#WeGiveTheyLive Corporate Holiday Giving Challenge
This year, PAWS Chicago is challenging companies across Chicagoland to turn their holiday festivities into a life-saving effort for animals. By hosting your own office fundraiser, you can compete for great prizes, bring your co-workers together for a common goal, and make a real difference in the lives of animals in need.
WHY DONATE TO PAWS?
With the dreaded polar vortex rapidly approaching, we need to get as many animals as possible off the streets and into homes. The cold weather means that more animals will be arriving at the pound, which means that euthanasia will spike. YOU can help save them.
THE GRAND PRIZE
The company that raises the most money will get the ultimate of rewards – puppies. Yes, PUPPIES! We will thank you by coming to your office for a play date with a couple of wiggly, waggly, cuddly rollie-pollie PUPPIES.
(Can’t have puppies in your office? That's okay. Win anyway and we’ll work with you to figure out your puppy date elsewhere)
How much is there to do with your dog in the winter? Not too much. UNLESS of course your office wins a dog-friendly party at PAWS Chicago! You supply the drinks, guests and their mutts, we’ll provide our brand-new training center (a beautiful warehouse rehab), cocktail tables, staff, and tons of fun for you and your pups. All for meeting a fundraising goal of $5,000! Don’t forget – your company’s matching gifts can count toward this!
NAME THE ONE YOU SAVE
Sign your team up by #GivingTuesday with a goal of just $500 and we will NAME A PET after your team/company (you can choose the name). Why? Because it costs PAWS Chicago an average of around $500 for each pet we take in. Therefore, your commitment will actually SAVE A PET. He/she will be thrilled to carry your name – you’re their hero!
