Fur Kids Foundation has joined WyoGives – an initiative of the Wyoming Nonprofit Network – that is designed to bring the state together as one community to raise money and awareness for Wyoming's nonprofits. This 24-hour day of online giving takes place on July 15, 2020.
Because of the concerns with coronavirus (COVID-19), Fur Kids Foundation is concerned that we won’t be able to hold all (or any) of our events. This is heartbreaking because we won’t get to see many of our regular supporters having fun with their pets, or meet some of the people that we have helped in the last year. It’s also concerning because events have been our primary way of raising money, and if we can’t hold our events … we won’t raise money. That means we will have a harder time helping people afford emergency veterinary care.
We need your support more than ever. As you know, many people have been laid off in Campbell County, Wyoming due to changing national and worldwide energy needs and wants, and due to the devastating effects that COVID-19 has had on our national and state economy. This means that Fur Kids Foundation will see an uptick in people who will need help if their pet gets hurt or ill unexpectedly.
But we aren’t the only nonprofit in Campbell County or Wyoming that is facing this issue. All of us are. Local nonprofits joining us for WyoGives include:
And, there are more than 80 other nonprofits signed up in the state, and more are encouraged to join before July 15 … If you don’t see the nonprofit you support, please encourage them to sign up at www.wyogives.org.
Stay tuned as we will provide more updates about WyoGives. With this campaign, we will be searching for volunteers (like always), people to host their own fundraisers, matching donors, and more. If you want to learn more before our next update, please contact us at 307.363.1131 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to hear from you.
