As the holidays draw near, we are reminded once again that tis’ the season to give, and KVC Kentucky is excited to announce its participation in BlueGrass Community Foundation’s GoodGiving Guide Challenge!
The GoodGiving Guide Challenge is an online giving campaign designed to engage the entire community and to make charitable giving easy and fun. Now in its fifth year, the Challenge is a partnership between Blue Grass Community Foundation and Smiley Pete Publishing. This year’s goal is to raise even more and to engage new donors.
KVC Kentucky has the privilege of responding to adults and families during times of crisis. While our skilled clinicians and case managers provide much needed emotional support and behavioral health services, the children and families we serve often face a significant lack of resources to meet their most basic needs such as food, clothing, safety and shelter. Often, we must rely on the generosity of individuals, business leaders and organizations in the community to help meet these basic needs. The GoodGiving Guide Challenge allows for easy, fun, community involvement that reminds us that everyone can help make a difference.
We need YOUR help to meet the emergency needs of the children, adults and families we serve. There are several ways you can participate:
DONATE – click here to make a donation NOW – December 31st. Choose the amount you wish to donate, and share your participation on social media. Your donation will go toward providing food, heat, electricity and other basic needs such as beds, blankets or clothing for families in need. By joining us to meet these needs, children and families will have the opportunity to focus on healing and recovery. We also have several match donors who will DOUBLE donations to $500.
FUNDRAISE – create your own fundraiser for KVC Kentucky and mobilize your friends, co-workers and family to donate.
CONNECT – spread the word about the good you are doing. Share posts about the GoodGiving Guide Challenge from the KVC Kentucky Facebook page or send emails with instructions to donate or join your fundraiser. Be sure to use the hashtag #goodgivingguide.
The Holiday season is a perfect time to reflect on our blessings and seek out ways to make life better for those around us. Join KVC Kentucky in our mission to enrich and enhance the lives of children and families by participating in The Good Giving Guide Challenge!
“When we are able to help the family provide the basic needs for their children, we are able to stabilize the home more effectively. If we can help families meet these basic needs, and obtain items they need such as clothing, food and safe shelter, then we can focus on the larger challenges.”—Monica Shotzbarger B.S.
