#GivingTuesday 2018

November 27th, 2018

“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”

—Winston S. Churchill

As Winston Churchill pointed out, giving is the best way to enrich the lives of others as well as our own. While generosity should never be bound by any particular day or time of year, we are excited for #GivingTuesday, a day that was established to encourage charitable deeds.

This day has grown into a global movement, uniting people and organizations across the globe by caring for, empowering, and supporting one another. Celebrated the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday encourages us to kick off the holidays with the spirit of charity, providing support to those in need.

Thanks to our friends at CMG Foundation, every donation made today will have double the impact, matching each and every donation up to $100,000!

CMG Foundation has a mission to deliver hope, striving to make an impact on society through supporting non-profit organizations dedicated to improving the lives of those in need. As long-time donors of the Gary Sinise Foundation, we are grateful for their ongoing commitment to serving America’s heroes.

Every donation will be matched today, so your help is needed now to reach our goal.

Today only, not only will your gift be matched 100%, donors can also enter to win amazing prizes on the Gary Sinise Foundation Facebook page.
