In this challenging time, few things are certain. But there’s one fact you can still rely on: accredited zoos and aquariums remain committed to their animals, community and the fight to save species from extinction.
As part of the #GivingTuesdayNow initiative created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re calling on our friends and neighbors to contribute to these treasured community institutions on Tuesday, May 5. Can we count on you?
We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, charities, families, businesses, community centers and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
#GivingTuesday was founded in 2012 by New York’s 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation. Together, with a team of influencers and founding partners, they launched a global movement that has engaged over 30,000 organizations worldwide. For more information, visit GivingTuesday.org.
