Give a Tuesday on #GivingTuesday

November 10, 2015

BridgeCommunities_GivingTuesday_logoNovember’s busy–we know it.

On Thanksgiving, we celebrate family and togetherness. On Black Friday, we shop the doorbuster sales. On Small Business Saturday, we shop local. On Cyber Monday, we hunt for online deals.

But on December 1, otherwise known as #GivingTuesday, we ask you to consider those most in need, and Give a Tuesday: a $35 donation to provide a night of housing for a homeless family.

When you make a gift of just $35, you will bring a homeless family in from the cold, into a warm, safe apartment in DuPage County. Not only that, they’ll be connected to all the tools they need–mentoring, financial counseling, job coaching, tutoring, counseling and more–so that they will never be homeless again. 

This year on #GivingTuesday, we need to raise $4,550–that’s one night of housing for each of the 130 families served by Bridge Communities next year. Your generous gift is critical to ensuring that we reach this goal.

Please celebrate the spirit of giving with us, and help us kick off the holiday season right: by saving a homeless family.

We’ll be in touch more this month to keep you updated on #GivingTuesday, and let you know how you can get involved and bring even more families in from the cold.

Thank you for being a friend to homeless families in your community. You’re the bridge connecting them from homelessness to hope.
