Three Ways to #GiveHope on #GivingTuesday

GivingTuesday, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving in the U.S., is a day when millions of people come together to support causes dear to their heart. It also marks the start of the Alliance of Hope’s holiday fundraising campaign. We work hard during this time of year to raise the funds that sustain our services to survivors throughout the year.

This year, there are three ways for you to support the Alliance of Hope.

1) Your gift can double in value on GivingTuesday (November 27th). PayPal and Facebook have created a $7 million fund, to match all donations made to eligible U.S. charities on November 27. Because of their generosity, your donation and funds you raise on GivingTuesday through Facebook may be doubled, and all fees waived. (this is really true click here.)

If you are a Facebook user, and want to help us make the most of this matching opportunity, please click here. We will send you instructions and a reminder before GivingTuesday.

2) GivingTuesday is also the official start of the Alliance of Hope’s annual “Be a Light” holiday fundraiser. This campaign offers loss survivors opportunity to share their story, honor their loved one, and encourage others to support the bereaved. You can create a personal fundraising page, or a team page to raise funds with others. There’s no minimum fundraising requirement. We are hosting calls for those who want to learn more about the fundraiser. Click here if you would like to attend on a call.

3) You can also help simply by making a gift. Our goal is to raise $50,000 by December 31st, to continue providing grief support to all who need it.

We welcome your support.
