What is #GivingTuesday?
On November 29, 2016 communities, charities, businesses, the world and you will come together to celebrate giving. You don’t have to be a big business or a world leader to help change the world. On #GivingTuesday you can get involved in changing your community and the world by giving to the causes that matter to you. You are a promoter, a changer, a champion of change.
Last year over 700,000 people from 70 countries gave $116,000,000 to more than 45,000 organizations worldwide. That is amazing! It is a great testimony to how the power of giving is magnified when we all give together. Giving together gives a voice in our community and harnesses the power of social media letting us work together towards a common goal.
Battle Ground Healthcare is a part of #GivingTuesday because we care about our community’s health. We have free dental clinics and serve those with chronic illnesses in our community. Health is a valuable commodity. Those who have health take it for granted. But imagine if you were sick and couldn’t get care. Imagine you had a tooth ache but dental care was just something you could not afford. Being sick affects everything – work, family, community. Poor nutrition, poor health and poor dental care are obstacles that many in our county struggle with daily. Battle Ground HealthCare strives to meet the health and dental needs of the uninsured and underinsured in our community so that our community can thrive! Our clinic reduces emergency room visits, lost days of work, lower job productivity and improves our community’s quality of life.
So what can you do to help? Think big! #GivingTuesday is for everyone – big donors and little ones. The best ideas for how to raise money and give don’t come from us – they come from YOU! Garage sales, car washes, walk-a-thons, ice bucket challenges are all outside the box thinking and they come from outside sources like YOU. Do you have an idea to raise money to give? Put it into action, film it, show us what you come up with by tagging it #GivingHealthBGHC. Let your light for giving shine!
Just have some money to give? We will take that too! We aren’t biased. Giving to local nonprofits weave threads of unity into the community. You can make a big impact towards the health of your community. Give on #GivingTuesday, November 29, 2016. Challenge your neighbors and friends to participate in giving community health by tagging them in your social media and don’t forget to tag us at #GivingHealthBGHC.
