The staff and volunteers of CCH are overwhelmed with gratitude over the enthusiastic support offered this past Giving Tuesday. Over 400 generous people contributed more than $90,000 to CCH during this annual celebration of giving.
CCH is grateful to longtime supporters Robert Pasin & Muriel Quinn for committing $30,000 to kick off the effort. CCH recruited 19 staff, Board Members and Associate Board members to follow their lead and become Giving Tuesday Ambassadors, spreading news of CCH’s work and enlisting others to invest in our advocacy.
Ambassadors employed all types of creative tactics to call attention to CCH’s impact. Camilla Krauss, a staff attorney with CCH’s Law Project, posted a photo of her dog Charlie wearing CCH’s signature yellow shirt as a kerchief. Development Director Michael Nameche thanked his personal network of supporters throughout the day with funny palindromes. CCH Board member Jessica Staiger offered to match her family and friend’s combined donations to CCH with one of her own.
Perhaps the most unique Giving Tuesday campaign on behalf of CCH was a combined effort from fans of the Netflix sketch comedy series I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson. A spoof website referring to a particular skit of the show directed fans to make donations to CCH via Venmo. This has been an ongoing source of support for CCH for over a year, but on Giving Tuesday an impressive 45 fans of the show delivered over $700 to CCH.
Thanks to everyone that made contributions of any size to CCH on Giving Tuesday. We often like to say that we are stronger together, and this Giving Tuesday is one more example of that collective power to make change.
