Every child needs a hero. And for the millions of children around the world growing up without a family, that hero could be you.
As we rapidly approach the holiday season, there’s often excitement in the air. This time of year, there are so many opportunities for joy, laughter, and togetherness. There are also incredible opportunities for generosity.
The first Tuesday after Thanksgiving is #GivingTuesday – the kickoff to the giving season. #GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that celebrates generosity by encouraging individuals and communities to give back.
We are always so amazed and inspired by your generosity on #GivingTuesday. Last year, you came through in a big way…and we had our biggest single-day fundraising total EVER! Amazing!
This #GivingTuesday – December 3rd – we invite you to be a #HeroForHope by changing the way the world cares for orphans. Donations this year will be used to provide and expand family-style care in Chihuahua, Mexico.
The Need In Chihuahua
There are more than 1,500 children living in institutional care in the city of Chihuahua. These children are growing up without the love, support, and stability of a family. We know that being raised in institutional care has damaging physical, developmental, and psychological effects. And we know children belong in families.
Until a few years ago, institutional care was the only legal option for these kids in Chihuahua. But thankfully, the government has embraced the benefits of family-style care. With your support, and in cooperation with our partners in Chihuahua, we are tripling the capacity to provide family-style care in this city.
We’ve made great strides, but there is still work to be done. There are still kids in need of a family.
You Can Be A Hero
Here’s where you come in! You can be a #HeroForHope and help family-style care expand farther, faster. Your generosity and partnership will get more kids into families.
Your support has already made such an impact this year! You’ve changed the lives of children like Lupita and Daniel. You are their hero – you have helped them experience the love and support of a family that every child so desperately needs.
We’re so excited to see the family-style care movement growing in Chihuahua. And with your help, we can keep it up! Our expenses next year for Chihuahua will be $50,000…so that’s our goal this #GivingTuesday! We would LOVE to go into 2020 with this project fully funded for the entire year!
In addition, we’re thrilled to announce that one of our generous supporters has agreed to match all donations raised on that day…up to $25,000! That means you can double the impact of your gift on #GivingTuesday!
Will you help us get more children like Lupita and Daniel into families? This #GivingTuesday, will you be a #HeroForHope?
We’d be honored if you would partner with us on December 3rd. And if you’d like to jump in early, you don’t have to wait – our #GivingTuesday site is live now! And coming soon…this year, we’ll have a brand new way to make giving even easier! Be on the lookout for an option to text your gift in the upcoming weeks.
Thank you for your continued support and generosity – we can’t do any of this without you! Together, we are changing the way the world cares for orphans!
