GIVING TUESDAY 2021
It comes every year. Just like the new year, annual holidays, birthdays and anniversaries. This day, Giving Tuesday, is one of the most focused and potentially the largest fundraising day for nonprofits around the world. It is a time for a universal ask from nonprofits. Matching fund programs are announced for this one day. There are thermometers closely gauging the rise of donations received. The asks are anywhere from donations, in-kind support, ambassadors and volunteers
Giving Tuesday is just that – one day. At Joedance we work as if everyday is Giving Tuesday. There is not a day that goes by that myself, our board members and our supporters talk about the impact our donations have at Levine Children’s.
Through the Joedance Internship Program data has been collected, published and new protocols put in place for Healios, the backpack program and Supportive Medicine. The most recent intern is working in the Neuro-Oncology department collecting data for future research projects for brain tumors. The Research Technician III has been funded through donations to Levine Children’s from Joedance. Just these two programs will make a difference every day in advancing better treatments with better outcomes for kids with cancer.
Yes, Giving Tuesday is tomorrow and Joedance like many, many other nonprofits will participate. But be assured we will continue to work Every Month. Every Week. Every Day.™ to fulfill Joe’s legacy list.
I personally invite you to continue to support Joedance and Joe’s vision of making a difference and advancing research for pediatric cancer everyday. And I personally thank you. Because of your support we have made very important changes that have improved pediatric cancer treatments.
