Help Us Reach Our Goal!
We have set ourselves a lofty goal of raising $60,000 for this year's Give to the Max Day! It is a steep goal, but we feel strongly that we have the right supporters to help us reach our goal. After all, it means more dogs going to people with physical disabilities and veterans with PTSD.
A Veterans Day Focus
This year we also focus on serving our veterans with PTSD: All donations received on Veterans Day, November 11, will be directed to supporting and training service dogs for veterans with PTSD. To learn more about what our dogs are doing for our veterans here is a short video of veterans talking about their life before and after the dogs stood by their sides.
There is so much to tell you. What else do you need to know?
The leaderboards have been split into four bracket versus three in the past. Helping Paws is in the medium bracket.
The leaderboard prizes have been re-distributed so now the top 6 organizations will receive extra winnings. This is good for Helping Paws!
All donations made Nov. 1-16 will go towards our leaderboard totals for November 16.
New this year are the $500 Golden Tickets given daily for early or scheduled donations.
There are still hourly $1,000 Golden Tickets and $10,000 Super-Sized Golden Tickets on November 16.
You can make donations through professionally managed donor advised funds or with appreciated assets like stock with the help of a professional advisor, and GiveMN can count these donations for Give to the Max Day.
The minimum donation is $5.00. There is no maximum!
If you have any questions now through November 16, do not hesitate to contact us.
