On Giving Tuesday, Give to Those Who Care

gift-444519_640Giving Tuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back, is December 2.

This Giving Tuesday, would you give to those who care?

Through our CareGifters program, operated by our non-profit organization, The Center for Family Caregivers, we send $500 as often as we can to a family caregiver in need.

To date, we’ve sent $500 to 16 family caregivers to help them resolve a pressing caregiving problem. We helped Kristin buy food and shoes; we helped Janet pay for home care so her husband received the care he needed as she recovered from surgery.

BreeAnna used the $500 to build a ramp so her mom has easy access into the house. We helped Teri take a trip with her terminally-ill husband to see their son. With the $500, L’Tanya hired a closet organizer so her mom could enjoy a clutter-free environment. And, Gwyn used the $500 to hire help to care for her mom while she worked.

Casandra used the money to offset the costs of medications, LookingHeavenward purchased much-needed supplies for her mom and Jackie added a ramp to her house so she could get her terminally-ill mom out of the house for special outings. With $500, Amy was able to find a new place to live, Tamara had the down payment she needed for a reliable car and Richard got caught up on bills that piled up as he took time off work to care for his wife.

Would you help us continue to help those who care?

Awesome, Cathy! Thank you, Denise! I'm not able to give financially. However, I would like to give in other ways. Whatever you need, call on me, Denise.

I just found this <a href='http://www.caregiving.com/members/denise/' rel=\"nofollow\">@denise</a>! Bit.ly now has Hope.ly to shorten to help those in need. It is to distinguish the difference. I hope this could be used for CareGifters.

<a href='http://www.caregiving.com/members/denise/' rel=\"nofollow\">@denise</a>: Can you create a custom bit.ly link for Caregifters for Giving Tuesday? It will be easier to Tweet. Thanks!
