When: Tuesday, December 3rd
GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. 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.
This Giving Tuesday, we’re celebrating the Butterfly Effect at Marisa’s Mission.
We are constantly overwhelmed by how much we have accomplished since our founding in October 2016. In just THREE years we’ve given out 102 grants totaling almost $500,000 ! We went from giving out 8 grants in year one, to more than 50 grants a year. We have become affiliated with Dana Farber and the Jimmy Fund Oncology Patient Resources programs. Our grantees have hailed from across the state, represent many different ages and backgrounds, and have become a part of our always-growing Marisa’s Mission family.
Our growth has been made possible by the power of our network. Each time one of you – our supporters – donates, shares our story, shares a memory of Marisa, or passes our info to a future grantee, it allows us to help more and more amazing people focus more on their health and less on the financial burdens that too often accompany cancer treatments.
This is the power of the Butterfly Effect: the idea that a small change or action can inspire something much bigger. And we’re asking you to help us demonstrate just how powerful this effect can be on Giving Tuesday, December 3.
What is your Marisa’s Mission story? Did you know Marisa? Are you a grantee? Leading up to and on Giving Tuesday, we invite you to share your story with us. We know it will create an impact that makes this year’s Giving Tuesday our best year yet.
