What is #GivingTuesday?
(From GivingTuesday.org) “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.
"a global day dedicated to giving back"
It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.”
How is HearCare Connection joining in?
HearCare Connection wants to see people in our communities connected back to their family and friends by restoring their hearing potential, and this day is a celebration of that mission. Your financial giving can help make possible…
- Grandparents hearing their grandbabies for the first time.
- Wives being able to communicate with their husbands again.
- Parents hear their children’s concerts.
- Kids having the opportunity to fully participate in class.
- People avoiding potential depression and dementia from anxiety caused by hearing loss.
- Birds’ songs being heard by everyone!
And the list goes on. We love having fun and taking joy in our job, but we also know how imperative our work is. With Giving Tuesday, we can make a confident step forward in providing hearing services to all sorts of people who struggle to afford such care.
Our goal is to raise $2,500 on Tuesday.
Financially, our goal is to raise $2,500 on #GivingTuesday and another $2,500 by the end of the year. We're calling it #HearGivingTuesday. But there are lots of other ways to join in as well!

We all know that a group of people unified by a common goal can accomplish more than a single person. Get a group you’re involved with—your workplace, church group, band, coffee shop friends, etc.—to all commit to giving a certain amount.
If you’re really interested in taking your commitment to the next level, email firstname.lastname@example.org to join our Giving Tuesday Street Team.
We simply cannot provide hearing healthcare to those who cannot afford it without your help, both in your financial giving and giving your voice. Thank you for joining us, and thank you for helping us connecting people to people and people to community.
