Annex Cat Rescue is once again participating in Canada’s annual day of giving back to the community, GivingTuesday. It’s a day where charities, companies and individuals join together to share commitments, rally for favourite causes and think about others. More than 4,200 Canadian charities and businesses have joined the movement so far.
For GivingTuesday, Annex Cat Rescue is highlighting the selfless work and dedication of our 400-plus volunteers by encouraging the sharing of UNselfies. These spirited images showcase the many roles our volunteers play in easing the plight of feral and stray cats across Toronto, from daily colony feeding to medical oversight, socialization to TNR. Every ACR volunteer plays a pivotal role in our organization’s success, and we want to the world to know about it!
This year we’ve decided to focus on the gift of Time — YOUR Time. We hope you will join in!
Share your story on social media!
Why do you volunteer with Annex Cat Rescue? What is the role you play?
Have you adopted an Annex Cat Rescue cat who you love to bits?
You have something valuable to share. Talking to others about why you do what you do will inspire others to help Toronto’s homeless cats.
Today we encourage you to take an #UNselfie. It’s really easy to create one. Here’s how:
1) Take a piece of paper and write “Annex Cat Rescue” and something you love about the work you do as part of ACR to help homeless cats in Toronto.
2) Take your picture (or even better your cat’s picture) holding up the piece of paper in front of you.
3) Upload the photo to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and other social media channels and be sure to include the hashtags #GivingTuesdayCA and #UNselfie
Here is an example of an #UNselfie from Sara S., one of our colony caretaker volunteers:
