Helsinki Animal protection foundation, Helsingin Eläinsuojeluyhdistys (HESY), announced that their Christmas fundraising tumbled compared to other years. Helsingin Uutiset writes, that the amount got more than doubled. Total amount was 61 220€, from which 50 000€ was given from internet.
Also people bring 71 kg of dog food and 105 kg of cat food to the collection points. Along food, people bring toys, anthelmintics and other goods for animals.
Instead of buying just something to your nearest people, it's a good way to put this money to animal protection. And obviously many people have done so.
Good news! My heart melts <3
