Announcing the 2020 Giving Tuesday Campaign, Give with Heart

Giving Tuesday is on December 1st, and today Gwyneth’s Gift is kicking off our campaign, Give with Heart, for this global day of unity and giving to raise awareness about our mission and to raise funds for our programs. 

Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. This is the 3rd year GGF is participating in the event, and we are excited about sharing our message with supporters in our area, old and new.

There are multiple ways to join our Culture of Action: Give with Heart

  • From now through December 1st, post a selfie with a heart you found in nature, at home, in the office, or anywhere, and tag our FacebookInstagram, and LinkedIn accounts using the hashtag #GiveHeart.
  • Share a photo of yourself with the hashtag #unselfie that says why you support us! The social sharing will help broaden awareness for our cause.
  • Make Gwyneth’s Gift your charity of choice.  Donate to our cause.

Over the next three weeks, GGF will be posting stories of our work and ways in which our supporters can contribute towards our mission. Together we give. And together, we will create a world where everyone can save a life.
