facebook doesn’t charge fees for monetary donations all year round? And, Facebook is matching charitable donations made through their platform on November 30, from 8:00 a.m. ET until they reach $8 million! This is our preferred method of receiving Giving Tuesday donations.

You can also share your love for Meridian Canine Rescue by creating your own Facebook fundraiser for friends and family. No donation is too small, and sharing our mission with your community is an easy way to support us. Here are some ideas of fun ways to encourage fundraiser contributions:

Ask for Matches

“I need 20 friends to match my $10 Giving Tuesday donation to Meridian Canine Rescue.”

Propose a Challenge

“I’ll walk 1 mile for every $10 donated to my Giving Tuesday fundraiser!”

Share the Love

“Meridian Canine Rescue does amazing work in our community — please support them with me.”

You can create a default fundraiser, or customize by editing the goal amount, the end date, the title (we recommend Give Dogs Like Levi More Tuesdays), your reason for organizing the fundraiser, and even the cover photo. Personalizing your fundraiser will help you find even more success!

“Volunteering at Meridian Canine Rescue has changed my life. I cannot think of a better way to spend time with my community and of course rescue dogs. Whenever I was feeling down or sad, all it took was a walk with a dog to lift my spirits. Cleaning kennels and fundraising were miracle cures for the blues.  I am proud of what I’ve contributed towards MCR saving dogs and changing lives. Giving back has never felt better.”

Beth Neroda
Meridian Canine Rescue Volunteer

“MCR is beyond amazing and my family and I could not be more grateful for bringing us our boy, Taco (formerly Mo). We have been following and supporting MRC since 2017 and love seeing how much time and effort they put into making every single dog that comes through the most adoptable dog they can be. Thank you for everything you do!”
