While COVID-19 grabbed all the headlines this Spring, stories of cats and kittens in the Valley who need your help keep piling up. Cat’s Cradle has got to go big this year for all these precious kitties, so we are pumped up to announce the theme of our 2020 Summertime Challenge!
You’ve heard of FARM AID and LIVE AID – huge concert events that raise funds for great causes? Well this year, we’re putting on a ‘rock show’ that will blow them all out of the water – CAT AID 20!! Everyone at Cat’s Cradle is counting on you to make some noise – crank it up to ‘11’ for the kitties! Help us guarantee $50,000 in matching funds pledged by an anonymous rock goddess if we can raise the same amount between July 15 and August 15.
COVID-19 has thrown everything into a whirlwind, bringing donations way down and impacting other aspects of our operations in big ways. As this email reaches your inbox, we still have not returned adoptable cats to PetSmart, we have a skeleton crew working with intake, and our downtown center is still closed to the public. We’ve also had a huge uptick of calls for spay/neuter and medical assistance help, and it’s currently kitten season. These situations make your donations absolutely crucial.
We know that we can’t stop our lifesaving work, so will you grab a mic, bang a drum, or strum a chord and join CAT AID 20, our mostvital fundraiser of the year? Every dollar counts and will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $50,000. No gift is too small, but if you can think BIG this year, please consider joining one of these featured ‘bands’ – our Summertime Challenge Sponsors!
You can mail a check to us at P.O. Box 2128, Harrisonburg, VA 22801, or you can use our online donation page by clicking the orange "donate now" box below (please select “Summertime Challenge” for Payment Category). And if you opt to give at one of the sponsor levels in the poster above, use your check’s memo line or the comment box on our online donation page to specify whether you wish to be acknowledged by name on our social media or if you want your gift to be anonymous. As always, thank you for your continued support of Cat’s Cradle!
