Thank You for a Successful Giving Tuesday

Because of support from our community, the Sacramento Children’s Home raised over $10,000 on Giving Tuesday 2018! To everyone who supported us through a donation, a Facebook fundraiser and/or a simple social media share, THANK YOU.

#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement held on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. There’s Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and now Giving Tuesday. That’s two days for getting deals and one day for giving back.

You might ask, “what’s the difference between Giving Tuesday and the Big Day of Giving?”

The Big Day of Giving is a local 24-hour fundraising campaign specific to Sacramento. Giving Tuesday is a global effort to engage more people in philanthropy.

This year, we raised crucial funds for the crisis nursery. We know the need for emergency care during a crisis remains, and we want to be there for as many families as we can, to prevent neglect, to prevent child abuse, and to keep families together. We strive to keep families whole, strong and thriving. It takes approximately $200 to provide care for one child for a full 24 hours, so $10,000 will allow us to provide care for an additional 50 children in need.

2 Ways Supporters Got Involved

1. Give the Gift of Support

There are numerous reasons to give, but here are three great reasons to make a donation today:

a. Your financial support directly helps children and families in need. When families are in a crisis situation with no family or friends to turn to for help, they turn to the Crisis Nursery. Because of your support, we are able to provide those families with emergency childcare and a case manager so they can more effectively handle their crisis. Check out ABC10’s recent segment on our Crisis Nursery:

But if that’s not enough…

b. It’s easy! Supporting your fellow community members in need through SCH takes less than two minutes.

c. It’s tax-deductible.
