Save the Date: #GivingTuesday is December 1st!
The holiday season is in full swing, and everyone at the XLH Network hopes that you are enjoying your holiday preparations and activities! Each year, the XLH Network asks members to consider participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back to our communities.
This year #GivingTuesday falls on December 1, 2015, and we hope you will help us use this day of giving to bring attention to the XLH Network and the families for whom we advocate. There are three ways you can help us make #GivingTuesday a success this year.
First, you can GIVE, and this year, the board of directors of the XLH Network wants to match your gifts! Various board members have agreed to combine funds in addition to their annual gifts to match up to a total of $2,000 in giving! This means that every dollar you donate on #GivingTuesday will mean an additional dollar is donated for XLH causes that will benefit XLH families! You can help double the hope!
Second, you can participate in the #unselfie movement! Take a picture of yourself holding a sign about giving to the XLH Network and plaster it all over your social media on #GivingTuesday. Use the hashtags #GivingTuesday, #UNselfie, and #XLHNetwork and show your friends and family that you are choosing to give. And for those of you who prefer not to take #unselfies, we have “I Pledged” graphics that you can use instead! You'll find them at our official Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/xlhnetwork
Finally, you can spread the word! #GivingTuesday isn’t just about donations. Recruit at least one member of your family who is not already a member of the XLH Network and ask them to sign up! The more members we can reach, the more we can do for our entire community.
The XLH Network Board of Directors is excited about partnering with our members to celebrate #GivingTuesday. Donate at http://xlhnetwork.org/index.php/donate/, and the board of directors will match your donations up to a total of $2,000! We can’t wait to update you on our progress, so mark your calendars for December 1, 2015!
