“Home” is the place we all want to go when we aren’t feeling well. This is especially true for patients undergoing cancer treatment, who are experiencing nausea, exhaustion and pain. For many cancer patients, their diagnosis can also bring anxiety and worry due to the devastating financial impact of their cancer diagnosis.
The Joe Andruzzi Foundation understands the hidden costs that cancer treatment can bring to a family, including the increased risk of housing instability. Last year, over half of all JAF grants were used to stabilize housing for patient families.
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 and families to help them to stay in their homes this holiday season.
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.
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.
