#GivingTuesday is a new national movement celebrating the spirit of generosity. On December 3, CPL will join thousands of fellow nonprofits, volunteers, families, community centers, small businesses, large businesses, donors and more in a national celebration of giving. Individuals across the country will be showing their commitment to the causes and organizations they believe in by helping spread the word about their work and by offering financial support.
Whether you make a donation, share a Facebook post, send a Tweet, forward an email of an adorable puppy video, or simply share our story with your family, friends and social networks, you will help CPL achieve our mission: training service dogs and home companion dogs to assist individuals with a wide range of physical and cognitive disabilities.
“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill
