Spread Smiles & Good Feelings ~ Join Us on #GivingTuesday to Give Back

Giving does good. Not only do people receiving a gift feel good, but the giver is filled with happiness, wellbeing and a fulfilling sense of doing something good! This act of giving has a ripple effect and can easily spread smiles and good feelings far and wide, causing a cascade of good things! And, in the stresses of life, including political strife, rising health insurance costs and uncertainty, spreading good is an important and essential way to give back to our families and communities!

This is why we at California Health Advocates are again participating in this year’s #Giving Tuesday event, a global movement of giving back, on Tuesday November 27, 2018. We invite you to join us in this local and global act of giving!

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

Last year, millions of people in over 98 countries participated in #GivingTuesday. We invite you to join the movement and give to California Health Advocates this November 27Your gift supports our work ensuring our older adults in California 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!

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 5.6 million Medicare beneficiaries and their families in our state.

Thank you for making a difference and spreading a ripple of growing goodness! Your gift matters!
