GivingTuesday! Join the Global Movement of Generosity & Giving Back!

This year, on Tuesday, December 1, 2015, we at California Health Advocates (CHA) are participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. Coming together with a unique blend of partners—nonprofits, businesses and corporations as well as families and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season, we invite you to join us and consider giving to CHA! Any gift is doubled thanks to the matching grant of an anonymous donor of up to $1,000.

Last year, more than 27,000 organizations in 68 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday.  Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities.

Falling the the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this day of generosity celebrates and provides incentives for people to give. It inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they celebrate and help create a better world. Through the #GivingTuesday movement, we can harness the power of social media to create a global moment dedicated to giving around the world.

Please join us in this global movement of generosity and giving back and consider making a tax deductible donation to California Health Advocates. And as you prepare for the holidays, you can also support California Health Advocates through making purchases through AmazonSmile. It’s the same Amazon, yet by purchasing through AmazonSmile, Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your purchase to CHA.
