Together We Give / Together We Stand / Together We Heal
#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.
Please join United Cerebral Palsy of the North Bay as we come together to create a wave of generosity, citizen engagement, action from business and philanthropy, and support for communities around the world.
Staying connected is a key ingredient to navigating these unusual times. While many of our participants, staff and their families and friends have embraced technology and are able to “see” each other through platforms such as “Zoom,” there are some who go without. Our goal is to get the technology into everyone’s hands to be able to stay connected. To date, UCP of the North Bay has conducted hundreds of online classes, meetings, and “check-ins” with a large percentage of our network across four counties in the North Bay, but there are still some who cannot connect.
UCP of the North Bay’s #GivingTuesdayNow campaign aims to purchase a minimum of 300 Amazon Fire Tablets to distribute within our network to help our community stay connected! These tablets can be purchased for just $60 each.
Our organization has decided to extend the #GivingTuesdayNow campaign from May 5 to May 31st. For each $60 gift we will use to purchase an Amazon Fire Tablet for our network, you will receive one “Donation With a Chance” entry into our raffle for a “Post-Pandemic Getaway.” The drawing will take place June 5th, live and online.
The #PostPandemicGetaway is a trip valued at approximately $2,000 and includes airfare, lodging and spending money!
Please help by making your $60 donation(s) today and spreading the word to friends and family to do the same!
Please take seriously the continuing recommendations for social distancing. We are saving lives! Work hard, be kind, stay home and stay connected.
