GivingTuesday was founded in 2012 by Henry Timms at the 92nd Street Y in New York. What started as a simple idea to do good has turned into a global movement. It takes place every year on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving.
This year, animal shelters are overcrowded and in need of help due to an increase in intakes and a decrease in donations and adopters. People and pets in Ukraine are struggling to stay warm and find food as winter approaches. Veterans, children, and pets across the country need food and supplies.
Natural disasters, like Hurricane Ian, took a devastating toll on the declining bee population. Hundreds of thousands of bee colonies were destroyed and the surviving bees are struggling to find food.
GreaterGood’s mission is to help people, pets, and the planet. We are on the ground and helping those facing hard times, but we couldn’t do it without your support.
