And the winners are…..

Over 7,500 people voted for 260+ Charities and donated in excess of $50,000 as part of Australia’s Animal Welfare Giving Circle.  And now the votes have been counted and we’re proud to announce the winners are (drumroll please!)

1st Place – $3,000 Prize goes to Life of Pikelet

“Life of Pikelet is absolutely delighted to have been announced as the 1st prize winner in the My Giving Circle Animal Welfare Charity Giveaway. This generous prize will benefit so many and give a much needed injection of funds to wonderful Sydney based charity “Paws for Thought Rescue”. These funds will help save lives and for this we are so very grateful to My Giving Circle and UBank for running this initiative.”

2nd Place – $1,000 Prize goes to Minton Farm Animal Rescue Centre

“We are all so excited to win second place! What a great way of getting supporters and  funding as well as promoting the wonderful work done by so many dedicated animal charities Australia-wide. 

Special thanks to Australia’s Animal Welfare Giving Circle and to UBank for this fantastic opportunity to help improve the welfare of our injured and orphaned Australian native animals.”

3rd Place – $1,000 Prize goes to Dolphins for Australia Limited

“We are absolutely thrilled to be the recipient of a major prize from MyGivingCircle. There are very few prizes or grants specifically for animal welfare. So we are incredibly grateful to Australia’s Animal Welfare Giving Circle and UBank for providing this opportunity, which really boosts our capacity to campaign for an end to dolphin hunting”.
