DO YOU KNOW HOPE?
Greetings!

This sweet girl has given us HOPE for the future each day since she arrived at Tenth Life. You can read more about her below and we HOPE you will.

BUT FIRST, we want to let you know that we’re running a little contest for #GivingTuesday and you have the opportunity to do something incredibly HOPEFUL with hardly any effort and it doesn't have to cost you a dime!



HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS
$10,000 WILL BE MATCHED!



We’re kicking our HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS campaign off on Facebook on #GivingTuesday because Facebook has teamed up with PayPal to offer up to $7 million in matching funds on #GivingTuesday . We want to grab as much of that pie as we can (terrible Thanksgiving pun intended).

We are thrilled to announce that we have ten new isolation kennels in a brand new intake room in the lower level at Tenth Life's adoption center!
Of course, that means that we have space to bring in new kitties more quickly and we can’t wait to be able to fill them with cats who need a little HOPE . But the only way we can do that is to raise the funds and we HOPE you’ll consider helping by starting your fundraiser on Facebook and earning as much as you can on #GivingTuesday to really maximize your impact to give more cats the lives they deserve.

The first 10 people to raise $1,000 for Tenth Life will
get to help us fill each empty kennel with a cat in need!

YES, YOU READ THAT RIGHT.

For each person who raises $1,000, we’ll select a needy kitty to pull from a high-risk situation. The donor's name will appear on the kennel and the donor will have the opportunity to choose a name for the cat, if desired. Together, we’ll give them the lives they deserve because that's how it's always been done -- as a team! That's ten more cats who will receive a TENTH LIFE this holiday season! And that's just the beginning because these kennels are a temporary holding space. The cats who move into them will move upstairs with the others once they're ready and more needy kitties will take their places.

Don't think you can raise $1,000? That's okay!

Anyone who creates a Facebook fundraiser that brings in any amount (or donates to this campaign, see FAQ ) by December 31st will be entered win "Cozy Comforts" like soft beds, blankets, and toys gifted in your name to one of the new kitties. Visit tenthlifecats.org/HOPE for details.

PLUS WE HAVE A $10,000 MATCH!
So every dollar you raise will be DOUBLED (or more on #GivingTuesday)!

BONUS! All HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS participants will be recognized but the individual who raises the most money will get their name on our wall and website for the entire year as a true beacon of Hope! Plus, we'll share all the hope you gathered on social media, as well.

So please tell your friends, spread the love and...

Be a hero for HOPE! 



With so much HOPE and gratitude,
Megan and the whole hopeful gang at Tenth Life!

Megan Fogliano, Executive Director
Tenth Life Cat Rescue


PS. While we encourage giving on #GivingTuesday, Tenth Life’s Hope For The Holidays begins on Giving Tuesday (11/27) and runs through the end of the year. Details can be found here .

MORE ABOUT HOPE...

Graced with the name Hope as she was being rushed to an emergency veterinarian, she'd been found trapped in an apartment that had been unoccupied for months. Discovered as workers began renovations on the third floor, her past is unknown. All we knew when we found her was that she was starving and absolutely terrified of humans. Physically and emotionally drained, she displayed signs of neurological distress, including having stress-induced seizures. 

While it remains uncertain how long Hope was living all alone in that abandoned apartment or how she ended up there, we are grateful to report that she is now happy and has learned to trust humans again. She has been seeing a neurologist in an attempt to figure out why she continues to have seizures but they have improved and she’s otherwise healthy and happy and loving affection. 

We are thankful to the people who found her and to those who got the word out so that we could step in and give her another chance at health, happiness, and HOPE.

We’re beyond appreciative to YOU, as well, for every time you’ve ever donated or shared our message to make rescues like Hope’s possible. We could not save cats like Hope without you.

If you’re happy for Hope, please consider sharing her story. Because when more people know, more people help. And when more people help, more cats like Hope will get their Tenth Life.


And that gives us HOPE.
