Rapha House is excited to launch our 2nd annual Giving Tuesday campaign and want you, our valued partners, to have a chance to be part of this unique opportunity!
First, a little history about Giving Tuesday:
It seems the holiday season begins earlier every year, but the frenzy of shopping truly launches the day after Thanksgiving - commonly known as Black Friday.
As more and more people began to turn to online shopping, Cyber Monday emerged, too. Although all this shopping is done in the name of giving gifts to loved ones, it sometimes feels like the goodwill of the holiday season fades into the background. In 2012, a few nonprofit professionals decided to do something about it.
Several organizations joined forces to create the first annual Giving Tuesday. Over 2,500 social impact organizations participated in the inaugural event, raising more than $10 million.
But Giving Tuesday was just getting started.
In 2013, the number of participating organizations quadrupled and donations nearly doubled.
In 2014, more than 20,000 organizations raised $45.7 million. and in 2015, $116.7 million was raised.
And just last year, the giving day raised over $177 million online.
Rapha House would love to partner with you for Giving Tuesday!
Every dollar you donate will be a direct step toward abolishing sex slavery and exploitation of underage victims.
We have some exciting news to share about this event in the days ahead, so be sure to keep an eye out via email and Social Media!
