Give a gift that will make a difference! If you have a special occasion coming up; birthday, anniversary, engagement/wedding, you can show your support for Animal Aid by asking your friends and family to make a donation in lieu of a gift at the event. By organising donations in lieu of presents you are providing a wonderful gift to Animal Aid and adding additional meaning to your special day.

Wedding day donationin celebration 1

These days most couples have already set up their home with modern comforts like toasters, towel sets and tons of technology, so it's a wonderful opportunity to arrange for donations in lieu of wedding gifts to help Animal Aid find homeless pets their own comfy home. The bride and groom may also like to consider making a donation themselves, in lieu of wedding favours (bonbonniere).

You may like to set up your own wedding fundraising page instead of a traditional gift registry to make it easy for your guests to celebrate your special day. Visit Animal Aid's Go Fundraise site to create your page and click on 'Start Fundraising' to get the ball rolling!

Your guests will receive an automatic tax receipt via your email.

Celebrating your birthday with donations in lieu of gifts is the perfect way to add meaning to your special day! Let your family and friends know that this year you would like to make your birthday celebration an opportunity to help the thousands of animals in need at Animal Aid's shelter. Inspire your friends and family to show their generosity by showing your love of animals on your special day. You may even like to create an online fundraising page to share with your social networks. Visit Animal Aid's Go Fundraise site to create your page and click on 'Start Fundraising' to get the ball rolling!


The perfect Anniversary giftin celebration 3

As a gift giver, it's often difficult to find thoughtful gifts for your loved ones and friends, particularly for a special occasion like a wedding anniversary when you are buying for two! A donation to Animal Aid is the perfect alternative to traditional gift giving, and as a gesture of our thanks Animal Aid will send a card to let the special couple know of your kind donation. To give a gift that will make a difference visit the Gift Card section in our online store.

Alternatively, if you are celebrating a milestone anniversary and a party is in the works, you may like to ask your guests to make a donation to Animal Aid in lieu of the traditional anniversary gifts like tin (10 year anniversary) or china (20 year anniversary)!
