ON GIVING TUESDAY, MAY 5TH, SUPPORT PAPILLON'S MISSION TO SUPPORT HEALTHY GRIEVING IN MONTEREY COUNTY
This Tuesday, May 5, 2020, we are joining a national day of generosity. Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their community and world. It’s a day when you can make a big impact on Papillon Center for Loss and Transition and on those grieving the loss of a loved one or beloved pet. With your help, we can raise funds to keep our services going during these uncertain times of COVID-19. You know what it is like to be isolated right now and grieving the loss of seeing your friends and family. Imagine if you were accustomed to attending one of our drop-in groups, but now you are isolated as you grieve the loss of your loved one or beloved pet as well. Our goal is to be there, whether in person or virtually, to offer support to those in grief, especially during a pandemic.
How can you be a part of Giving Tuesday? Here are a few simple ideas:
Consider making a one time or monthly gift on Giving Tuesday. Click on the blue DONATE button in the top right corner of our home page here on our website. Did you know your monthly gift can help sustain Papillon during uncertain times like these?
Help us get the word out on social media – share our Facebook page with the hashtag #GivingTuesday. Use your own social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to encourage others to give to Papillon.
Take photos demonstrating why you love Papillon, post on our Facebook page and share on your own social media with a link to our page or website.
Pick up the phone and call someone you know is grieving or might be having a hard time – we are all grieving during this time of COVID-19. Our collective grief includes the loss of our jobs, our freedoms, our health, our way of conducting our lives and the anticipation of grief to come if a loved one becomes ill. Calling someone, checking in and offering a listening ear is a gift. Giving Tuesday is the perfect day to do this!
With your support, Papillon can continue to support those who are grieving in Monterey County and help to build healthier communities. Thank you, and please stay safe and well.
