What is Giving Tuesday?
Giving Tuesday is a one day annual movement that kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving and is held on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. It’s a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy. Giving Tuesday this year is on Tuesday, November 29th, 2016 (After “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday”, comes Giving Tuesday).
Last year for Giving Tuesday our supporters raised funds to provide more iPads to children with apraxia from low to moderate income families to use as speech practice and communication tools. Throughout the day – on social media and emails to our vast network of supporters – we shared about CASANA’s efforts to help children with apraxia find their voices.
This year, we are once again setting an ambitious goal and more than anything, we need your help!
High Fives for Apraxia
On Giving Tuesday we’ll be asking for “High-Five for Apraxia” donations. With each donation made that day, the donor will have the opportunity to send a “High-five” e-card to thank someone who has helped a child with apraxia. Individuals can thank a therapist, a teacher, a parent or caregiver or anyone that contributes to successful speech and communication outcomes for a child with apraxia.
Donations made on Giving Tuesday will help support CASANA’s efforts in the area of speech therapy for children with apraxia. We know that the only researched and evidence-based treatment for children with apraxia of speech is speech therapy! Your donation will help children find their voices!
The Unique Way That You Can Help
People donate to CASANA because they believe in and support the good work we do. On Giving Tuesday, many organizations ask for support. We are looking for sponsors this year to create a pool of matching funds. We want people to give and know, thanks to our match sponsors, that their donation can have an even greater impact. Every contribution to CASANA on Giving Tuesday can be doubled, with YOUR help!
