Save the date – Join the Global Giving Movement 11.28.2017
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
This #GivingTuesday, Claire’s Place Foundation is partnering with Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to make your giving so much easier and more impactful. We are setting up our campaign so that ALL donations made through our Facebook page on November 28, 2017 beginning at 5am PST will be free of fees and will be matched up to $50,000 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Our “Donate” button on our Facebook page will allow you to donate and share in one simple click ..easy peasy!
Be sure to set your alarms to make your donation early as the matching grant only lasts until they reach their $2,000,000 limit. For those of you on the East Coast, you get a great head start.
We encourage you to share our Giving Tuesday campaign on your own page or even fundraise on our behalf with your friends and family by a simple click of a button. Go to our FB page and click “Fundraisers” on the left side of the page. It will take you to a site where you can choose to “Raise Money”, create your own Giving Tuesday fundraiser and share it will all of your friends and family on social media.
This is the biggest day of the year to show your support for your favorite charities. We hope you are inspired by our mission here at Claire’s Place Foundation and choose to make a difference for families living with #cysticfibrosis on the daily. We are always grateful for you, our loving community of supporters.
Stay tuned for the countdown to Tuesday, November 28, 2017 and get ready to GIVE!
