Give If You Can


If you are not actively fundraising but you are still interested in celebrating #GivingTuesday, consider donating to HelpHOPELive’s General Operating Fund. Your donation will help us to continue providing one-on-one fundraising support to thousands of patients and families nationwide who are facing significant financial hardship because they need a transplant or are living with a catastrophic injury or illness.

If you’re not able to give, you can still Like and Share the posts, quotes and promotions that matter to you! Give support to your favorite nonprofits and causes so that others can donate and join the movement.


Be The Change


#GivingTuesday isn’t just about money: it’s about doing good. Put your focus into something good today, whether that’s a volunteer opportunity or a random act of kindness that will brighten a stranger’s day. Don’t forget to keep the holiday spirit alive throughout December and beyond! Together, we can help good go viral, today and all year ‘round.


Join us in celebrating this day of giving and gratitude! Find us on Facebook or tag @HelpHOPELiveOrg on Twitter and join the movement.

Your Next Selfie Can Make The World A Better Place

During the holiday season, it’s easy to get caught up in the hype and become fixated on shopping and spending. #GivingTuesday is meant to counteract those rampant indulgences by encouraging all of us to donate to worthy nonprofit causes.


What is an #UNselfie?


An #UNselfie is a picture of you showing how you support worthy causes during the holidays or all year round. An #UNselfie could explain why you support a particular cause, highlight your #GivingTuesday plans or even reveal a random act of kindness that you took part in this year.

Little by little, your #GivingTuesday actions and #UNselfies can help to perpetuate a massive movement that encourages all of us to give just a little bit more during the holiday season.

You can also use your #UNselfie to highlight a HelpHOPELive Campaign that you support in order to gain traction for #GivingTuesday on December 1, when there are no credit card fees on all donations to HelpHOPELive Campaigns.


What does an #UNselfie look like?


Here are a few examples from our staff. Find additional #UNselfies on our Facebook page.
