An anonymous donor has pledged to match donations made to Fearless Kitty Rescue for Giving Tuesday up to $10,000 -- the Giving Tuesday challenge starts November 15th and ends at midnight the Tuesday immediately after Thanksgiving – November 30. All donations received during that time frame will be matched up to that amount.
Kim Kamins, President & CEO of Fearless Kitty Rescue, said, “We couldn’t have asked for a better gift for the kitties to be thankful for during this Holiday Season. COVID has continued to be hard on all of us this year -- until recently, it limited our ability to hold in-person fundraising events which has impacted our bottom line. We have also been faced with several kitties having very serious medical issues which required significant expenditures to address. November donations along with this anonymous match will be a real lift for us.”
Kim went on to say that the new goal for FKR is to save 300+ kitties each year and the funds raised during this challenge will go towards the medical care that they need – spaying and neutering, dental and other medical expenses. So far in 2021, Fearless Kitty Rescue has taken in 303 kitties and there are still more coming in weekly.
For those who want to join the Fearless Kitty Rescue Tuesday Challenge there are several ways to donate between November 15th and the 30th:
- Mail:Fearless Kitty Rescue, 16832 Avenue of the Fountains, Fountain Hills, AZ 85268 – if mailing make sure to get it postmarked to arrive by November 30th
- Mail Slot: drop an envelope in the mail slot on the wall at the Rescue
- On the website: www.fearlesskittyrescue.org
Fearless Kitty Rescue will have a fundraising meter in the window of the Rescue so all can track progress to the goal of $20,000 in donations during the specified time . If that goal is achieved, it will provide much needed funding for the start of the new year of saving cats and kittens!
