#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of Giving and Unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. As we can all attest, a global threat like COVID-19 affects more than just the infected – it touches every person, business and of course non-profits on the planet. Giving Tuesday is about fundraising AND coming together as a global community.
Starting Hearts is asking for financial giving from our supporters, partners, friends and local community. COVID-19 fears are keeping a lot of people from hospitals and calling 911 for fear of possible infection of the coronavirus. Additionally, the COVID-19 virus can have a direct impact on an individual’s normal heart function, making them more susceptible to sudden cardiac arrest. This means now more than ever that the public needs to be prepared with life-saving skills.
As most of you are aware we are working diligently to help and provide where needed most – with an online, interactive education training program. As most of you know, we are working with an amazing company, called Connect for Education (C4E) to do this. There is a significant cost involved and we must raise funds to cover it. Our focus of this #GivingTuesdayNow Campaign is to raise these funds for this much needed program.
As we are a small team, we need everyone’s participation in helping this event become a success! Please do the following to help spread the word about Giving Tuesday Now to your contacts and community:
