Welcome to Grey Haven
SUPPORT GAF THIS YEAR ON "GIVING TUESDAY"!
December 2, 2014 is this year’s “Giving Tuesday.” This is the day established to counteract overwhelming consumption and consumerism in the Holiday Season by keeping in mind those who really need your support. GAF has become a Partner in the 2014 Giving Tuesday Campaign and is counting on your participation. "Giving Tuesday” comes AFTER Black Friday and immediately AFTER Cyber Monday, but may just be the money you spend this holiday season that you KNOW will go to a cause you care deeply about, a cause from which you’ve directly benefited — a present that will never be returned, except in the satisfaction you'll get in knowing that THIS was money that changed lives.
“Giving Tuesday” began in 2012, and doubled in participation size last year. Think of it as a one-day Salvation Army Bell Ringer event to fill the cyber red kettles for a cause that means so much. Last year “Giving Tuesday” raised $32.3 million for some 10,000 partner organizations, with an average gift of $140. Organizations in 40 countries participated and the #givingtuesday hashtag reached TWO BILLION PEOPLE on Twitter globally!! That’s amazing…that’s one third of the world!!
HOW YOU CAN HELP…PLEASE consider a donation on December 2 to GAF…and/or a matching donation if you’re lucky enough to work for a company that offers this. And if you can’t donate, please consider taking an “UNselfie”…showing some aspect of how GAF has affected your life and POST THIS with your descriptive words!! Publicity is just as vital as the donation! Besides, we love seeing everyone’s picture of the special greyhound(s) in their life!

"Thank you" doesn’t begin to be adequate. GAF exists on the kindness and generosity of people exactly like you. And as I have said before, Thanksgiving is here…and it’s YOU I always give thanks for.
