Giving Tuesday

You all know Black Friday….Cyber Monday…..but here is a day that we can all benefit from and get behind…

Giving Tuesday!

I just wanted to highlight a couple that are close to our hearts here at Crave…


Ladybird Animal Sanctuary

Ladybird Animal Sanctuary’s Mission:

Ladybird Animal Sanctuary is a unified voice for abandoned, abused and neglected animals in our community. Together, through a system of volunteers, foster homes, educators, animal lovers and exceptionally generous people, we aim to eliminate the unnecessary suffering of domestic animals in our local high­-kill shelters. Ladybird rescues cats, dogs, small animals and even farm animals­ and we never shy away from rescuing senior animals, those with costly medical issues and the so­-called ‘hard to adopt’. Through our success stories, we know that every life is worth saving and that a loving home is just around the corner for these deserving creatures.

Based out of Hamilton, Ontario, there is no “physical” sanctuary but they rely on many volunteers to foster these animals.  They also rely on donations to be able to pay for veterinary bills, food, and many other costs that are associated with rescuing the animals from high kill shelters.


Ladybird Animal Sanctuary has many ways you can give today; from monthly donations to super cute gift ideas for the holidays.   Please click on the link ‘Ladybird‘  to help sustain this much needed effort in the Hamilton area.

We would be remiss if we didn’t include one of our favourite places on Earth…Piebird Farm Sanctuary 

Piebird Farm Sanctuary

From its beginnings in 2005, Sherry and Yan have built a safe haven and loving home for many animals that were sure to face a life of misery and eventual certain death.  Over the last 12 years, not only have they resurrected a beautiful farm house into a Bed and Breakfast, they have built an amazing cottage for guests to stay.  The animal friends along with Sherry and Yan, are the ultimate hosts at this peaceful setting.  Home to goats, chickens, roosters, turkeys, ducks, bees and kitties, this piece of paradise shows just how these animals are meant to live their lives.

To keep this wonderful place going, please consider donating by clicking the link, ‘Piebird‘  There is also an online store if you are looking for some super gift giving ideas. Just click on ‘Shop‘  OR…how about a destination gift for someone…or yourself?  Booking is easy online for a stay at the B&B or cottage.

These are just a couple of places we wanted to share for Giving Tuesday.  We know there are many, many more charities that are helping people in need as well as other animal charities.  We hope you find one that speaks to you and if these do, that is awesome!

Happy Giving Tuesday!!!
