Peace of Healing: Announcing SGBD's 2018 #GivingTuesday Campaign!
The season of #giving is upon us, and this year,
we need the help of all our Savvy Givers to reach our goals!
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many of us think of how we can help others by giving back to nonprofit organizations.
This year, Savvy Giving by Design wants YOU to be a
piece of the peace we can provide.
About Savvy Giving by Design:
HOW WE STARTED:
Savvy Giving by Design started in 2014, when founder Susan Wintersteen offered to do a room makeover for then 14 year old Kasey Harvey, a local teen who was battling Rhabdomyosarcoma. Besides just a pretty place to sleep, we realized what a lasting impact a clean, well designed, and well thought out room had on Kasey’s healing, which lead Susan to want to start Savvy Giving.
WHAT WE’VE ACCOMPLISHED:
To date, SGBD (and it’s 6 affiliate chapters across the US) has brought new rooms to 45 children (in San Diego alone!) facing medical crises thanks to the our sponsorships, partnerships with brands, and generous donations from our Savvy Giving community.
About our #GivingTuesday Campaign:
When we talk to our Savvy Giving kids and their parents, (and as you can see in our latest SGBD Video), overwhelmingly what their new rooms gave them was a sense of peace.
We know that there is so much that goes on in the lives of the families that we help, and that it takes the time, care, effort and love of doctors, nurses, surgeons, specialists and so many more to help them heal from the crises that they face.
Our organization believes that what we provide for the families we help is a piece of their healing. We believe that the rooms we create are a piece of the bigger picture. Our campaign this year is around the idea of being a piece of their peace. Savvy Giving by Design strives to be a piece of their healing by bringing peace to their lives.
