March 2nd is almost upon us, and the 86th Annual Academy Awards is shaping up to be the show to watch this awards season. But the Hollywood elite taking home Oscar gold aren’t the only winners this year.

American stand-up comedian, actress and Oscar host Ellen Degeneres’ pet food company, Halo, Purely for Pets, is working in partnership with Freekibble.com to give 20 non-winning Oscar nominees 10,000 meals of natural pet food to donate to the animal shelter or rescue organization they choose.

What a fabulous way to use the Oscar swag bags that were popularized as condolence gifts for non-winning nominees and filled with luxury products for personal use. David Yaskulka, Halo’s vice president of marketing communications, said, “We know many celebrities are extremely generous. So we decided to gift them with something different that we think will mean a lot to them. We’re looking forward to making those donations!”

The Halo, Purely for Pets, and Freekibble.com partnership donates more than 1.5 million meals to shelter pets each year and can add Oscar swag bags to its list of generous givings, promoting shelter animal love and altruism for all. We can’t wait to watch this Sunday and fingers crossed for a vegan-nominee win!
