#GivingTuesday ~ A Global Day to Give & Spread Goodness!

How do you feel when surprising a friend with a beautiful bouquet of flowers? Or when posting a sweet note for your partner on the mirror? Or unexpectedly surprising your child with their favorite treat? Or calling a neighbor to offer getting groceries or a friendly conversation during the pandemic? All these actions have some things in common. They are acts of kindness, generosity and love that spread a ripple of good feelings and good things! Both you and the receiver feel this, and that goodness keeps on going!

GivingTuesday is coming up on Dec 1, 2020. It’s a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to use kindness and generosity to transform their communities and the world. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. And, over the past eight years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. Yay!

With generosity, kindness and love at the heart of GivingTuesday, we at California Health Advocates are again inspired to participate in this year’s #GivingTuesday on December 1, 2020. We invite you to join us in this global movement of generosity and goodness!

#GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.), Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It’s also way to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate and to give back in impactful ways to the organizations and causes they support.

Last year, millions of people in over 160 countries participated in #GivingTuesday, and now in its 9th year, nearly every country on the planet is participating. We invite you to join the movement and give to California Health Advocates this December 1Your gift supports our work ensuring our older adults and younger people on Medicare with a disability are informed and empowered in understanding, navigating and accessing their health care benefits and rights, and that our Medicare program stays strong for generations to come!

Make your tax-deductible donation today! And, we have a matching grant! So, with our matching grant, your gift will have twice the impact, and is one that will keep on giving to the over 6.2 million Medicare beneficiaries and their families in our state.

Thank you for your generosity and spreading a ripple of growing and glowing goodness! You make a difference and we appreciate you!
