Give Hope: New Challenge Raises Crucial Funds to Help Abused Animals

Give Hope: New Challenge Raises Crucial Funds to Help Abused Animals

UPDATE: Justice for Animals is matching all gifts, dollar for dollar, up to $35,000. Get started today so you donʹt miss out!

Did you know that more than nine billion land animals are killed for food each year in the United States alone? That’s why Mercy For Animals is on a mission to end the exploitation of animals for food—and you can be part of it!

Join our inaugural Give Hope to Animals peer-to-peer campaign to raise funds and awareness for Mercy For Animals’ mission. People across the country are joining forces in constructing a more compassionate food system through a fundraising activity of their choice.

Hope is our most powerful tool, and no one can take it away from us. We believe in a better, more compassionate world. When change will happen, or precisely how, we don’t know. And yes, we will feel sadness, exhaustion, rage, and grief along the way. But this points us to our dreams and fuels our collective faith in transformation.

 We find hope in the farmer determined to transition out of factory farming. We find hope in businesses adding more plant-based options. We find hope in people like you, who sign our petitions, gather in protest, make their voices heard by their representatives, and so much more.

 We are the changemakers who will speed the transition to a compassionate food system. We are the fighters with faith that our actions influence outcomes. Here, with you, we find hope and feel its power. 

Please join us today and give hope to animals.

Participating is simple: Sign up, create a fundraising page for yourself or join a team, share the page, and ask your friends and family to support your fundraiser.

Plus, right now the Justice for Animals Fund is matching all gifts, dollar for dollar, up to $25,000—but only until Tuesday, November 30. Get started today so you don’t miss out!

Fundraising Ideas to Get You Started 

Holiday Fundraiser: Share love and hope at your own peer-to-peer holiday party. Maybe host an ugly Christmas sweater party, plan a vegan holiday-cookie baking contest, or ask people to donate to your Give Hope to Animals fundraiser in lieu of gifts this year. 

Cooking and Baking: Food is central to our mission, and many of our omnivore friends simply don’t know how delicious vegan food can be. Teach friends and family to make an animal-free meal, or share recipes and cooking videos.

Unleash Your Creativity: Bring your unique fundraising vision to life. Donate your birthday, your anniversary, or other special occasion; honor a loved one; go on a mountain climb… The possibilities are as limitless as your creativity. 

Veganuary: Go vegan for a month, or challenge your friends to go vegan. According to one vegan calculator, a person who goes vegan for just one month can spare 30 animals. That is around one animal a day. Are you already vegan? Challenge your friends to go vegan for 30 days—coach and encourage them as you fundraise together. 

With Give Hope to Animals, you are not only raising crucial funds to support Mercy For Animals’ work but speaking up against cruelty and calling for a shift toward a kinder, more sustainable food system. We hope youʹll join us.

Don’t forget to check out the cool incentives you can earn when you hit fundraising milestones along the way. And make sure to tag @MercyForAnimals when you share your work on social media!
