PearlPoint Cancer Support has joined the national movement #GivingTuesday for its third year!

November 13, 2014

Mark your calendars for December 2, 2014 and join the over 10,000 organizations that generated over $19 million in donations on this one day in 2013. Your participation this year can make a difference for cancer survivors everywhere.

What is #GivingTuesday?

Giving Tuesday is a national day of giving that takes place the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.  Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is an opportunity to give back after days filled with holiday shopping.  The initiative was founded in 2012 by the UN Foundation and New York’s 92nd Street Y with the support of a team of influencers and founding partners.  It continues to harness the collective power of a unique blend of partners—charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.

How can you participate?

Participating is easy!  All you have to do is make a gift between 12:01 a.m. EST until 11:59 p.m. EST on December 2, 2014. Any amount counts!  Give $5 or $5,000; just donate what you can to celebrate the new tradition of generosity.  Go to www.pearlpoint.org/donate to join the PearlPoint #GivingTuesday initiative. Don’t forget to use the easy matching gift lookup tool to see if your company will match your gift and double your impact.
