'We really rely on our donors.' Connecticut Humane Society hopes for Giving Tuesday boost

Many local nonprofits are hoping to benefit from Giving Tuesday this year, and the Connecticut Humane Society in Westport is one of them.
The Humane Society does so much to keep the animals happy and healthy, including much-needed medical care. But it's not possible without the support of donors.
The society is getting donations for food and warm blankets and other necessary items to care for the animals.
"There's so much veterinary care that goes on, and days like Giving Tuesday make all of that possible. So, we really rely on our donors and our friends and our supporters to keep making these fresh starts happen for these animals," said Susan Wollschlager.
Fairfield-based Save The Children says Giving Tuesday is one of their biggest fundraising days of the year. It expected to raise more than $1 million Tuesday.
"The two-year pandemic has given us a setback. We would appreciate any and all contributions to Save the Children to help the children in need," said Ettore Rossetti, of Save The Children.
Save the Children is not only taking donations on its website and by crypto currency, but also through gaming.
"If you are a gamer, you can game and entertain your friends and ask them to donate. And if you raise $1,000, you get this stream team hoodie," said Rossetti.
