WHY DONATE THROUGH FACEBOOK? Facebook is contributing up to a $7 Million match to US nonprofits for GivingTuesday 2019. Starting 8:00am EST (5am PST) on December 3, 2019 the match will go live, matching dollar for dollar on a first come first serve basis until it hits $7 million matched. 100% of donations made through Facebook Payments go to the nonprofit organization today; which means every dollar goes to the causes people care about. Each donor can have up to $20,000 in eligible donations matched on GivingTuesday. Facebook will cover all processing fees so that when you donate using Facebook's payments platform to a nonprofit organization, 100% of your donation goes to support the cause you care about.
What is Giving Tuesday?
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

How do I get involved?
Hearts With Hands and the people of the Grand Bahamas need your help! HWH has been asked to assist students and family's that have been displaced by Hurricane Dorian with Box of Hope food boxes, Christmas Gifts, and more. We will need to have 500 of the Box of Hope food boxes, Christmas gifts for 300 students, socks, and shoes ready for delivery by the start of Christmas break. In addition to the items needed, we also have transportation costs to get the items to the Bahamas. How can you help? 1 Gift = $10 // 1 Box of Hope = $20 // 1 pallet (100 Box of Hope) = $2,000 // 5 pallets (500 Box of Hope) = $10,000! We need people like you to partner with us, as we meet this need. Thank you!
