Spare a Dime or Share your Time with Maui Humane Society this Giving Tuesday and Holiday Season

Pu’unene, HI (11/28/22): Maui Humane Society is announcing their $10,000 match campaign starting on Giving Tuesday, November 29th. Giving Tuesday is an annual celebration, occurring Tuesday after Thanksgiving annually, dedicated to nonprofits around the world.  Thanks to generous friends of Maui Humane Society, Mason and Trudy Williams, they have offered a $10,000 matching donation throughout the month of December, starting on Giving Tuesday. Your donation will go twice as far, saving twice the lives of Maui’s homeless animals.

“We’re grateful for Mason and Trudy Williams sponsoring an additional $10,000 matching campaign this holiday season. These funds allow us to save more animals that come to us in urgent need of care,” stated CEO Steve MacKinnon.

Your dollars will help save lives like dog Tommy Boy, who was struck with a machete 13 times. Your donation helps fund the emergency medical needs, like the emergency surgery including 350 staples and stitches he received to sew his body back together.
