On #GivingTuesday you can #DoubleTheHope
Collage is participating in a worldwide movement called #GivingTuesday. What is #GivingTuesday? It’s a global day that celebrates philanthropy, a day of giving in the midst of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, it’s a day to help us focus on the things that are really important during the holidays, serving and giving back to our neighbors and communities. It’s a day to give back.
For Collage, it costs $100 to provide an ultrasound appointment for one of our clients. Fortunately, we are able to provide these at no cost to our clients because of the generous support of our donors. But you can see how quickly those costs can add up as we serve both Grand Island and Kearney and even then surrounding communities.
On #GivingTuesday you have a unique opportunity to join us and #DoubleTheHope. A group of generous donors have pledged $5000 as a matching gift for #GivingTuesday. That means if you donate $50 on December 1st, it will be doubled and provide an ultrasound for one of our clients. If you give $100, it will double and provide 2 ultrasounds. If we are able to raise $5000, we will have $10,000 with this matching gift. That would provide 100 ultrasounds for our clients in 2016, making an enormous impact and allowing us to #DoubleTheHope for our clients.
So please join us. You can make a donation on December 1st at https://collagecenter.com/donate/. We want you to know that every donation makes a difference, no matter the size. If you’re on social media, we would also ask you to help spread the news about Collage’s #GivingTuesday campaign. You can find us on Facebook or on Twitter at @CollageCenter where we will be posting images and information about #GivingTuesday that you can share.
