The holiday shopping season is right around the corner, and with it comes some great opportunities to support Let’s Get Ready’s work to make a college degree accessible to every student, no matter their socioeconomic background. November 28, 2017 is #GivingTuesday, an exciting time when individual contributions can go a long way.
Starting at 8am on #GivingTuesday, you can double your impact by donating to Let’s Get Ready on Facebook!Contributions made through Facebook’s giving tools are eligible to be matched by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation*. [NOTE 11/28: The total of $2 million in donations through Facebook has been reached! See Bill & Mellinda Gates Foundation’s page for more information.] Facebook is also waiving all fees for donations made through its charitable giving tools for the entire day, so 100% of your donation goes directly to Let’s Get Ready.
To raise funds through Facebook, visit the “Fundraisers” section of our page on November 28 after 8am EST, hit the “+ Raise Money” button on the upper right, and follow the instructions. Share it with your friends to boost your donations. To make an individual, direct donation, hit the “Donate” button on the upper-right corner of our page.
And if Facebook isn’t an option, you can contribute via our website!
If you’re shopping online for the holidays, be sure to hit up our Amazon Smile link. A small portion of money spent through your Amazon account will be donated to Let’s Get Ready at no cost to you. We recommend activating Amazon Smile before Cyber Monday, November 27 when you can score some serious bargains online.
