FOUR PAWS vision is to end the brutal dog and cat meat trade in Southeast Asia which would save an estimated 10 million cats and dogs- often pets- from being stolen, trafficked, and killed per year. By expanding this facility, making room for more dogs, creating spaces for potential adoptees, FOUR PAWS anticipates many more lives will be saved. “As a proud cat dad to a rescue kitty, I love to see the continued impact of crypto philanthropy ensuring animal welfare globally: Huge thanks to the Pawthereum community for their support of FOUR PAWS to help to create a world where we all treat animals with respect, empathy and understanding,” Said Michael Earley, Head of Research & Nonprofit Outreach at The Giving Block. To donate to FOUR PAWS, visit their GivingTuesday page here, or with over 50 cryptocurrencies here.
It is a global movement born as an alternative to the consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday and fueled by the power of giving. The presence of philanthropy in the cryptocurrency communities is abundant. #CryptoGivingTuesday trended last year as the biggest annual occasion for crypto fundraising and giving and is the official start of #Bagseason, the fundraising season that runs the month of December and inspires crypto giving. #GivingTuesday and #CryptoGivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and this year is on Nov. 30th.
FOUR PAWS began accepting cryptocurrency back in August of this year through the platform, The Giving Block. The Giving Block makes it easy for nonprofits to accept cryptocurrency donations like bitcoin while also offering donors a more tax efficient way to support their favorite causes. The company works with over 800 nonprofits and aims to process $100m in cryptocurrency donations in 2021. “GivingTuesday is always a huge giving holiday for us here at FOUR PAWS, but this year is special as we can match this incredible generosity from Pawthereum,” said Claire LaFrance, Communications Director for FOUR PAWS. She continued, “Ever since we entered the world of cryptocurrency, we have been blown away by the community’s dedication to change and philanthropic evolution. The Giving Block and cryptocurrency charity projects like Pawthereum are leading the charge!”
