This GivingTuesday, the North Country HealthCare Foundation will inspire generosity by sharing North Country HealthCare’s community impact on its social media channels.
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. GivingTuesday will kick off the generosity season this year by inspiring people to give back on December 1, 2020, and throughout the year.
North Country HealthCare’s commitment to care
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, North Country HealthCare’s Community Health Programs have been committed to sustaining its cancer screening programs, maternal child health services and domestic violence evaluations. We invite you to help us make sure that those who need affordable healthcare continue to have access to it. By making a gift of $50, $100, $200 or more, you will support the services, programs, and personnel needed to ensure our patients have seamless access to high quality care.
“North Country’s outreach program staff have remained steadfast in their commitment to providing care and services for the most vulnerable patient populations in the midst of the national crisis,” said Amanda Guay, Director of Community Health. “Teams have done everything from adapting to virtual home visits for Health Start families and collecting donations and creating hand washing stations and delivering them to homes of clients on the Navajo Nation. This demonstrates that North Country staff will raise heaven and earth to support families and patients in achieving better health outcomes.”
How it all began
GivingTuesday was launched in 2012 as a simple idea: to create a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
People demonstrate generosity in many ways on GivingTuesday. Whether it’s helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving to causes we care about, every act of generosity counts. GivingTuesday has raised billions of dollars for critical causes around the world and gets 21 billion impressions on social media from people and organizations speaking up for the causes that matter to them and encouraging others to get involved in their communities.
“GivingTuesday inspires people all around the world to embrace their power to drive progress around the causes they care about, not just on one day but throughout the year.” said Asha Curran, GivingTuesday’s CEO, and co-founder. “With country and community leaders, millions of organizations, and countless givers of all kinds, GivingTuesday is creating a shared space where we can see the radical implications of a more generous world.”
