Hey Team North America!

BENEFITING: BUTTERFLY CHILDRENS HOSPICES U S INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 29, 2016
#GivingTuesday is the day to do good stuff for charity. It follows the gluttony of Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Want to give back? You've come to the right place.
On November 29th we are pitching our supporters against each other in a friendly battle to see just how much they can raise for our Butterfly children.
Here’s the catch; we have just two teams and 24 hours to do it.
Since you’re on this page, we’re guessing that you're with team North America.
(No? Team Europe? Insert eye roll. Then you best visit their JustGiving page instead. https://www.justgiving.com/campaigns/charity/butterfly-hospices/givingtuesdayteameurope)
Our teams have been busy picking which crib they want to support. Check out the Facebook discussion! https://www.facebook.com/butterflych.org/
Team North America needs to raise $6,000 in 24 hours to cover the cost of keeping our crib open in our Changsha home. This covers all medical, nursing, play-therapy, food, clothing and diaper costs for the child in our crib.
Why are we fundraising in this way?
Many communities and medical professionals in China are looking to Butterfly to help them create sustainable children’s palliative care models in various locations across China. This has always been our strategic aim. We couldn't be more delighted that after 10 years, our dream is being realized.
However, laws governing NGO's in China are also changing and it is becoming more and more challenging to raise the funds required to keep our home open. Our monthly sponsorships for 2015-16 have been particularly low and we are desperately short of funds.
We need your help. Without you, our Changsha Home has an incredibly uncertain future. Please, donate what you can this #GivingTuesday. Tell all your friends, family and co-workers.
We need everyone in Team Europe and Team North America to shout loud and proud that we support children’s palliative care for some of the world's most vulnerable children.
