With all the shopping activity that takes place the Friday after Thanksgiving, the day became one of the most profitable days of the year for retailers and businesses. Because accountants use black to signify profit when recording each day’s book entries (and red to indicate a loss), the day became known as Black Friday—or the day when retailers see positive earnings and profits “in the black.” As more and more shopping has moved online in the past decade, the Monday after Thanksgiving has also become known as “Cyber Monday” – and effort by virtual stores (and brick and mortar stores with an online presence) to further increase profit by promoting online sales as well.
This unusual year, it is likely that even more shopping will be online instead of in person, and we hope you’ll keep FFGW and our cats (not just the black ones) in mind as you shop.
If you make purchases on Amazon, please start by clicking the button below which will take you to “Amazon Smile” and select the Feline Foundation of Greater Washington as your charity. Then, each time you shop at Amazon, FFGW will receive a small percentage of what you spend – and the price to you will be exactly the same.
It’s a win-win — even for our cats that aren’t black!
