It’s hard to believe it’s already the end of October, which means the holiday season is just around the corner. Thanksgiving will be here before you know it, followed by two of the busiest shopping days of the year, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Then, immediately after we spend those days searching for deals, we have an opportunity to give back…on #GivingTuesday!
#GivingTuesday takes place on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, and it’s the kickoff to the giving season. #GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that celebrates generosity and encourages individuals, organizations, and communities to give back!
This year, we invite you to use this day to change how the world cares for orphans and help provide family-style care for children around the world!
In years past, we’ve been so amazed by the generosity of our supporters on #GivingTuesday, and we’re so excited to participate again in 2018! This year, donations raised will be used to complete our goal of fully funding our project in San Luis Río Colorado, Mexico.
One of our main focuses this year has been bringing bring family-style care to SLRC. We’ve made great strides in building relationships with government officials and organizations in that city, and we are working to obtain government approval to provide family-style care. And thanks to your generosity, we’ve been able to show love and bring hope to the orphans currently in government care.
At the same time, we’ve continued raising funds to cover the operating expenses of the family-style care we are working to provide in SLRC. We are SO CLOSE to being fully funded, and you can help us get there in 2018! Your donation to The Hope Effect on #GivingTuesday will help support this important initiative.
We are also thrilled to announce that one of our generous supporters has offered to match every donation made on #GivingTuesday…up to $20,000! That means you can double the impact of your gift…and if we reach the entire match amount, our project in San Luis Rio Colorado will be fully funded!
Thank you for your continued support and generosity – we can’t do any of this without you! Together, we are changing how the world cares for orphans!
