Giving Tuesday: December 1, 2015

December 1, 2015


What is #GivingTuesday?

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back!

On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

We’re joining the #GivingTuesday movement to:

  • raise awareness about the difficulties homebound individuals face in obtaining proactive healthcare
  • spread the word about how in-home primary and palliative care benefits individuals, and lowers healthcare costs!
  • connect with members of our community who believe what we believe- that everyone deserves proactive, individualized healthcare- even when they can no longer leave their home!

How can I get involved?

1. Lead through example by making a gift today!

2. Become an ambassador for Housecall Providers!

  • Like our page on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn
  • Leave us a review on Google+ and Yelp
  • Help spread the word about this work by sharing our posts, photos and updates with your personal network

3. Share your story with us!

  • Take an #UNselfie– a picture of yourself holding a sign explaining why you support the work of Housecall Providers. Share your #UNselfie
    on Twitter and Facebook- and don’t forget to tag Housecall Providers!
  • Compose a short essay (200 words) about why you give to Housecall Providers for the #MyGivingStory contest. If your story is selected, Housecall Providers will receive a grant of $5,000!

  • If you or someone you loved has benefited from our services, and you’re interested in telling your story on the HCP website or in our Vital Signs newsletter, e-mail Barb Gorman, Marketing & Communications Manager.

4. Capitalize on all the different ways to support HCP!

  • Does your workplace have an employee matching gift program? It’s easy to find out by using the Double the Donation tool, offered for FREE November 17th-December 15th in honor of #GivingTuesday.
  • Consider including Housecall Providers in your estate plans! You may choose to give a gift through your will, or designate HCP as the beneficiary of an insurance policy or retirement plan. For more information, visit our Bequest Giving page.
