By far, of all the Black Friday deals in this article, this one is the best and it doesn’t have anything to do with saving money. Instead, it’s about helping to care for the lives of animals. Founded by Driftwood Magazine and Heidi Ho Organics, Black Sheep Friday is a different, compassionate way to celebrate Black Friday.
Here’s how it works. Instead of shopping on November 24th (the day after Thanksgiving, Black Friday), volunteer at a local animal sanctuary or shelter. What better way to bring in the season of gratitude than with a day of helping rescue animals, you can hardly get more vegan than that!
Here is a list of participating animal sanctuaries, but you can participate anywhere. Please be sure to contact your local sanctuary or shelter before planning your visit, some organizations might not permit volunteers so it’s always a good idea to check first. Visit Black Sheep Friday to learn more.
And if you do volunteer, help inspire others by sharing your story on social media with the hashtags #BlackSheepFriday and #DoSomethingDifferent.
