We Are Making A Real Impact!  We have already raised over $43,000!
All Challengers Support Beautiful Together Animal Sanctuary

Donations support Beautiful Together Animal Sanctuary.  Our goal is to raise $50,000 to support animal rescue programs.
Beautiful Together is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2014. 

We rescue animals who have been abused, neglected or abandoned, giving them comprehensive care as we work to find them loving homes. With a focus on empathy-building and pet therapy, we connect animals in need of refuge with children living in foster care, at-risk situations or underserved environments.
Our goal is simple: To connect the vulnerable and the voiceless in purposeful ways that benefit us all.
