On Giving Tuesday, the Joe Andruzzi Foundation is once again partnering with long-time supporter Bob’s Discount Furniture to double the impact you can make in the lives of New England cancer patients who are in need of financial assistance.
All Giving Tuesday donations made to JAF on Tuesday, December 3, 2019, will be matched by Bob’s Discount Furniture, dollar for dollar, up to $50,000 – with 100% of the proceeds benefiting JAF patients and their families!
The “pay it forward” mantra is deeply embedded into the fabric of our Foundation, and we hope you will join us in supporting cancer patients and their families in honor of Giving Tuesday.
Additionally, when you donate to JAF on Giving Tuesday you could receive a “thank you” selfie video from the big man, Joe, himself, Foundation staff, committed volunteers, or a Patient Recipient. You’re also invited to “gift” your selfie to someone you know who might be battling cancer and could use a positive, upbeat moment.
What Is Giving Tuesday?
Entering its seventh year, Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, Giving Tuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog of resources.
