  • Since I have been working for animal shelter as volunteer I do appreciate any tools that can help raise more money for helping abandoned animals. Social media has become not a great channel to get the homeless animals new homes! Great power point and great cause! I agree what you give is what you get and that doesn't just apply in social media but in real life too;)
    Thank you for making this available!
