Why #GivingTuesday Is Amazing

#GivingTuesday is on December 2nd, and the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund is ready to see some amazing things happen!

#GivingTuesday is about AMAZING people.

#GivingTuesday is the ultimate example of ordinary people coming together to do extraordinary things.  It’s the perfect opportunity for people of all walks of life to become a part of something bigger than themselves and see what kind of impact they can have.  It’s a reminder that we really can change the world!  From our perspective here at the Jay Fund, it’s a feeling we get all the time.  Every day, we see how the gifts you so generously provide make a dramatic difference in the lives of families tackling childhood cancer.  Every day, we have the opportunity to #BeThere for them…because you choose to #BeThere for us.

#GivingTuesday is about AMAZING choices.

We get bombarded with great deals, special offers and “once-in-a-lifetime holiday shopping extravaganzas” every year.  Sometimes it becomes tough to keep our priorities straight.  #GivingTuesday is the perfect time to celebrate how we can do so much more with our wallets than just shop.  It demonstrates that we can give as good as we get.  #GivingTuesday also brilliantly illustrates that, at our heart, we get the most when we give.  At the Jay Fund, we feel so many good feelings when we are able to pay a family’s mortgage, take care of their grocery bill, keep their lights on, or in some cases, help them cover the cost of life-saving procedures.  Just ask any member of our staff – ours are the most fulfilling jobs in the world!

#GivingTuesday is AMAZINGly easy!

These days, we’re all incredibly busy.  It’s wonderful to be able to do something quickly, safely and securely.  #GivingTuesday has grown to be just that for caring, generous hearts who want to help.  For the Jay Fund, giving your gift online only takes a minute, and it’s safe and secure.  And if you want to give of your time and social-savvy energy, it’s easy to find us, engage with us and share your feelings about us.  Find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest by searching @tcjayfund.
