#GivingTuesday is getting closer and closer! We know that you are undoubtedly lying awake each night thinking about how you can help MAF on this wonderful holiday. So to help you rest easier, we have compiled a list of our top three ways you can help MAF bring medical help to isolated places this Christmas season.
But first, a little about #GivingTuesday. This day was started by a group of non-profit organizations who decided there might be a better way to kick off the Christmas season than just getting great deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. They created #GivingTuesday to encourage people to give something back and support a charity or non-profit and make a lasting difference in the world.
MAF is participating in #GivingTuesday by raising $24,000 to fund medical flights in places that would otherwise have no access to medical care. Help us change a life in a day!
So with further ado, here are the top three ways you can participate with MAF on #GivingTuesday:
Thunderclap is a way to amplify our voices across social media. It is a tool that allows people to post one message—simultaneously—to reach thousands more than any of us could on our own.
We need at least 100 supporters (or even more!) by December 3rd for our Thunderclap to work. We need you to go here and add your support! Just follow this link and click on either Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr and Thunderclap will post our message on your behalf on #GivingTuesday!
2. Share, Share, Share!
In addition to Thunderclap, we need everyone we can get to help us spread the word about MAF and #GivingTuesday.
a. So please share on social media about how you are going to participate with MAF on #GivingTuesday, tag it with the hashtags #changealife and #24Kin24hours so we can keep track of what’s going on.
b. Post an #unselfie of yourself with a message about how MAF is changing lives. (a selfie is a pic you take of yourself… an unselfie is an unselfish version of that. Get it?) Check out these awesome #unselfies people have already posted here:
c. Share MAF’s #GivingTuesday video:
Now for the “G” in #GivingTuesday! Get involved and GIVE! Kick off the Christmas season with MAF on December 3rd and help us raise $24,000 in 24 hours. This amount is the cost of MAF’s medical flights in a single day. Your support could help us #changealife in a day!
