As we reflect on 2020, we are so grateful to all of our wonderful customers and viewers. We are also thankful to be spending much more time with our families and pets than in previous years, which makes us appreciate them all the more. For this reason, we felt it was the perfect time to celebrate our pets by partnering with two wonderful no-kill shelters in Atlanta, PAWS Atlanta and Furkids.
Until the end of January we are asking our Facebook followers to share our posts of our rescued pets or pets that are available for adoption. Our posts will include the hashtag #GemShoppingDonates. Our hope is to spread awareness for pet adoption programs and no-kill animal shelters by reaching our goal of 10,000 Facebook shares total. At the completion of the campaign, we will tally our shares - for every two, we will add one dollar towards a donation that will be split between PAWS Atlanta and Furkids Animal Rescue & Shelters at the end of January 2021.
Please, help us reach our goal by sharing our Facebook posts! Just like over 14,000 shelters nationwide, our partners will be using our donations to further their mission of placing adoptable pets in loving homes.
The two shelters we selected are:

|PAWS Atlanta is Georgia’s oldest no-kill animal shelter—finding homes for over 48,000 animals for over 50 years. We believe that people and pets bring out the best in each other. Our mission is to build a community of caring, by people helping pets and pets helping people. In support of our mission, we offer services to the public such as pet adoptions, bi-monthly vaccine clinics, discount health preventatives, along with a pet food bank for owners going through hard times.||Furkids, headquartered in Atlanta, GA, is a 501c3 nonprofit charitable organization that operates the largest cage-free, no-kill shelter in the Southeast for rescued cats and Sadie’s Place, a no-kill shelter for rescued dogs. The Furkids mission is to rescue homeless animals, and provide them with the best medical care and nurturing environment while working to find them a forever home. Saving more than 5,000 animals each year, Furkids has rescued more than 50,000 animals since its founding in 2002. Approximately 600 animals are in the Furkids program today, in the Furkids shelters, and more than 400 foster homes.|

This program starts November 16th 2020 and ends January 31,2021. We split the proceeds between the two shelters at the end of January 2021.
*For every share of one of our Facebook posts that includes the hashtag #GemShoppingDonates made between November 16, 2020 and December 30, 2020 we will put $1.00 (One US Dollar) into the donation pool, the final donation amount will match the number of shares we receive up to a maximum of $10,000. Here is a link to the #GemShoppingDonates post on our Facebook page. On January 31st we will close this program and count all the shares and split the total between two no-kill shelters PAWS Atlanta and FurKids. Then in January we will hand deliver checks half the amount of the donation pool to each no-kill shelter
Terms of the program:
- The donation made at the end of January 2021 will be made solely by Gem Shopping Network Inc. to the selected non-profit animal shelters.
- Facebook is not responsible in any way for this program.
- Shares will be counted from posts made by Gem Shopping Network between 11-16-20 and 1-31-21 that include the hashtag #GemShoppingDonates.
- Shares will be counted one for each unique share. Every share creates a donation of one US dollar ($1.00)
- The maximum total for our donation is $10,000.00
- If the shares are fewer than 10,000 then the donation will match the shares number divided by two. If the shares are greater than 10,000 then the maximum donation contribution will be reached which is a total of $10,000.
