And just like that it was December. I hope everyone is happy and healthy; getting together with friends and family we haven't seen in a long time.
We completed the custom URLs for each rescue in the pack, that way we can ensure that any sales from our products are attributed to the individual rescues on your virtual stores. Of course, if someone purchases the game or our products through www.dogsbondgame.com directly, we'll be dividing those out amongst all of the rescues - that way all participating rescues will get something no matter their size.
For December I've compiled the upcoming global hashtags and trends that I hope will inspire some of our rescue partners in their content creation this month. If you see a day and a global hashtag that you want to use, go ahead! Let us contribute our likes, retweets, and shares to you - just tag us using @dogsbondgame on any of your posts!

MONTH & WEEKS OF NOVEMBER GLOBAL HASHTAGS
Week of December 1: #PetSuffocationAwarenessWeek
As we are all pulling together and making many purchases, we sometimes forget that our four-legged friends don't read the packaging that bags are not toys. Share the awareness to remind people that they need to be cautious about where they put their shopping bags this week and even this month!
DECEMBER DAY CELEBRATIONS & GLOBAL HASHTAGS
Dec 2: #NationalMuttDay (again). That's right, another day to celebrate our Mutts. The Mutts that we don't know what exactly their breed makeup might be and they've gotten some of the best and worst traits from whatever their breeding. But we love them all the same, and we work just that much harder to give them good homes.
Dec 4: #NationalSockDay. What dog doesn't love a good sock to chew? Take a photo of some dogs with socks on. Socks in their mouths. Or maybe a giant stocking above a fireplace with their name on it?
Dec 9: International Day of Veterinary Medicine. No official hashtag for this one. For me it's important because, now that I'm living in Ghana, I've learned the level of healthcare that animals get is quite different depending on where you go. Take time to celebrate any international partners you may have!
Dec 17: #NationalUnderdogDay. Okay, this is totally us. We were underdogs on Kickstarter, and with all the folks who didn't exactly see us succeeding - we definitely showed them. Share with us your underdog tales!
Did I miss anything? I welcome thoughts, feedback, and of course ideas on how I might be able to build this into a greater resource for rescues! Have a great December and if I don't hear from you a very Happy New Year!
