Four months ago, I couldn’t have imagined my daughter would be ripping elastic out of past-their-prime sheets to repurpose for saving lives. Naomi and her friends–of Kids Helping Kids International–have shifted their energy away from ornament-crafting and toward making face masks for frontline workers (plus Costco shoppers like me)! Like my grandparents’ generation who we’ve long admired for their resourcefulness–Naomi and her friends are learning to “use what you have to make what you need.”
It’s something new!
Just like Kids Helping Kids is adapting to the current times, so is #GivingTuesdayNow. The organization has added a global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020. It is a day to unite around acts of generosity in our global fight against COVID-19. That’s right up our alley!
Will you do something new with us?
We’re inviting our loyal donors to do something new with us by starting their own fundraisers and we’re leveraging all the positivity of Giving Tuesday, a generous matching donor offer, and Kids Helping Kids to get it done.
Reply to this email and I’ll give you all the tools and language you need to start your own fundraiser. As a super special bonus, we’ll send one of these handmade face masks to every donor that gives $25 or more. Or we can donate your mask to a frontline worker in your honor!
Every donation goes twice as far
A generous donor has offered to match every donation up to $20,000 so that Venezuelan refugees and our volunteers have food and safety.
Because of your generosity during the ongoing countrywide quarantine in Peru, 100 people have had:
- 252 dozen eggs
- 200 loaves of bread
- 116 gallons of milk
- 1400 diapers
Help us to go further. Together we can ensure that:
- No one goes hungry
- Everyone has a warm bed and safe housing
- We are more connected than disconnected during this time.
You have been incredibly supportive during this time. Please join us on #GivingTuesdayNow by starting a fundraiser today. Email Sam Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are in this together —
