It seems that charities and non-profits are worried because the donations that usually come in before Christmas are not coming in this year. Winnipeg Harvest has received only one third of what it normally receives in December.
We are in the very same boat. Last Christmas saw a 60% drop in Christmas giving. So far this year we are experiencing a further 50% drop (to date the cats have received only 20% of what is normally donated in December). That is income from all sources -- fundraising, pledges and Christmas gifts. To be blunt, what has come in so far this month won't even cover this month's operating expenses.
This drop in giving comes when we are experiencing the highest demand for service that we have ever had. Today we have over 100 more cats in care than we had a year ago. Every day brings desperate calls to help even more cats. Without money, we have to say no.
If you can help at all, please do. No amount is too small. If you can network with friends and family to help the cats, please consider joining our Christmas for the Critters campaign. If you want to make a personal contribution, a donation to the campaign will be greatly appreciated! Without your help, this will be a very bleak Christmas for the cats. https://sna.etapestry.com/fund…/CraigStreetCats/christmas17/
