Valentine’s Day is a great time for nonprofits to ask supporters to show them some love. These four organizations made Valentine’s Day special for their donors. Their campaigns perfectly capture the spirit of this most romantic holiday. Get ready for a dose of the warm and fuzzies!

What says love better than getting a visit from a puppy?

Last year, one of our customers, Brother Wolf Animal Rescue, made it possible to send your sweetheart a puppygram. For a donation, your loved ones got a puppy brought to their home or office on Valentine’s Day. Not only do they get quality cuddle time with an adoptable puppy, the gift benefits adoptable animals in Brother Wolf Animal Rescue’s care! Want to see the results of last year’s puppygrams? Here’s a link to their post-puppygram Facebook photo gallery.

Okay, one thing says love better than a puppy: Lots of puppies!

Another customer, the Human Society of the Pikes Peak Region, made cuddle time with puppies an event rather than a brief, but satisfying moment with a single puppy. Four years ago, they set up a puppy kissing booth. Donors could take their loved ones to the kissing booth for a bunch of puppy cuddles! Their adoptable puppies were eager to give kisses to one and all. Of course, this event not only made for wonderful Valentine’s Day dates, it supported many animals up for adoption at their rescue! The best part, though? The Facebook photo gallery showing off all those sweet puppy kisses!

Puppies not your thing? (Blasphemy!) This nonprofit makes giving flowers even better!

The Just Heart Foundation, a customer providing grants to families with hospitalized children, partnered with a florist for Valentine’s Day this year. Now, you can send your significant other a bouquet of fresh flowers with the bonus of helping families facing the stress of medical bills. By teaming up with Bloom With Jenna, a Snellville, Georgia florist, the Just Heart Foundation will receive a portion of the cost of every Give Back Bouquet order made in February. Your gift of flowers becomes a gift to families in need. The Just Heart Foundation picked a great partner who is willing to promote their cause on their business’s Facebook page. Take a look at the love Bloom With Jenna shows the Just Heart Foundation and those they serve.
