Big Wi/d Project is a product of pure passion - created as a way to raise donations for incredible organizations that rescue, rehabilitate and re-home stray, abused, and abandoned dogs all over the world.
Throughout the year we select different organizations and donate a portion of our profits (up to 100%!) to help them do what they do best, save dogs!
We truly believe that with your help, we can make a difference & look good doing it!
We are always looking for deserving rescues and organizations to work with, so if you've got a suggestion, send us a message here!
Look Good, Save Dogs
Donations made to date: $4046.71
How we've helped:
-We made our very first donation of $133.60 usd ($182.70 cad) to Dallas DogRRR, in Texas.
Deciding who we wanted to give our first donation to was such a tough decision as there are so many amazing organizations – But this exceptional group takes on some of the most heartbreaking cases we've ever seen! There was one story they posted on Instagram in particular though that I couldn't get out of my head and that's when I knew, Dallas DogRRR was the one!
-December 31, 2019, we wanted to celebrate the new year with a little donation to Animal Haven based in NYC.
All donations made that day were being matched by a pet food company called MyOllie.com. We made a donation of $21.60 cad which was turned into $43.20 cad. Every little bit helps!
-This past year, we've been lucky to get to know some of the heroes behind CCRezQ's, who rescue dogs and pups from rural communities in Regina and Saskatchewan. At any given time they are probably busting at the seams with adorable dogs yet still find a way to work full time jobs, go on rescue missions, vet visits, feed, love, play with and find homes for them all and maybe even sleep a few hours! Not to mention hosting adoption events, fundraisers and more!
In November, they became a stockist for our apparel, which helps them raise funds for the rescue! So we donated an additional ten sweatshirts to help them continue to raise funds and be amazing! ($580 value)
-If you've read Our Story, you'll know that our founder, Rikki, spent quite a bit of time in Central America growing up, a lot of which was in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. PV became a second home to my family and will always hold a special place in my heart. Las Animas Dog Rescue (LARD ) is run by an amazing, super generous couple from Norway who moved to PV in 2004 - they rescued their first dog shortly after arriving and haven't stopped since! Thank you so much for all that you do! I hope our donation of $123.56 cad helps save a life!
-I think we can all agree that Covid-19 really sucks and has impacted the entire world in such a huge way! Earlier this year, one of the intake coordinators from New Hope Dog Rescue in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan reached out to us. She expressed that because of the pandemic, their rescue (like many others) were unable to host their usual fundraising events which along with donations, keeps the rescue running, helps cover vet bills, and so much more! So naturally, we wanted to help and donated $149.59 raised over the summer season to New Hope Rescue! Thank you so much for all that you do!
-We donated a "Tell Your Dog I Say Hi" t-shirt to the New Hope Dog Rescue auction. ($34 Value)

-We donated a "Definition of Dog" coffee mug, a "Tell Your Dog I Say Hi" keychain and a customized dog tag
set to The Rescue Chains online auction. ($53 value)
-For the fall 2020 season, we we able to donate $223.87 HugABull Advocacy and Rescue, in Abbotsford, BC.
Hugabull is dedicated to helping “bully breeds”, who are very often discriminated against and have a harder time finding homes due to their unfair and untrue stigmas! They recently took in over 20 new dogs from a cruelty seizure in Ontario (where they are illegal to own) so needless to say, they have their hands full - And we are so grateful for all the amazing, hard work they do!
-For our very first fundraiser collaboration design, we partnered with The Rescue Chain Foundation based out of Vancouver and Winnipeg. Together we released the "Lover Collection", inspired by Valentine's Day and of course, our love for dogs! Thanks to all of you, we raised $347.89 for The Rescue Chain!
-After adopting our pittie mix this February, we decided to reach out to HugABull Advocacy and Rescue once again for our second ever fundraiser collaboration! Together we launched the "Bulliever" Collection featuring the quote "Don't bullieve everything you hear". Thanks to you bully lovers out there, we raised another $306.58 for HugABull!
-We partnered with CCRezQ's Rescue in Regina, SK once again for our third collaboration fundraiser "Dogs Are My Kinda People". It was a huge success and we were able to raise another $2200!!
-Summer 2021 was a slower one for us but we were able to donate $75 to Small Dog Rescue BC, based in Langley! Their team is dedicated to rescuing dogs from kill shelters in the US and bringing them to BC to find their forever homes!
A cause so close to our hearts!
