2016 Rattie Giving Tree
« on: November 25, 2016, 08:16:06 PM »
The Travelin' Rat's Rattie Giving Tree is now LIVE!
Up to three trees are set up to help participating rescues that have registered with The Travelin' Rat during 2016. These rescues deal with surrenders and hoarding situations and abuse cases all year long and we'd like to help bring some joy to them this holiday season! Any and every amount is appreciated. Thank you! <3 *If all 3 trees for a rescue are filled, the rescue will have taken in $975 during this fundraiser!*
Please note that there are donation amounts from $5-$100 on each tree, allowing for people to choose an amount that is comfortable for them. Plus, you can also donate a different amount (or one that may be taken on the trees) through the donation link beneath each tree.
*MANY MANY thanks to Shane Riley for his incredible work on these trees! This would not be possible without him!

Currently, the participating rescues are:
Charming Rat Rescue, Regina, SK, Canada
Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary, German Valley, IL
For The Love Of Rats Rescue, Walker, LA
MN Pocket Pet Rescue, St. Paul, MN
Mainely Rat Rescue, Falmouth, ME
Small Angels Rescue, Frederick, MD
Star's Rat Rescue, Winner, SD
Tiny Toes Rat Rescue of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM

Thank you for helping, whether through donating or sharing the info! Let's help these rescues have a great ending to 2016!

#Giving Tuesday is Tues, Nov 29!
#GivingTuesday is the perfect day to check out the 2016 Rattie Giving Tree!
There are donation amounts on each tree from $100 (the star) down to $5, plus other options for donating, including wislist links. After notification by the rescue of a donation, the ornament changes into a picture of an animal that is helped through this fundraiser. If a rescue fills all 3 allotted trees, they will have earned $975 through this fundraiser!
Thank you to all who participate in this fundraiser to help the rescues have a happy holiday, and many, many thanks to Shane Riley for designing and maintaining the trees! <3
Eight rescues are currently participating in this event*:
Tiny Toes Rat Rescue of New Mexico
Star's Rat Rescue
Small Angels Rescue
Mainely Rat Rescue
MN Pocket Pet Rescue
For The Love Of Rats Rescue
Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary
Charming Rat Rescue
*Rescues with US 501(c)(3) status are noted on the Giving Tree site. You can check each rescue's website, irs.gov, or Guidestar.gov for tax-deductibility information.

Please remember those who don't have homes and rely on donations to help with food and vet care. There are so many rats and other small critters in rescues that need help. ANY amount is appreciated by the rescues!

Shane Riley has generously set up Rattie Giving Trees for The Travelin' Rat's participating rescues. The trees are meant to be a fun- and easy- way to help the rescues have a great ending to 2016. Donations on the trees start at $5 and go up to $50, and the star is $100. There is also a way to donate other amounts or items off of a rescue's wishlist. Once Shane is notified by the rescue of the donation, the ornament will be flipped to reveal an animal being helped by your generosity. Some people have donated larger amounts to a certain rescue, others have donated smaller amounts to all the rescues. Whether you can help by donating to one or several rescues, any amount, we thank you! If you can't help by donating, please don't forget how helpful sharing on social media is! If you need a tax-deductible receipt, those rescues that can issue one are noted on the site.

The site where you can choose which rescue's trees to donate to is here:
ttrgivingtree.com
 
There are now 10 participating rescues in the 2016 Rattie Giving Tree fundraiser:
Charming Rat Rescue, Regina, SK, CANADA
Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary, German Valley, IL
For The Love Of Rats Rescue, Walker, LA
MN Pocket Pet Rescue, St. Paul, MN
Mainely Rat Rescue, Falmouth, ME
Rattie Ratz, Clayton, CA
Saint Nicholas Mouse Rescue, Virginia Beach, VA
Small Angels Rescue, Frederick, MD
Star's Rat Rescue, Winner, SD
Tiny Toes Rat Rescue of New Mexico, Albuquerque, N

Thank you for whatever help you can give!

Rattie Giving Trees! It's Christmas!

Can you help with even a few dollars? Several rescues have almost all their trees filled, but some still have a fair number of ornaments on their trees (*please note that there is an issue with the Rattie Ratz tree- they HAVE received donations, but we don't know which ones or how many). We'd LOVE to see all the rescue trees filled and help the rescues have a nice ending to 2016! <3 Thank you!

Merry Christmas, everyone!
