This Tuesday, November 28, 2017, the NAFC is once again participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. Or as we like to call it - #GivingHealthDay!
Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities.
This year as #GivingTuesday falls at the end of American Diabetes Month, we are thrilled to share that once again our partner Henry Schein Medical - with the help of PTS Diagnostics and Trividia Health - has committed to donate $4,500 worth of supplies including diabetic strips and meters for our patients this #GivingTuesday. You can match their generosity by making a donation of your own to the NAFC!
You can also TRIPLE your impact by donating to the NAFC through Facebook! The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is matching up to $2 million total in donations made to nonprofits through Facebook starting on Nov 28 at 8 AM ET.
Donating through Facebook is easy – simply visit https://www.facebook.com/NAFCClinics and click on the DONATE NOW button. All fees will also be waived for #GivingTuesday!
You can also encourage others to donate to the NAFC by creating a Facebook fundraiser! Visit https://www.facebook.com/fundraisers and select the National Association of Free & Charitable Clinics as your nonprofit. These donations will also be included in the match!
Not on Facebook? Not to worry – you can still make a donation through our website by visiting http://www.nafcclinics.org/content/donate.
Here are a few additional ways that you can help this #GivingTuesday:
