We have joined #GivingTuesday, an effort that will harness the collective power of a unique blend of partners—charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday will inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support and help create a better world.
Taking place November 29, 2016 – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – #GivingTuesday will harness the power of social media to create a national moment around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping.
The cost of caring for one hospice patient for one day is around $185. For every $185 we raise within a 24-hour period, we can provide a day of care.
Co-founder Dr. Billy Dunlap: "When we started Hospice of Wake County in 1979, we made a promise never to turn away any patient because of inability to pay for services. We have been able to remain faithful to that promise only because of the generosity of our donors."
Join us November 29 as we participate in #GivingTuesday. Your tax-deductible gift will go a long way toward providing medical, emotional, and spiritual support in our community, such as the way it helped "Michael." Read more about him here.
