Giving Tuesday: December 1, 2015

December 1, 2015


What is #GivingTuesday?

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back!

On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

We’re joining the #GivingTuesday movement to:

  • raise awareness about the difficulties homebound individuals face in obtaining proactive healthcare
  • spread the word about how in-home primary and palliative care benefits individuals, and lowers healthcare costs!
  • connect with members of our community who believe what we believe- that everyone deserves proactive, individualized healthcare- even when they can no longer leave their home!

How can I get involved?

1. Lead through example by making a gift today!

2. Become an ambassador for Housecall Providers!

  • Like our page on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn
  • Leave us a review on Google+ and Yelp
  • Help spread the word about this work by sharing our posts, photos and updates with your personal network

3. Share your story with us!

  • Take an #UNselfie– a picture of yourself holding a sign explaining why you support the work of Housecall Providers. Share your #UNselfie
    on Twitter and Facebook- and don’t forget to tag Housecall Providers!
  • Compose a short essay (200 words) about why you give to Housecall Providers for the #MyGivingStory contest. If your story is selected, Housecall Providers will receive a grant of $5,000!

  • If you or someone you loved has benefited from our services, and you’re interested in telling your story on the HCP website or in our Vital Signs newsletter, e-mail Barb Gorman, Marketing & Communications Manager.

4. Capitalize on all the different ways to support HCP!

  • Does your workplace have an employee matching gift program? It’s easy to find out by using the Double the Donation tool, offered for FREE November 17th-December 15th in honor of #GivingTuesday.
  • Consider including Housecall Providers in your estate plans! You may choose to give a gift through your will, or designate HCP as the beneficiary of an insurance policy or retirement plan. For more information, visit our Bequest Giving page.

Our newsletter is sent out three times a year to our patients and Housecall Providers supporters to let them know what we’ve been up to.
