CaringBridge Launches August Giving Campaign

Eagan, Minn. (Aug. 22, 2022) – CaringBridge is launching a giving appeal on August 23 and 24 where CaringBridge donors can help continue spreading hope, healing and connection through a financial gift.

The campaign includes a generous matching gift donated by Jeannine Rivet and Warren Herreid. Donations received on August 23 and 24 will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $15,000.

While enduring a health challenge, patients and caregivers need to be supported. Families appreciate the ability to quickly reach out to loved ones and accept donations, such as the Rodriguez family. When Sam and Katie’s son was diagnosed with cancer, they used CaringBridge to keep loved ones connected, and to process their own emotions throughout treatment.

“Anyone handing a significant health challenge can benefit from support and community,” says Tia Newcomer, CaringBridge CEO. “The past couple years have yet again demonstrated the value of health providers and caregivers. To keep providing care, caregivers need to know they are supported. They can access community through our free website. We are grateful for our generous donors and supporters who understand the need and whose donations allow our website to provide an accessible support network to thousands of families.”

A donor-supported nonprofit, CaringBridge has provided a platform for over 300,000 people a day to easily connect with family and friends during health journeys. Each donation supporting the operation of thousands of ad-free, secure, privacy-protected websites where millions of people connect with loved ones for the emotional and financial support they need.
