This #GivingTuesday Give Like Mikey
As children across the country dream about holiday gifts and holiday parties, our hearts go out to all the pediatric cancer patients whose holiday will be spent wishing they could feel better. Some are so sick they have to spend their holidays in a hospital room.
And while most children await the gift-giving season with excited anticipation, when your family is burdened with medical bills, gifts become a luxury that are difficult to afford. That’s why our Mikey’s Wish List and Mikey’s Way Day programs are especially important during this time of year.
You can help a pediatric cancer patient this holiday season by purchasing a gift for a child going through cancer treatment on #GivingTuesday, December 3rd.
#GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.
#GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to make a difference. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
Fueled by the power of social media and collaboration, #GivingTuesday is celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, which this year is December 3, 2019.
What You Can Do
One of the best ways to join the movement and help others is to purchase a gift for a child going through cancer treatment. Our goal this year is 100 gifts for 100 kids. To help us reach our goal during #GivingTuesday, next year, check back for more details!
As Mikey said himself, “The best gift that you can get, is to give a gift to another person.”
