This year, on Tuesday, November 29th, 2016, Twist Out Cancer will participate in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving, which will take place on November 29, 2016.
Last year, more than 27,000 organizations in 68 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday. Since its founding in 2014, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities. We invite you to become a #GivingTuesday Ambassador and help get out and give this November 29th.
We have an incredible opportunity to further our reach and impact this year. This year, Twist Out Cancer was provided with a generous $15,000 matching grant from the Coleman Foundation and the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Foundation which will be activated on Giving Tuesday.
On November 29th, Twist Out Cancer hopes to raise $30,000. Your donation will be matched dollar for dollar with the help of the Foundations’ matching grants. These funds will help support three critical program areas that Twist Out Cancer provides: health and wellness events, Brushes with Cancer, and Educational Workshops (Twist Shops).
In the weeks leading up to the big day we will be launching both initiatives online and in person. Stay tuned for a list of upcoming events and learn about ways you can support our community.
