Eagan, Minn. (March 13, 2018) – Today, CaringBridge launches a two-week giving campaign beginning March 13 through March 28. CaringBridge asks supporters to honor the stories, connection, and healing of CaringBridge users through a financial gift.
The campaign includes a generous matching gift donated by an anonymous friend of CaringBridge. The gift doubles donations received on March 13 and 14 up to $10,000 and March 27 and 28 up to $10,000.
Hundreds of thousands of families rely on CaringBridge to provide a private platform to connect with loved ones and receive support to help them navigate the emotional side of a health crisis. Today, there are more than 740,000 websites on CaringBridge that are visited by millions of people around the world each year, and a new CaringBridge site is created every 8 minutes for someone in need.
“As a nonprofit, the healing and support that CaringBridge is able to provide and foster stems from the overwhelming generosity of our donors,” said Liwanag Ojala, CaringBridge CEO. “Their financial support allows people going through, in some cases the most difficult time in their lives, a private social network to receive hope and help when they need it most.”
A donation to CaringBridge allows any family facing a health crisis the ability to create a personal website that is free and completely private. Ninety percent of all funding comes from the people who have experienced the power of CaringBridge firsthand. To learn more or make a tax-deductible contribution, visit caringbridge.org/give.
