Could You #BeAHero? Support Hand to Hold for #GivingTuesday

giving tuesday, #givingtuesday, hand to hold

The holidays are filled with opportunities to donate your time, resources, and money. This holiday season we encourage you to honor the NICU superhero in your life and show your support of NICU families by taking part in Giving Tuesday as a part of our 24-hour #BeAHero campaign!

Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, which this year falls on Tuesday, November 28. This special day kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

Hand to Hold is asking for your support this holiday season so we can continue to provide critical peer-to-peer support for thousands of NICU and bereaved families nationwide.

To donate, simply go to crowdrise.com/BeAHero.

But guess what? There’s something in it for you too!

For every $100 you donate, you will be entered into a drawing to win two JetBlue airline tickets!

Gifts received will fund Hand to Hold’s newest podcast, NICU Heroes, an educational series for NICU professionals. Episodes will provide professionals with ideas and resources to better understand, support and nurture the entire NICU family.

P.S.- Your gift will go twice as far during our two SUPER POWER HOURS from 10-11 a.m. and 6-7 p.m. CST, sponsored by NEO Tech and URS Medical. During these designated hours, gifts will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $1,000!

So will you join us and #BeAHero this Giving Tuesday? We hope so! Visit crowdrise.com/BeAHero on Tuesday, November 28!
