#GivingTuesday is a day set aside for giving back. On #GivingTuesday, December 3, remember LE&RN and join the fight against lymphedema and lymphatic diseases.
Our fundraising goal this year is $100,000 -- just $5 from each person who follows LE&RN on Facebook. If you can give more, give more -- but please participate at whatever level you can. The goal is to have everyone #GiveBack to LE&RN on December 3 at some level. $100,000 also happens to be the maximum amount that Facebook will match per non-profit. We intend to go for as many matching dollars as possible.
Facebook’s match for Giving Tuesday 2019 begins at 8:00 AM Eastern Time (5:00 AM Pacific Time) on Tuesday, December 3, 2019. Last year, Facebook users raised more than $125 million for charity — the largest amount of money ever raised on the social media platform in a single day. This enthusiasm also meant, however, that Facebook reached its match limit almost immediately. So, LE&RN Supporters, we have to be ready!
How to participate in LE&RN's #GivingTuesday campaign:
- Join LE&RN's #GivingTuesday Facebook event for continuous updates on this effort and share the event with friends and family.
- Create your own #GivingTuesday fundraiser on Facebook benefitting LE&RN (it's easy; just follow these steps) or plan to participate in LE&RN's #GivingTuesday fundraiser.
- On Tuesday, December 3, participate by giving as little as $5 on Facebook, which is quick, easy, and safe. Facebook will match up to $100,000 for each non-profit and up to $20,000 per donor. However, Facebook is capping its total match at $7 million. This means LE&RN must get in early. Please participate immediately after the 8am EST (7am CST, 6am MST, 5am PST) start time.
