Donate your birthday to MEOW co. and help save orphaned kitties!
Your family and friends probably all know that you are very passionate about animals. But do you really need another “everything tastes better with cat hair” mug? We didn’t think so!
Create a personal fundraising page on Facebook and share it with your family and friends to let them know that this year, in lieu of gifts, you would like them to donate to the MEOW co. Cat Shelter. You can personalize your Facebook Campaign page with your own message and pictures. Every dollar you raise through your page furthers the MEOW co.’s groundbreaking work with neonate kittens and helps us get closer to being a No-Kill state.
As a thank you for donating your birthday to kitties, we want to send you a gift! Raise $200+ and you will receive a free Team MEOW T-shirt in the mail.
When you join Team MEOW you’ll gain access to our complimentary toolkit to help you host fundraiser events so you can meet your goal! The toolkit includes printable items like flyers and decorations as well images that can be shared on social media. Get started today!
Why should I fundraise?
We hope you take advantage of this opportunity to make a difference in the lives of homeless, abused and injured kitties. When you fundraise for the MEOW co. Cat Shelter, not only are you raising crucial funds to support our life-saving programs and initiatives, but you are also spreading awareness of MEOW co.’s mission to save orphaned cats & kittens from “Put to Sleep” lists in government run shelters throughout California. And there is no fundraising minimum—a gift in any amount is much appreciated and goes a long way in helping our kitten friends.
What do I need to customize my personal fundraising page?
We provide a short message that you can use, or you can edit it to make it more personal. For example, you can share a personal story about an orphaned kitten in your life or why the MEOW co. Cat Shelter is your favorite cause.
We provide a default image you can use, or you can upload one or more of your own images to personalize your fundraising page. Camera shy? You can upload a picture of your favorite kitten too!
You also have an option to add any video from YouTube
Do I have to have a Facebook account first to start creating my fundraising page?
Yes, you must create/have a Facebook account in order to create your fundraising page.
Is there a minimum age requirement for creating a personal fundraising page?
Yes, you must be at least the age of majority in the state where you reside. In most states, the age of majority is 18 years old, however, in a few states, such as Nebraska, Alabama and Mississippi, the age of majority is older than 18 years old. Creating a page requires registering your name and contact information with MEOW co. If you are under the applicable age of majority, please ask your parent or guardian to register on your behalf.
Where do donations made through my online fundraising page go?
Online donations made on your fundraising page go directly to the MEOW co. Cat Shelter/Hospital. The donation amount will be shown on your page and 100% of the contributions will be attributed towards your fundraising goal.
