This GivingTuesday, HCS – Home Healthcare, Hospice & Community Services will inspire generosity with a matching pledge from MatrixCare for hospice education.
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. GivingTuesday will kick off the generosity season this year by inspiring people to give back on November 29, 2022, and throughout the year.
HCS joined Giving Tuesday to include those who wish to be part of a global movement and specifically during National Hospice Month to support those at the end of life and their loved ones. The word hospice is frightening to many people as it often means the end or immediately someone will die and be gone. “No one is ready. With education to learn about the benefits of hospice and the team that provides support, financially, emotionally, clinically is truly what is meant by hospice. Dignity, the chance to have a great end of life experience is what hospice is truly about. And you never forget the experience.”
GivingTuesday was launched in 2012 as a simple idea: to create a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
People demonstrate generosity in many ways on GivingTuesday. GivingTuesday has raised billions of dollars for critical causes around the world and gets billions of impressions on social media from people and organizations speaking up for the causes that matter to them and encouraging others to get involved in their communities.
“GivingTuesday inspires people all around the world to embrace their power to drive progress around the causes they care about, not just on one day but throughout the year.” said Asha Curran, Giving Tuesday’s CEO, and co-founder. “With country and community leaders, millions of organizations, and countless givers of all kinds, GivingTuesday is creating a shared space where we can see the radical implications of a more generous world.”
