On Giving Tuesday, Turn Your Unwanted Stuff into Cash for Animals!

Tuesday, November 20, 2012 - 5:30pm

All over America, people are gearing up for the shopping and gifting frenzy that goes hand in hand with the holiday season. You’ve heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but what about Giving Tuesday? Giving Tuesday, taking place this year on November 27, brings out the best in us by encouraging us to remember those less fortunate—including the at-risk animals we’re working to save all year ‘round.

The best part is, it’s super easy to participate in Giving Tuesday, even if you’re low on cash. Just post your unwanted stuff to the ASPCA’s Web Thrift Store, where others can bid on and purchase your items. You set the price and get a tax write-off for 100% of your item’s value; the ASPCA gets 80% of the sale’s proceeds; and some lucky buyer gets a great bargain. It’s a win-win-win!

“WebThriftStore.com enables the ASPCA and its supporters to get all the benefits of running a national network of thrift stores without the costs and risks of creating one with bricks-and-mortar,” said WebThriftStore.com founder and CEO Douglas Krugman. “It makes sense for everyone—charities, donors and shoppers—and it’s something everyone can feel good about.”

So start selling and shopping, and help spread the word on Twitter with the hashtags #GivingTuesday and #ASPCA!

I have rescued cats from being put down, strays that someone dumped off and abused cats, they now live with me and will continue till I can find a stable home for them. I have already placed over 40 cats and still have 5 left that needs good loving homes. I can't afford to donate at this time, but I'll do what I can to raise funds for the other animals. I wish I could take dogs an puppies in but I'm not set up for them. Laura

I DON'T HAVE MONEY EITHER TO GIVE FOR DONATIONS BUT DO HAVE SOME DOG FOOD & CAT FOOD WE COULD DONATE ALONG WITH SOME LEASHES & COLLARS FOR DOGS TOO.
where could we take these supplies to? Hope Staten Island & New Jersey Hurricane Sandy victims will get back on their feet soon. My heart goes out to them!

I donate $20 every month to the ASPCA and I'm glad what I can contribute helps. I'm always taking in stray or hurt dogs,birds,cats,etc. I have a 11 month old pitty mix who showed up at my door last february during our last snow,hurt cold and hungry.Vet said looked like he we thrown out of a vehicle:(..He is thriving now and loves everyone and everything and would love a new permenant companion to play and run with but needs to get along with cats.We have a fully fenced in back yard and lots of love to give.So if you have a puppy or dog that fits all that,we would be glad to take him or her into our family.
