The leading national organization working to prevent and end family homelessness hosts its annual digital campaign to raise awareness and funds for housing-insecure families.
SUMMIT, NJ— On Thursday, April 28th, Family Promise is celebrating its third annual Giving Day, a 24-hour online campaign to raise awareness and support for families battling homelessness. Family Promise’s network of over 200 Affiliates across the country will come together to participate in this annual digital awareness event.
This year, Family Promise is asking participants to “Give an Hour” on Giving Day – whether that is an hour of time volunteering, an hour’s worth of salary as a donation, or an hour spent raising awareness of the three million children who experience homelessness every year in America.
“At Family Promise, we believe that everyone can make a difference and that small actions add up to big change for families at risk of homelessness,” says Betsy Bernard, co-chairwoman of Giving Day and National Family Promise board member. “Whether someone volunteers for an hour, shares a story on social media to spread awareness, or makes a gift to support our work – every action matters.”
The digital campaign will be accompanied by Family Promise’s Night of Giving Virtual Gala – an evening full of special guests, an interactive cocktail mixology class, and an online auction, plus an awards presentation in support of families battling homelessness. Tickets can be purchased here.
Sponsors of Giving Day and Night of Giving include Clayton, Belk, Woodforest National Bank, Grow with Google, Synchrony, Kiddie Academy, Progressive, Ikea, Eminjay Design, The Community Spirit Vodka, and eSalon.
