#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving, celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (November 28th), Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday (December 3rd) kicks-off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
“Giving Tuesday provides a platform to reach more individuals. It not only offers an opportunity to raise vital funds; it helps bring awareness of our organization to people who may need our services,” says CRC for ED’s Executive Director Simone Seitz.
CRC for ED's goal for the 2019 Giving Tuesday campaign is $5,000. This is the cost of funding the Helpline for one year. The Helpline serves individuals, families, and professionals from the first point of contact with disordered eating and eating disorder concerns to reinforcing recovery and everything in-between. The following comments from callers emphasize the importance of this service:
“Thank you so much for the information. I have already forwarded some to someone in this area who was screaming for help. I'm glad that there are more resources now to help with such a growing and often misunderstood problem. Thank you for being a beacon in a very dark place!”
"I needed some help and I felt overwhelmed. Thank you! I’m so happy to have found you!"
A local company has agreed to match 50% of donations, up to $1,000. This match allows donations to go further, increasing CRC for ED’s ability to help those in need.
