The Holiday Season is almost over, but there is Still Time to Give to Animals (and Cats) in Need!
I was notified about this charity initiative the other day, and I must say it sounds wonderful. It is also fresh in my mind because the Michigan Humane Society also did the “Twelve days of Catmas” which I found entertaining and emotional, as I hope those cats have now found a home.
Until the end of December, there is charity initiative going on to help the Michigan Humane Society. MOBIBO, a locally created mobile app that sends you deal and discounts (think mobile coupons) in the Southeast Michigan area, has partnered up with the MHS in order to create a donation initiative to their cause, which they are calling “Download to Donate”.
Until December 31st at midnight, every free download of the MOBIBO mobile app will count as a .25 cent donation to the Michigan Humane Society. There is no limit to how much MOBIBO will donate and you get paid .25 cents to view each discount and deal from MOBIBO. That’s right cat lovers and followers, a free mobile app download will count as a donation to the MHS and you can get paid to use it. What a great idea!
The Michigan Humane Society needs your help in raising donation funds so they can continue to provide their services to animals in need, especially during this cold holiday season. Here are a couple quick facts about the Michigan Humane Society that were given to me:
· The Michigan Humane Society is the oldest and largest animal welfare organization in the state of Michigan.
· They care for more than 100,000 animals each year through life-saving programs and services, so you know their plate is full this holiday season.
· The MHS has reached their goal of 100% adoption rate the past two years, each year finding homes for 10,000 animals and reuniting 1,200 people with lost animals.
· They receive no government funding, so it is up to charitable donations (such as this one) that keep them operating and providing their services.
So if you have an extra minute this holiday season, and we know we all do, take a moment and go to your local Android market or iTunes store to download the MOBIBO app. The money they will donate will help provide services such as educating children about respect for animals, staffing workers to operate an animal cruelty hotline, providing emergency rescue services 365 days a year, funding rehabilitation clinics for stray and abused animals, and so much more.
