Nearly $35,000 Raised on #GivingTuesday!
On November 27, 2018 – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – NPH USA was again be part of the #Giving Tuesday Movement.
11/28/2018 UPDATE: THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who participated in Giving Tuesday! You helped us raise nearly $35,000! And this number doesn’t include the multiple open fundraisers being hosted through personal Facebook pages nor the support we received to our regional offices via mail! We are incredibly grateful for ALL of your support. TOGETHER, we are raising children, supporting families, and truly transforming lives.
On behalf of the 6,200+ children we support, THANK YOU to everyone who participated by making a donation, and sharing our posts and emails!
NPH USA is pleased to announce it has again joined #GivingTuesday. Occurring this year on November 27, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season. The goal is to inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities and give in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support, and help create a better world.
Frank Donaghue, President and CEO of NPH USA, states, “In the countries where we work, there is no Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Millions of people do not think about holiday sales or buying the latest electronic gadget. They struggle to survive. #Giving Tuesday is a wonderful way to remind ourselves that there are people less fortunate than ourselves who need help.”
In 2017, the sixth year of #GivingTuesday, millions of people around the world came together to give back and support the causes they believe in. Over $300 million was raised online to benefit a tremendously broad range of organizations, and much more was given in volunteer hours, donations of food and clothing, and acts of kindness.
NPH USA is grateful to the 97 donors who gave nearly $38,000 in 2017. That is more than the first five years of Giving Tuesday combined. We need your help to increase that this year, and invite you to help give joy to the thousands of vulnerable children we support.
