HOPE Animal-Assisted Crisis Response (HOPE AACR) members across the nation are participating in this year’s #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Every year this event falls on the Tuesday following American Thanksgiving, so that day of giving this year is December 3, 2019.

Thank you for considering donating to HOPE AACR. Your donations and support will go toward supporting the organization in our mission to bring comfort to those affected by crises and disasters. Please know that we are an all-volunteer organization. Your contributions go directly to the work we do. Donations help in many ways, such as defraying the costs associated with training and certifying new crisis teams, developing training programs and materials, and helping to reduce the out of pocket costs our members incur when they deploy.
