An Extraordinary Way to Raise Money for the Animal Rescue Fund

Thank You to Every­one Who Gave a Lit­tle Extra on Novem­ber 30th! Because You Gave, $20,400 was raised for the Ani­mal Res­cue Fund!

From every­one at the Humane League we would like to say “Thank You” for sup­port­ing our orga­ni­za­tion through the Lan­caster County Com­mu­nity Foundation’s Extra­or­di­nary Give! We are so grate­ful for the strong sup­port we received from the com­mu­nity, and the amaz­ing gen­eros­ity of all of the donors who stepped for­ward on Novem­ber 30th to make our com­mu­nity a bet­ter place! Because of sup­port­ers like you, $20,400 was raised to sup­port the Ani­mal Res­cue Fund!

Thank you so much for giv­ing some­thing extra to our ani­mals, that addi­tional gift means a world of dif­fer­ence to a kit­ten who needs med­i­cine, or a dog in need of sur­gi­cal care. Because you gave a lit­tle EXTRA, Extra­or­di­nary Things Will Happen!

Thank You!

Join the Humane League of Lan­caster for One Day of Extra­or­di­nary Give and Help Us Raise Money for the Ani­mal Res­cue Fund!

The Humane League of Lan­caster County is pleased to announce that it will be par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Lan­caster County Com­mu­nity Foundation’s Extra­or­di­nary Give this Novem­ber 30th!

The Extra­or­di­nary Give is being hosted by the Lan­caster County Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion (LCCF) and the event is intended to raise the level of knowl­edge about com­mu­nity ben­e­fit orga­ni­za­tions, such as the Humane League of Lan­caster County. This will be Lan­caster County’s first 24-hour online giv­ing chal­lenge. On Novem­ber 30th, donors can give online through Extra​Give​.Org and choose a Lan­caster County orga­ni­za­tion, like the Humane League, to receive their donations.

The LCCF will increase the community’s giv­ing with a $250,000 stretch pool, as well as $50,000 in addi­tional prizes for orga­ni­za­tions. There are a vari­ety of prizes given to those orga­ni­za­tions who, for exam­ple, receive the most dona­tions ear­li­est in the give and those who receive the most indi­vid­ual gifts.

Each orga­ni­za­tion receiv­ing dona­tions through the Extra­or­di­nary Give will receive a per­cent­age of the $250,000 stretch pool. For exam­ple, if the Humane League raises 10% of the daily total, we will receive 10% of the $250,000, as well as other pos­si­ble prizes! All dona­tions raised for the HLLC, will go to the HLLC’s Ani­mal Res­cue Fund!

Your EXTRA gift can help us save more lives by mak­ing it pos­si­ble for us to pro­vide med­ical care to the sick and injured pets who enter our shel­ter. We are will­ing to go the EXTRA mile for them, but we need your help to make it possible!

Meet HLLC Events Coor­di­na­tor, Joe Hess, on Novem­ber 30th, the night of Extra­or­di­nary Give!

Gary’s Extra­or­di­nary Story

 

Gary came to the Humane League from a hoard­ing sit­u­a­tion. This hand­some young kit­ten­was under­weight and ill. His eyes were swollen and painful from con­junc­tivi­tis and he had trou­ble breath­ing because of an upper res­pi­ra­tory infection.He spent almost two months on med­ica­tion and lots of time rest­ing and recov­er­ing from his ill­nesses. Today, he is a happy, friendly, and ener­getic young man! Best of all, Gary was adopted and now has a home of his own!

The HLLC was able to go the EXTRA mile for Gary, because of donors like you! Please con­sider, mak­ing a dona­tion on Nov. 30!

Flower’s Extra­or­di­nary Story

This sweet lit­tle lady was found limp­ing along the streets of Lan­caster. She was brought to the HLLC where the vet­eri­nary team dis­cov­ered that she could not bear weight on her right rear leg and her abdomen was firm and extended.

After blood tests and x-rays, it was deter­mined that Flower would need surgery for her right rear knee and antibi­otics for the infec­tion in her abdomen, which was more than likely caused by a failed preg­nancy. Flower came through surgery with fly­ing col­ors. She is cur­rently stay­ing with a fos­ter fam­ily while she com­pletes post-surgery phys­i­cal ther­apy. Then she will be ready for a for­ever fam­ily of her own!

The HLLC was able to go the EXTRA mile for Flower, because of donors like you! Please con­sider, mak­ing a dona­tion on Nov. 30!

Extra­or­di­nary Give At A Glance!

What It Is:

Lan­caster County’s First 24-hour Online Giv­ing Challenge.

The Extra­or­di­nary Give will be the Largest Sin­gle Day of Giv­ing in Lan­caster County.

On Novem­ber 30, they’re going the EXTRA mile for our com­mu­nity. On that day, visit Extra​Give​.org, make a dona­tion and they’ll stretch your dol­lars with their own $250,000 con­tri­bu­tion. Plus $50,000 in addi­tional prizes for orga­ni­za­tions and donors.

 How It Works:

  1. On Novem­ber 30, visit Extra​Give​.org from your com­puter, smart phone or device.
  2. Visit the pages of nearly 200 local orga­ni­za­tions and learn how their work impacts Lan­caster County.
  3. Make an online dona­tion (min­i­mum $25) to an orga­ni­za­tion (or sev­eral organizations!)
  4. Each orga­ni­za­tion then receives a per­cent­age of the $250,000 stretch pool. So, if an orga­ni­za­tion raises 5% of the day’s total dona­tions, they will receive 5% of the stretch pool. Plus any EXTRA money from the $50,000 in prizes!
