Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become National Days of Shopping. Giving Tuesday is an opportunity to focus on giving back – with iGive your favorite organization and some groups, like American Humane, are looking to make giving even more powerful.

American Humane, the country’s first national humane organization and the first to serve since 1877 in the protection of animals, is participating in this global day of giving back and is encouraging animal lovers to double their impact through a two-for-one matching grant up to $200,000, thanks to a generous gift from internationally renowned philanthropist Lois Pope, a longtime supporter of American Humane.

The organization’s goal is to raise $15,000 in just 24 hours. Contributions made on #GivingTuesday will support their work providing lifesaving help for animals during natural disasters, preventing animal cruelty, finding ways to help more of the 6-8 million animals relinquished to shelters each year, saving lives at both ends of the leash by training shelter dogs to be service dogs for veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress, and so much more.

If you select American Humane when you shop online through iGive your online purchases will help support their efforts- if you have another cause, large or small that you wish to support search and see if they are part of the iGive database. If they are not, simply add them. All causes large and small are welcome. Visit iGive.com for more details.
