Give BIG Green Bay ended up with a record breaking $1.4 million of impact across 11 sectors and 40 of Green Bay’s nonprofit organizations!
Many, many THANK YOUS to share, as dog and cat lovers like you helped to generate more than $50,000 in support of HEA’s mission.
“Additionally, because HEA finished in first position with 543 unique donations, the animals will benefit from an additional $5,000 incentive. The portion of the matching proceeds from the Green Bay Packers Foundation have not been tallied yet. With our understanding of the formula, our best estimate is that this will result in another $9,000 (approx). Add all of that together and the numbers from Give BIG Green Bay that are helping to grow HEA’s mission will be in excess of $64,000!” – Marcus Reitz, HEA Branding & Development Director
These donations were made in 16 states outside of Wisconsin along with two countries outside of the U.S. (Norway and India were represented).
Reitz added, “The results from a giving event like Give BIG Green Bay help to change lives in BIG ways! You’re helping provide microchips, vaccinations, daily supplies, medical care, and a place to call home for as long as it’s needed. Thank you for being a part of this special day and a part of our HEA family every day of the year! We look forward to many successful Happily Ever Afters in 2019 and beyond!
Thank you for coming out as volunteers, business partners, Hour of Love participants, photographers, artists, musicians, and beer lovers. And most of all, thank you for being passionate about the well-being of companion animals and being a part of your community!”
BIG kudos to the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation, Green Bay Packers Foundation, Janet & Charlie Lieb, the JJ Keller Foundation, and the Bellin Foundation for sponsoring more than $300,000 as a part of this community effort!
