“If you can’t feed a hundred people then just feed one.” ~ Mother Theresa
When the shop-til-you-drop days of Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone, kick off the season of giving on Tuesday, Dec. 3, by participating in #GivingTuesday. This national movement, in which the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund is a proud partner, encourages donors to make a generous gift to their favorite charity.
What is #GivingTuesday exactly? It’s a national movement during the holidays dedicated to charitable giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are synonymous with holiday shopping. The goal of #GivingTuesday is to encourage people everywhere including retailers, charities, online organizations, community centers, individuals and families to come together with one common purpose — to help others and incentivize ways to give more, give smarter, and celebrate the great American spirit of generosity through charitable contributions and volunteerism.
Every year, more than 13,500 children in the United States are diagnosed with cancer. But only 4 percent of U.S. government funding goes to pediatric cancer research. When you make a contribution to the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund Foundation on #GivingTuesday, the impact of your generosity will go directly to families tackling childhood cancer who are in dire need of financial, emotional and practical support.
#GivingTuesday is a simple idea. All you need to do is find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to join in acts of giving. Then tell everyone you can about what you are doing and why it matters. Click here to donate now to the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund Foundation and help local families tackling childhood cancer.
