Here are some great ways that you can support ASI!

Holiday Gifts

Share your interest in animals! Ask your friends and family to make a donation in lieu of gifts to celebrate your birthday, anniversary, wedding or Mother’s or Father’s Day! Why not celebrate your dog or cat’s birthday this way too?

Throw a Party or Host a Dinner

Think about throwing a cocktail party, an afternoon tea, or a themed dinner party, asking for donations from your attendees, and then donating the funds you raised to ASI. You can also ask a local restaurant to give a percentage of the funds they bring in one day to ASI, and then you promote the day over social media. You can even host a movie screening for an animal-themed film, and share the proceeds with ASI. The possibilities are almost endless!

Participate in a Sporting Event

Think about running a 10K or marathon, and asking your friends, co-workers and family to sponsor you for each mile you complete. Or host a basketball game or other athletic event, and ask participants and spectators to donate to ASI.
