Little Dog Social Media Raises Over $1600 for Local Causes in 2019
Little Dog Social Media has always been a civically-minded company. We’ve held canned-food drives, collected items for rescue dogs, and participated in Breast Cancer Awareness Month activities for years! In 2018, our focus on giving shifted when one of our very own was in need. Two years ago, one of Little Dog’s employees was diagnosed with a brain tumor and took needed time away to undergo treatment. As a tight-knit work family, we felt it was important to support our fellow Little Dogger in any way we could. Together, we set a plan to host a weekly lunch on Wednesdays that became a fundraiser to off-set her needs during recovery. Each week, a person in the office volunteered to sponsor a lunch for the entire staff. Anyone who ate the weekly lunch donated $5 towards her costs. Thankfully, our friend and coworker was able to return to work in good health in early 2019!
Once we no longer had a Little Dog family member in need, we realized how much we enjoyed the opportunity to give back, and share a meal with our colleagues. Wednesday lunches became an office tradition! At the beginning of 2019, everyone had a chance to share a charity they felt was worthy of our giving. Together, the staff chose these six organizations:
- Allegany County Animal Shelter
- The Ark of Hope Rescue
- Union Rescue Mission
- Disabled American Veterans
- Family Crisis Resource Center
- Western Maryland Food Bank
We’re proud that our staff donated a total of $1683.00 to these causes in 2019! We love giving directly to the community we live in. It’s been such a rewarding experience to grow our charitable giving from an annual or quarterly offering, to a weekly one! Great job, #TeamLittleDog! We can’t wait to see what 2020 brings!
