What is #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday is a dedicated day of giving back to organizations around the world following Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, Dream Foundation will join charities, families, businesses, and individuals across the world to celebrate this global movement that celebrates giving and kicks off the holiday giving season.
“My Giving Reason” Campaign
Last year, more than 10,000 organizations in 46 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday. This year, we invite you to join the movement and support Dream Foundation’s #GivingTuesday campaign, by sharing your reason for giving. Here are some options on how you can give:
1. Make a donation to Dream Foundation to fulfill final dreams across the nation at www.dreamfoundation.org/donate:
a. A gift of $25 can bring compassion in the form of flowers to seriously ill patients or toy packages for our dream recipients to gift to their children
b. A gift of $50 can help fund a final “date, provide transportation and admission to a movie or concert
c. A gift of $100 can help allow attendance to a loved one’s graduation, sponsor a CD player for a music lover
d. A gift of $200 can sponsor a day out for a dreamer or provide a holiday dinner and gift for the children
e. A gift of $250 can furnish a new mattress, clean bed linen, or subsidize a laptop or TV for a dreamer
f. Adopt a dream for $1,000. You will receive details of the dream story and a photo of the dream recipient
