Though it may not seem like it, senior citizens quite enjoy when people click buttons. Example: the donate button to the right.  See more

BENEFITING: New York Cares

THE STORY:

You may be buoyant and young, but we here at New York Cares know that the older generation needs some good old-fashioned lovin’ too. More than 50% of senior citizens living in residence homes have no visitors to come brighten their day – EVER. Can you hear the sound of a heart breaking?

Now imagine a senior citizen home plus a handful of volunteers armed with hot glue guns and decks of cards. Building a macaroni assault tank with Ole Bessie? Sounds epic. Aw, does that 72-year-old man have a royal flush? Sucks for you. But wait, karaoke with Gramps? And mocktail parties? Looks like your day just got awesome.

Senior citizens need company, and they tend to know a thing or two about life. Our volunteers usually walk away from nursing homes feeling totally fulfilled and happy. A $20 donation to New York Cares will help ensure programs like this exist for a long time and people never have to suffer the injustice of being forgotten.

So seriously, don’t buy that venti iced half caf double caramel latte macchiato tomorrow morning - send the cash our way instead. That way, you can skip the gym and keep some old folks happy at the same time.

All donations will support New York Cares' general programming, which provides critical services to 400,000 at-risk New Yorkers each year. For information on making donations to support specific programs, please contact Jennifer.Goldschein@newyorkcares.org.
