A week from today is #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media. #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season and end-of-year giving, and this year your #GivingTuesday gift to PeacePlayers could be doubled when you use Facebook.
On Tuesday, November 28th starting at 8:00am EST, your donation to PeacePlayers on Facebook could be doubled thanks to a matching gift from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Facebook and The Gates Foundation are working together to match up to $2 million in funds raised for nonprofits in the U.S. The match is up to $50,000 per nonprofit and $1000 per fundraiser. Also, all donation fees are waived for the day, so every dollar raised will help PeacePlayers! Here’s how you can get involved:
- Create a fundraiser by visiting facebook.com/fundraisers clicking “raise money” and select PeacePlayers.
- Post: Write a post on FB and tag PeacePlayers. You’ll see a prompt to add a donate button after you post.
- Click and donate: Visit our PeacePlayers page on Facebook and donate directly to us on Giving Tuesday.
This starts at 8:00am EST on Tuesday and the match is first come, first serve until the funds are gone so you’ll want to get started early.
This #GivingTuesday, please consider making a donation that will enable PeacePlayers to continue our valuable work using the power of sport in bridging divides and developing leaders. Together, we can help create a foundation of trust and respect between communities in conflict that is essential to peace everywhere!
